Cologix Launches Cloud-First Digital Infrastructure in Ashburn

Cologix, a network and cloud neutral interconnection, ecosystem and hyperscale edge data center company, has announced a major shift in its strategy to include a cloud-first offering in response to demand to accelerate cloud deployments at the network edge.

Cologix’s new hyperscale edge data centers enable massive deployments at scale as well as deep connectivity at the very digital edge. Cologix initiated this new strategy in Montreal and is now deploying it in Ashburn, Virginia as it breaks ground in Data Center Alley. Additional locations will follow.

Cologix’s new one million square-foot, 120 MW hyperscale edge cloud campus in Ashburn brings together massive scale, interconnection, next generation infrastructure requirements, a new peering hub and the ability for hyperscalers to design their own space, representing a dramatic shift in the design and delivery of edge deployments.

Cologix’s hyperscale edge facilities can meet diverse clients’ needs with solutions ranging from cabinets and cages, to data halls, to entire data centers or clusters of data centers dedicated to the needs of a few clients.

Located at 21673 Beaumeade Circle, this new, innovative two-story facility will include 16 data halls upon completion. Called ASH1, the first phase will offer six data halls across approximately 350K square feet. Designed to meet Tier III standards, the facility will showcase the industry’s most robust, scalable and reliable infrastructure to meet the unique requirements for hyperscalers, carriers and cloud service providers. The Ashburn Cloud Campus complements Cologix’s existing hyperscale edge data centers in Montreal, Quebec, Columbus, Ohio and Vancouver, British Columbia.

On the Cologix platform, businesses can deploy IT infrastructures, interconnect across North America and grow through a robust ecosystem. With 27 distinct North American cloud onramps, this platform offers high-bandwidth, low latency connectivity for clouds, networks and enterprises to manage workloads and reach remote employees, customers, partners and service providers at the digital edge.

For simple, scalable, secure connectivity in minutes, Cologix offers a next generation software-defined interconnection (SDI) solution. Called Cologix Access Marketplace, this solution allows customers to scale cloud and network services across the platform, using an on demand, self-service portal.
