Toronto is a growing metropolis, with thousands of organizations operating in close proximity to one another.
Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) February 04, 2015
Amanah Tech Inc, one of the top dedicated hosting providers in Canada, has announced plans to open a new data center exclusively geared towards colocation clients.
Over the past several years, the colocation market has seen meteoric growth. Globally, its value reached a total of $25 billion in 2014, according to a report by 451 Research. That number is expected to increase even further moving into 2015. Demand for new colocation facilities is high, particularly in large cities like Toronto.
“Toronto is a growing metropolis, with thousands of organizations operating in close proximity to one another,” explained Amanah’s Nezar Freeny. “What this means is that competition for colocation space is incredibly fierce, and smaller businesses might often find themselves edged out by larger rivals. Given how important IT infrastructure has become to the enterprise, we feel that every business should be given the opportunity to collocate.”
“That’s what we’re offering with our new data center - a chance for anyone to purchase the colocation space they need,” he continued.
The facility is situated in the Toronto Star Building at 1 Yonge Street in downtown Toronto - one of the densest interconnection points in North America, and home to the largest daily newspaper in Canada. It offers direct access to a number of Tier 1 providers along with UPS and diesel generator backup systems, 100Mbps/1Gbps/10Gbps up link speeds, 24/7 Network Operations Center monitoring, and multiple direct dark fiber connections to 151 Front Street West. Amanah will be offering colocation starting at $99 for 1U servers, and each server will have access to its own private VLAN network.
Founded in 2001, Amanah has always strived to be the best in the industry at understanding - and providing for - the technological needs of online businesses. With a data center in 151 Front Street, Canada’s top point of presence, Amanah is well-equipped to serve its large client base, offering domestic addresses in both Canada and the United States. Amanah clients enjoy a direct connection to some of Canada’s top ISPs along with unmetered bandwidth, enterprise-grade speed and hardware, powerful security and a 100% Uptime SLA.
