CenturyLink held a grand opening earlier this week for its second data center in the Toronto area and fourth overall in Canada.
CenturyLink said the new data center, which is called “TR3,” was built to support up to 5 megawatts of IT load and 100,000 square feet of raised floor space. Located in Markham, the new facility has received Uptime Institute’s Tier III Certification of Constructed Facility and Tier III Certification of Design Documents.
“Today’s dynamic business environments require businesses to partner with an agile data center provider that offers reliable, secure IT services and outstanding support,” said Ash Mathur, regional vice president and country manager for CenturyLink Technology Solutions’ Canadian operations. “Businesses that operate in Canada partner with CenturyLink because we help them succeed by understanding and addressing their specific technology needs, as well as ensuring the continuity of mission-critical business applications.”
The new facility brought CenturyLink’s total Toronto data center footprint to more than 11 megawatts of IT load and approximately 185,000 square feet of raised floor space.
