Phase 1 of the new site will be available by year-end 2013 with full access to the 70+ networks present today in the carrier hotel at 1250 Rene Levesque West.
“I am proud of the investment Cologix continues to make in Canada and Quebec in particular,” stated Roger Brulotte, Cologix General Manager, Montreal. “Cologix is the largest network neutral colocation provider in Montreal and throughout Canada. Our new expansion is directly responsive to customer requests for predictable growth opportunities in downtown Montreal.”
“Demand for Montreal services has been very strong from carriers, cloud providers, financial institutions and media companies who recognize Montreal’s growth as a connectivity hub and gateway to North America,” explains Todd Coleman, Chief Operating Officer, Cologix. “We are delighted to be investing in this new data center which will bring further capacity and innovative infrastructure to Montreal.”
The facility is designed to support more than 450 cabinets at full capacity. Cologix will leverage its new Tier 3 design build standards for concurrent maintainability and will include robust power redundancy, modular in-row air conditioners and hot-aisle containment. The expansion brings the total Cologix Montreal footprint to over 100,000 SQF.
