New capacity, including prime space at 151 Front St., to support growing demands from cloud providers and enterprises that need low latency connections to them
DENVER and TORONTO, March 28, 2017 /CNW/ -- Cologix, a network neutral interconnection and data centre company, announced today that it has signed leases to expand its downtown Toronto data centre footprint by 30K SQF and 3MW. The long term leases secure the last available 10K SQF at Canada's largest carrier hotel at 151 Front St. and double Cologix's 20K SQF footprint 2km away at 905 King St. In addition, the leases confer control over a high count fibre ring connecting the two buildings Meet-Me-Rooms for certain connectivity between the sites.
"Cologix is delighted to expand its relationship with Allied Properties in Toronto," explains Grant van Rooyen, president and chief executive officer, Cologix. "Toronto is a foundational pillar for Cologix's Canadian presence, supported by the tight relationship with our friends at Allied. For data centre customers who value neutral access to 160+ networks and a variety of cloud providers, there is not a more important pair of buildings in Toronto than 151 Front St. and 905 King St."
"We are seeing three key demand drivers from our customers in Toronto that amplify the importance of certainty of access to many networks with low switching costs," notes Sean Maskell, president, Cologix Canada. "Online video caching closer to end users, the rise of cloud computing and enterprises trading server closets for colocation facilities all place a premium on scalable, low latency, low cost access to networks and cloud providers. Combining resilient infrastructure with this neutral marketplace is what Cologix specializes in at our two Toronto data centres."
"Cologix's growth in Toronto has been noteworthy and in our estimation reflects their strong operations and strategic vision to pair up 151 Front St. and 905 King St.," says Tom Burns, chief operating officer, Allied Properties. "We look forward to our expanded partnership with one of our strategic tenants."
Cologix expects to bring the 10K SQF at 151 Front St online in 2017.
