We are excited that we now offer direct connectivity to Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute & Softlayer from our Toronto data centres

Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute
Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute lets you extend your on-premises networks into the Microsoft cloud over a dedicated private connection facilitated by a connectivity provider. ExpressRoute connections do not go over the public Internet providing unique benefits: 1.) Greater security and privacy via private connections 2.) Lower latency by traversing shortest path to the Microsoft Cloud 3.) Predictability & optimized speed when leveraging ExpressRoute. You can access Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute from our Toronto, Montreal and Dallas data centres. For more information, contact the Cologix Team or visit the Microsoft Azure website

SoftLayer has core Canadian network nodes deployed with Cologix’s data centers in Toronto and Montreal as part of IBM Cloud’s investment aimed at extending its cloud service capabilities in Canada and throughout the world. To meet growing demand for hybrid cloud solutions, SoftLayer provides the only completely integrated infrastructure as a service (IaaS) solution in the industry. Customers can create a secure, reliable connection directly to the SoftLayer platform through a simple Cologix interconnection within a protected, redundant, enterprise-grade data center environment.
