Hosting BlogTORONTO – Q9 Networks Inc. (Q9) raises the bar again and further solidifies its leadership position with the opening of its sixth data center in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). In response to strong demand, two phases comprising two megawatts of critical customer capacity were built, instead of the single phase originally planned. The second phase is scheduled to open later this quarter.

Q9 will invest $125 million in the new 240,000 square foot data center, representing the company’s largest-ever investment in new data center capacity serving the GTA. Located adjacent to Q9’s existing Brampton data centers, the new facility creates Canada’s largest commercial data center campus with capacity in place today to support eight megawatts of critical customer load. Capacity is being built out in phases, with sufficient expansion available on-site to support an ultimate capacity of more than 15 megawatts on the same campus. Read more
