Cologix Expands Canadian Data Centre Footprint

Cologix has expanded its Canadian data centre portfolio to slightly more than one million square feet following acquisitions, capacity increases and a new facility.

Denver-based Cologix said it has completed the previously announced purchases of three Canadian data centres from U.S. operator Cyxtera. Two of the facilities are located in Vancouver and the other one is in Montreal.

Cologix said it has also expanded data centres that it already owned in Toronto and Montreal and opened a new 50,000-square-foot data centre known as TOR4 in Toronto. The company’s Canadian portfolio now contains 22 data centres comprising 1,057,000 square feet and 94 megawatts of power.

β€œThe continued trends of digital migration to the cloud, 5G networks and high-density compute needs of [artificial intelligence] and [machine learning] have created substantial tailwinds for demand of colocation and interconnection solutions across Canada,” said Sean Maskell, president and general manager of Cologix’s Canadian subsidiary, in a news release.

Cologix agreed to buy the three Canadian data centres from Cyxtera in the fall of 2023. At the same time, Canada’s Brookfield Infrastructure Partners announced an agreement to purchase all of U.S.-based Cyxtera’s assets for US $775 million under a court-supervised process.
