Cologix boosts its Canadian portfolio with acquired and expanded data center hubs

Hyperscale edge data center provider Cologix has completed the acquisition of two Cyxtera facilities in Vancouver and Montréal, Canada.

The first acquired facility offers 11,000 square feet of real estate and 1.2MW of power, while the second encompasses 8,500 square feet and offers 1.6MW of power.

Additionally, Cologix announced finalizing the expansion of its two data centers in Montréal and Toronto, which brings the company’s total Canadian portfolio to 22 data center facilities spanning a total of 1,057,000 square feet and 94MW of power.

Cologix expanded the capacity of its facility in Montréal by 12,000 square feet and 4MW of power, and is further expanding capacity by 2,400 square feet and 400kW of power at its TOR1 facility. The company notes that the facilities are available to lease.

Speaking on the completed acquisition and expansion, Sean Maskell, president and general manager of Cologix Canada, says: “The continued trends of digital migration to the cloud, 5G networks and high-density compute needs of AI and ML have created substantial tailwinds for demand of colocation and interconnection solutions across Canada.

“Cologix has strategically positioned itself in these thriving Canadian cities to provide cutting-edge data center solutions and foster the growth of businesses at the heart of technological innovation. Our recent expansions and acquisitions position us as the foremost provider and strategic partner for hyperscale, cloud services, enterprise and carrier customers. We are not just expanding our infrastructure; we are shaping the future of interconnection at the edge.”

Cologix has a Canadian interconnection ecosystem of 350 networks, 200+ cloud providers, 15 public cloud onramps and three internet exchanges.

The company claims it provides 75% of all public cloud onramps in Canada, including Amazon Web Services Direct Connect, Google Cloud Interconnect, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute and Oracle FastConnect.
