Hosting ReviewsKamloops, BC – Less than two months after opening the first phase of its new 240,000 square foot data centre in Brampton, Ontario, Q9 Networks Inc. has expanded again, opening the first two phases of a six megawatt data centre site in Kamloops, British Columbia. Initiated as part of the previously announced agreement with HP Advanced Solutions Inc. to provide data centre services to the British Columbia government, the new facility opened at 9:00am on April 1, 2011 as originally scheduled two years ago.  It will serve private sector as well as public sector customers in Western Canada.

“To my knowledge, we are the only data centre company in Canada to have ever completed back-to-back builds of this scale,” says Q9 Chief Executive Officer, Osama Arafat. “The fact that they were both completed on time is a testament to our unique in-house design and build team; a team that allows us to deliver critical customer capacity in very aggressive timeframes. With the Kamloops opening, we have delivered on our commitment to HP Advanced Solutions. We are also excited about the opportunity to serve new and existing business customers in Vancouver and across Western Canada from the new Kamloops location.” Read more
