PEER 1 opens $40 Million data centre in Toronto

Posted by Rob Lewis

Vancouver's PEER 1 announced today the opening of its new US $40 Million, 40,000 square foot data centre in Toronto. The new data centre is more than twice the size of a professional hockey rink and marks the first time PEER 1 Hosting is offering all three hosting solutions - colocation, dedicated hosting and managed hosting - in Canada and under one roof.

This is the most efficient data centre PEER 1 Hosting has built to date, with increased power densities, high reliability, and robust security. Building it in four sections, with each section built as a separate Performance Optimized Data Centre (POD), enables customers to expand their data centre capacity faster than ever before, while allowing PEER 1 to cost-effectively manage growth.

The new data centre utilizes some of the most efficient products and technologies on the market. This includes a redundant critical cooling infrastructure using both a local well for primary water supply and a connection to the city's water system.

This will be PEER 1 Hosting's third data centre in Toronto and the company's 17th worldwide, adding to its managed network spanning 13,000 route miles of fibre.
