iWeb to host 20,000 dedicated servers in a new data center

Posted by Rob Lewis

Montreal hosting company iWeb announced today its plans for a new 31,000 square feet data center with the capacity to host 20,000 dedicated servers. This new facility will bring the total dedicated server capacity of iWeb to nearly 35,000 servers.

Scheduled to be brought online in April, the data center will initially have the capacity to host 3,000 servers. Because the building has never been used as a data center, it must be adapted to meet the Company's strict operational standards. iWeb has signed a 30-year lease agreement, with options to purchase at regular intervals.

The facility will require an initial investment of $3 Million in infrastructure and should consolidate iWeb's position as the leader in dedicated web hosting in Canada.

Founded in 1996 in Montreal, iWeb employs over 170 full-time employees and provides hosting services to close to 20,000 customers in 145 countries.
