Telecity Group plc (formerly TelecityRedbus and before that Telecity, LSE|TCY) is a European carrier-neutral datacentre provider. It has been enlarged by the 2005 acquistion of Redbus Interhouse and the European assets of the US-based Globix Corporation in 2006.

London Sites

*Bonnington House: Telecity's original London Docklands location, on Millharbour.
*Harbour Exchange: The original Redbus Interhouse site is located at 6-7 Harbour Exchange Square and adjacent to this is Telecity's second Docklands location at 8-9 Harbour Exchange Square. The former was the first London Docklands datacentre to be retrofitted into commercial office space, and had a number of problems which Redbus spent a large amount of money correcting during 2005. It offers parking for a small number of vehicles outside and is adjacent to the former London Arena.
*Meridian Gate: The second Redbus facility, again retro fitting commercial office space, but this time to a much higher standard. It offers parking for a small number of vehicles.
*Sovereign House: Redbus Interhouse's third and biggest facility, next to a multi-storey car park. This building has the best of all locations in London, specification wise. It was also the head office of Redbus Interhouse prior to their acquisition by Telecity.
*Prospect House: A former Globix datacentre in Central London by Tottenham Court Road station.
*Oliver's Yard: Another former Globix facility which TelecityRedbus retrofitted for High Density computing requirements; with almost 1MW of available power. TelecityGroup has announced that it is adding an additional floor of datacentre here.
*Powergate: A new £50M datacentre under construction in West London, in the Park Royal industrial estate.

It now operates 19 data centres across Europe - Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, Milan, Dublin, Paris and Sweden

Power outages

The Redbus datacentres in London Docklands have suffered from a number of power outages, including one at the Redbus Harbour Exchange datacentre in March 2005 where several customers suffered equipment failure, possibly due to a power surge. Telecity says it has invested heavily in the electrical infrastructure to reduce the risk of reoccurance.Fact|date=January 2008

During a power outage on the 1st and 2nd of November 2004, which shut down entire quarters in Frankfurt as well as Frankfurt International Airport for 11 minutes, Redbus Interhouse Frankfurt managed to fully compensate for the outage during the entire failure period of about 10 hours.Fact|date=January 2008

Redbus Interhouse

Redbus Interhouse was founded in 1998 by the founder of Demon Internet, Cliff Stanford to take advantage of the success of the carrier-neutral datacentre market that had been created in the London Docklands area by Telehouse. By the late 1990s Telehouse North had become full, and there was a huge demand for further capacity. The original Redbus Interhouse datacentre, retrofitted into commercial office space in Harbour Exchange Square was the second of the Docklands carrier-neutral datacentres, beating Telehouse's own expansion project, known as Telehouse East, by a number of months.Fact|date=January 2008

Redbus Interhouse was acquired by Telecity in late 2005, which changed its name to TelecityRedbus and then subsequently to TelecityGroup.

The offer was made by an outfit called Torch Partners on behalf of TeleCity. In the summer TeleCity agreed to a £58m buyout led by the 3i investment group.

Internet exchanges

LINX connections are available at many of the London TelecityGroup locations. Also present are LONAP, LIPEX, and Redbus Internet Exchange switches.
