Cologix has expanded its data center campus in Montreal, the company announced on Oct. 3.
The expansion was triggered by demand from both existing and new clients in the region, Bill Fathers, CEO of Cologix, said in a statement. “We have invested to further expand our fastest growing campus in Montreal by adding more capacity and acquiring the building next door, which gives us runway for a further 15 megawatts at this campus,” he said.
The 25,000-square-foot expansion adds 15 megawatts of operational capacity to the company’s data center campus, bringing its capacity in Montreal to more than 100 megawatts. Cologix has 10 data centers in the region.
The facility, known as MTL10-H, offers connectivity to platforms such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud and Oracle FastConnect, as well as direct access to Montreal at Cologix’s MTL3 facility.
Fathers said that expanding Cologix’s footprint in Canada is in line with the company’s growth strategy.
Last month, the data center company was earmarked for a $500 million investment by a joint venture comprised of an Abu Dhabi–based global investment firm and Stonepeak Infrastructure Partners.
Cologix said it would use the capital for growth and development efforts across its North American platform. Mubadala Investment Company and Stonepeak agreed to collaborate to support the data company’s continued growth strategy, with Stonepeak retaining the majority shareholder in Cologix.
