As Vancouver’s leading colocation data centre provider, Cologix provides connectivity to 20+ unique networks and direct access to the Vancouver Internet Exchange (VANIX). Cologix’s Vancouver data centre at 555 West Hastings Street (VAN 1) is in the Harbour Centre, the primary carrier hotel in Vancouver. Nearby is VAN 2 at 1050 West Pender, which is Cologix’s newest downtown Vancouver data centre expansion, providing hyper-efficient data centre solutions and robust connectivity. Vancouver is increasingly viewed as a natural redundant data centre site for networks established by enterprises in Eastern Canada, Asia and the U.S. due to the city’s location at the end point of the largest Internet pipeline between British Columbia and the U.S.
We are excited to announce that AWS Direct Connect is now available through Cologix in Vancouver. Customers can now utilize the lowest latency onramp to AWS via an AWS Direct Connect node located in our Vancouver data center. With AWS Direct Connect, customers can connect their infrastructure via a secure and private connection to the AWS Cloud to improve performance and reduce costs compared to onramps via the public Internet.
