Company profile

Launched in 2018, Kao Data develop and operate advanced data centres for high performance computing. From our hyperscale inspired campus in the heart of the UK’s Innovation Corridor between London and Cambridge - we provide HPC, cloud, AI and enterprise customers with a world-class home for their compute.

Our Harlow campus - built on the site of Sir Charles Kao’s pioneering discovery of fibre optic cable in 1966 - is a development of four state-of the-art, OCP-Ready®, carrier neutral data centres. When fully completed the 15 acre, +£230m campus will support an ITE load of over 40MW, across 150,000sq ft of technical space – all powered by 100% renewable energy. 

Backed by Legal & General Capital and Goldacre - Noé Group, Kao Data is one of the largest campus developments in the UK and represents the future in sustainable, efficient and scalable computing - providing an industry blueprint to develop further best-in-class data centres.
