Canadian-owned cloud and carrier-neutral data center provider, eStruxture, has acquired all eight Canadian data centers from Aptum Technologies, a global hybrid multi-cloud managed service provider, along with all customers and employees associated with its colocation business. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The addition of these strategic locations would complement eStruxture’s existing portfolio of six data centers in Montreal, Vancouver, and Calgary. This would further strengthen the company’s pan-Canadian platform while adding key industry verticals to its portfolio.
eStruxture will now provide one of the largest amounts of immediately sellable colocation capacity available in Canada. Colocation clients get access to two of Canada’s largest carrier hotels located at 151 Front Street West in Toronto and 555 Hastings in Vancouver.
This will add over two hundred new network providers to eStruxture’s data center ecosystem including access to the Toronto Internet Exchange (TorIX) and the Vancouver Internet Exchange (VANIX). Aptum will continue as one of eStruxture’s largest customers in Canada.
Colocation in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver
“We have entered an agreement to acquire Aptum Technologies’ Canadian colocation business and are delighted to welcome Aptum’s existing data center employees and colocation customers to the eStruxture family,” said Todd Coleman, President and CEO of eStruxture. “This acquisition allows us to significantly scale our platform, further expand our reach and customer base in the Vancouver and Montreal areas, and enter the Toronto market in a meaningful way. eStruxture is proud of its Canadian roots and is committed to continuing to invest in our economy, create more jobs for Canadians, and offer a data center platform that is ideal for companies that want to grow or establish their footprint in Canada.”
With the addition of the new colocation facilities (five in Toronto, two in Montreal and one in Vancouver), eStruxture will operate a total of 14 facilities now across Canada. It will increase the company’s total footprint to over 600,000 square feet of combined data center colocation space and a total IT capacity of 100 megawatts. The newly acquired data centers offer both central and edge locations, are scalable, sustainably designed, and highly connected.
