Racoon co-locates at Telehouse to reimagine post-production services
Telehouse International Corporation of Europe has announced that Racoon , a postproduction services start-up company , has co-located its entire technology stack within Telehouse ’ s London data centre , enabling it to deliver services to clients anywhere , anytime .

To facilitate this , Racoon has taken co-location space in Telehouse ’ s London campus , one of the most connected data centres in Europe .
Racoon now has a lean infrastructure to deliver services in a sustainable , efficient way . Instead of multiple versions of avid editing suites in physical rooms with finite capacity , the company has one centralised version at Telehouse that it can scale up instantly to accommodate any number of client requests . Production companies , broadcasters and streaming services can now all access post-production projects through one unified portal .
