Cologix Opens Third Interconnection HUB in Downtown Toronto


DENVER – May 14, 2019 Cologix, a network-neutral interconnection and Hyperscale edge data center company, today announced the opening of a new 18K square foot data center in downtown Toronto. The new data center, known as TOR3, is located on the same campus as TOR2 at 905 King Street West and offers direct connectivity to AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud and Oracle FastConnect.

Cologix is expanding their footprint in Toronto to support growing business needs for seamless, robust interconnection and Cloud adoption in the heart of Canada’s largest financial and business market. With deep and diverse dark fiber connectivity between TOR3 and TOR1 at 151 Front Street, Canada’s largest and most important carrier hotel, TOR3 offers direct access to multiple fiber routes in and out of the metro area. TOR3 can be utilized as a stand-alone, diverse bypass facility to the TOR1 data center, or leveraged as a natural extension with the diverse fiber ring connecting the two data centers. TOR3 offers 2N redundancy, 2MW of power, N+1 cooling and access to 160+ networks and 50+ cloud providers.

“Our TOR3 data center is in direct response to the continued demand we see for high availability, highly connected, neutral retail and wholesale colocation that offers robust access to Hyperscale cloud providers including the recent deployment of Oracle’s FastConnect on-ramp in our TOR1 data center,” said Bill Fathers Chairman and CEO of Cologix. “Across the globe, enterprises continue to move workloads to the Cloud and consumers expect on-demand, live and streaming content and video with low latency to the Internet of Things (IoT). As a result, the need for edge data, increased bandwidth, robust interconnection and colocation storage will only accelerate more rapidly, especially for Over the Top (OTT) companies like Netflix, Facebook and Amazon. Spurred by this growth, we plan to make more investments in Canada.”

Available Capacity in Toronto

“Canada is home to some of Cologix’s fastest growing markets and TOR3 is an important step for us to continue to support current customer demand while supporting enterprise digital transformation strategies in the nation’s largest city.” said Sean Maskell, President Cologix Canada. “We are delighted to open our new, state-of-the-art, Tier III data center with customizable space and unsurpassed levels of security and reliability.”

Other key features for TOR3 include:

Best available network neutral connectivity: Meet-Me-Room (MMR) within Cologix facility with direct access to 10+ unique network provider PoPs on-site with diverse low-latency paths to 151 Front Street West. Home to the Toronto Internet Exchange (TorIX).
