On Wednesday September 23rd 2015, we celebrated the grand opening of our new Greater Toronto Data Center. Joined by some of our industry partners, customers, and executives, guests were given an opportunity to tour the new facility, network with members of our team, and learn more about our new data center. Guests and attendees also had an opportunity to hear from industry analyst Philbert Shih of Structure Research, who gave an insightful presentation on Cloud, Managed Services, and IT Outsourcing strategies. Sonia Ojha and Anna Adams of the Mississauga Board of Trade also joined us for an official ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration.
The new 28,000 sq. ft. facility is designed to Tier III specifications, with some Tier IV attributes. It features sophisticated security and redundancy characteristics, a PUE rating of 1.2, and utilizes hot aisle containment PODS and traditional raised floor cabinet configurations. This new facility enables us to enhance our enterprise capabilities, and significantly extend our reach within Canada. We are extremely excited for the launch and success of this new facility, and would like to thank all of those who joined us at the open house for their continued support and well wishes.
