Cologix Extends Canadian Capacity with Montreal Expansion

Cologix’s has cut the ribbon on Phase 1 of a 26,000 square-foot expansion at 1155 University Street–its seventh Montreal facility . The installation marks a key milestone in its initiative to significantly expand its Canadian footprint.

The data center is a natural extension to the carrier hotel at 1250 Rene Levesque West located one half kilometer away. A dedicated fiber ring will allow customers at either facility to interconnect directly with one another creating, in effect, a single meet-me-room supporting interconnection from more than 100,000 square feet of colocation space in the market. At full capacity, Cologix’s MTL 7 at 1155 University Street will hold more than 450 cabinets.

The second and final phase of the build out will be complete in 2014.

Montreal is home to nearly four million residents, a gateway city for Internet traffic from Europe and home to the Montreal Internet Exchange (QIX).

“Our customers’ growth validates Montreal’s growing importance as a network hub in North America,” said Grant van Rooyen, CEO at Cologix. “As the market leader, it is important to us that we facilitate that growth by delivering new network neutral data centers in the region. We have done that by bringing this new facility to Montreal.”

“Cologix’s new site is a very important part of the supply chain for network providers like Videotron to grow,” explained Maxime Guévin, general manager of wholesale and service carriers for Videotron Business Solutions. “With the current real-estate situation, the construction of data centers in downtown Montreal is a real challenge, and the determination of Cologix to build downtown will be beneficial for the industry.”

Cologix also plans to open a 15,000 square-foot data center in downtown Vancouver at 1050 W. Pender Street.  That data center will be directly connected to Cologix’s 555 W. Hastings location, resulting in a dramatic increase of capacity in Western Canada.
