Cologix Expands Data Center in Toronto

Cologix as completed and commissioned a major expansion to its TOR 2 data center, located at 905 King St. West in Toronto.

Customers have immediate access to up to 1MW of new high power density data center capacity.

“Toronto is at the forefront of three key trends impacting the data center market: 1) IP traffic interconnecting closer to the edge in emerging markets, 2) enterprises outsourcing data center operations and 3) the rise of hybrid cloud models,” explained Sean Maskell, president, Cologix Canada. “Our TOR 2 expansion is a direct response to the demand Cologix is seeing for high availability, highly connected, neutral retail colocation based on each of these trends.”

Toronto’s data center capacity introduces enterprise cage solutions to the hot-aisle containment pods and in-row cooling at the facility.

“Toronto has become one of the most important markets in North America and has been a high-growth market for Cologix,” explained Grant van Rooyen, CEO, Cologix.  “We are proud to push the market forward with our new capacity and unique access to dedicated connectivity to public clouds like Microsoft Azure and SoftLayer.”
