CentriLogic, a global provider of managed hosting, cloud, and data center solutions, has announced its expansion into the West Coast Canada market with the leasing of a new data center facility in Vancouver, British Columbia. This facility extends the company’s Canadian footprint beyond Ontario, where the firm currently owns and operates four data centers throughout the Greater Toronto Area.
CentriLogic has also established redundant private network interconnects from Ontario to Vancouver, ensuring dedicated network connections for optimal security and performance of data transfer between facilities and customer sites.
CentriLogic can now deliver its portfolio of managed hosting, cloud, colocation, private network and disaster recovery as-a-service (DRaaS) solutions coast-to-coast – for national and global enterprises that need the coverage.
The data center expansion is aimed in particular at serving Canadian customers with a West Coast presence or focus, companies requiring disaster recovery capabilities across Canada, and U.S. and international companies with Canadian hosting and connectivity requirements. To date, CentriLogic has deployed managed infrastructure in the new data center facility to support coast-to-coast DRaaS initiatives for Bayshore HealthCare and the Ontario Tire Stewardship.
Delivering managed hosting solutions to clients in the Western Canada market would be a logical next step following CentriLogic’s November 2015 acquisition of Advanced Knowledge Networks (AKN), a provider of fully managed Wide Area Network and IT infrastructure solutions with facilities and customers across Canada. The company has already identified strong cross-sell opportunities with existing AKN customers that have operations on the West Coast.
CentriLogic plans to invest up to $2 million upgrading the Vancouver facility’s infrastructure for improved redundancy and resiliency, which is located within Vancouver’s primary carrier hotel at 555 West Hastings.
“Over the past year, we’ve seen increasing demand from enterprise customers to deliver coast-to-coast capabilities for managed hosting solutions, disaster recovery, and private network services in Canada,” said Robert Offley, President and CEO of CentriLogic. “Our expansion into the West Coast market enables us to deliver our end-to-end IT infrastructure solutions across Canada, increasing our geographic reach and extending our capabilities to enterprises requiring adaptable and dependable IT outsourcing solutions nationwide.”
Headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and Rochester, New York, USA, CentriLogic now services clients from its portfolio of interconnected data centers located throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. The company recently achieved 60% revenue growth from 2014 to 2015, and would be on track to achieve double-digit growth in 2016.
