Data Centers Canada has begun construction on expanding its Toronto North Data Center. The facility, located in the Toronto suburb of Vaughan, will be expanded to approximately 20,000 square feet with its Phase 4 POD expansion.

“We continue to invest in the expansion of our facilities,” said Tony Di Benedetto, Managing Partner at Data Centers Canada. “Our Toronto North Facility has grown substantially over the past year and we continue our focus on building quality wholesale colocation space in the Canadian geography.”

The Phase 4 POD environment includes a mixture of private cabinet and cage environments and can accommodate up to 300 watts per square foot power density. All major Canadian network providers are available on-premises, with three managed-Meet-Me-Rooms to provide access to Canadian and global fiber networks.

Energy efficient technologies such as free air cooling and air containment systems will be built into the data center environmen, according to the company, which said the Phase 4 POD construction will be completed by March 2012.

Data Centers Canada develops and manages turn-key data center solutions including colocation and disaster recovery solutions for enterprises. The company operates two facilities in the Toronto area.
