Supermarket chain Tesco is investing £65m in a state-of-the-art datacentre as it gears up to expand its web operations outside the UK.


The retailer has signed a 15-year contract with datacentre operator Sentrum, to host the equipment that will power its fast-growing dot com and banking business.


The datacentre is the first stage in a five-year project by Tesco to rationalise its existing estate of 21 datacentres worldwide. Within three years, the move is expected to save the retailer millions of pounds per year in energy costs and management fees.


“This is a major building block in our ability to deliver technology to our customers and colleagues, and to expand our dot com and banking business," Tomas Kadlec, Tesco IT director for infrastructure and operations, told Computer Weekly.
