Colocation provider strengthens its position as one of the largest in Montréal, Toronto and Vancouver markets

Cologix, a leading network-neutral interconnection and hyperscale edge data centre company, announced the close of strategic acquisitions and additional capacity, solidifying its position as a leader in the Canadian data center landscape. With the completion of its acquisition of two Cyxtera facilities in Vancouver and Montréal as well as the expansion of Cologix data centers in Montréal and Toronto, the company now has a Canadian portfolio of 22 data centres with a total of 1,057,000 square feet and 94MW of power.

“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,” said Sean Maskell, president and general manager of Cologix 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.”
