ROOT Data Center, a Canadian company with two colocation data centers located in the Montréal metropolitan area, has added an additional 6MW of power capacity to its MTL-R2 facility – one of Canada’s largest wholesale/hyper-scale data centers. The first of the new colocation data halls at ROOT’s MTL-R2 facility is currently under construction.
The deployment of the first of the two new data halls at ROOT’s MTL-R2 facility is projected to be completed by June 2018, with the second following by late summer. ROOT Data Center has already signed agreements to provide the majority of the available power capacity.
The build of two new colocation data halls would be in response to the growing demand of major cloud providers and multinational companies seeking colocation services in Montréal.
Cloud Hosting Providers
“ROOT’s ability to expand and rapidly deploy capacity for our customer allows them to grow their operations as quickly as they need to support the massive acceleration of cloud growth in Canada, and technology sector growth in Montréal,” said AJ Byers, President, and CEO of ROOT Data Center. “As the demand for data center solutions in Montréal continues to rise, our ability to effectively expand infrastructure, power, and space in short time frames not only benefits our customers, but the region’s tech ecosystem and the city’s economy.”
One of the fastest-growing data centers in Canada, ROOT‘s customers include cloud hosting providers, multinational enterprises, telecommunications service providers, Internet Service Providers (ISPs), as well as one of the largest hyper-scale technology providers in the world.
