Cologix’s second Vancouver data centre addresses high demand in underserved downtown market
Companies thirsting for robust, network neutral colocation options in downtown Vancouver now have a new option. Cologix, a network neutral interconnection and data centre company, is opening its second Vancouver location today, providing an additional 15,000 square feet of inventory at 1050 West Pender Street (VAN 2).
Vancouver is Canada’s third-largest market, home to more than two million residents and a rich base of technology companies built on a strong entrepreneurial spirit. In particular, the Vancouver economy has a booming film production, content and creative industries focus. However, local and national companies wanting to route additional business through Vancouver have found limited network neutral colocation options downtown. Cologix’s new facility was built to meet pent up demand and create a more efficient on-ramp to global networks and clouds.
