North American network-neutral interconnection and hyperscale edge data center provider, Cologix, will expand its hyperscale edge data center portfolio by adding three new facilities. In addition, Cologix has given its hyperscale edge data centers a new name: Scalelogix. Cologix’s purpose is to create cloud-first solutions and services that scale digital infrastructure for the hyperscale market at the digital edge, and this name reflects that mission.
Cologix’s aim to create cloud-first solutions and services that scale digital infrastructure for the hyperscale market at the digital edge is encapsulated in the new brand name.
The North American colocation and hyperscale data center provider has announced the construction of three new Scalelogix data centers in Ashburn, Virginia, Columbus, Ohio, and Silicon Valley, California, totaling 1 million square feet and 200 megawatts of power.
Cologix now runs three multi-tenant Scalelogix data centers in Columbus, Ohio, and Montreal, Canada, totaling 440K square feet and 70MW of electricity.
