Montreal to get a world-class data centre

MONTREAL, June 16, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Technoparc Montréal ("Technoparc") and Canix Colo Inc. ("Canix") announced the launch of a TIER III data centre, the first of its kind in Quebec. Designed for a maximum of three clients, this new centre redefines colocation for organizations that need an IT room ranging from 3,000 to 15,000 ft2.

With a total area of some 42,000 ft2, the data centre will serve to provide large companies, crown corporations and government institutions with a customized environment where they can deploy their critical IT infrastructures. Having a solution that is flexible in terms of the choice of telecommunication suppliers and IT outsourcing services will enable many of these organizations to rethink their critical infrastructure location strategy.

"This data centre enables us to provide large companies, government institutions and crown corporations with a one-of-a-kind product. The market is pushing in that direction," said the VP of Corporate Affairs at Canix and President of the Datareal Group, Patrick David. "It will also attract foreign companies to Quebec, where they can now deploy their relay sites. Boasting the exceptional quality of Hydro-Québec's facilities and Quebec's green hydro-electric energy, this data centre will bring world-class visibility to Quebec," added David.

"Technoparc Montréal understands the real estate issues facing today's companies when considering where to locate their critical IT infrastructures," stated Technoparc Montréal's President and CEO Mario Monette. "That's why we and our financial partners decided to invest in this promising project."

With a total electrical capacity of approximately 5 megawatts, the new facilities will provide users with an environment whose electrical power and cooling capacity will easily accommodate the higher equipment density of its clientele.

Best of all, the new data centre will promote eco-responsible and sustainable development principles as part of both organizations' commitment to provide their respective clients with green solutions.
