Telehouse Canada launches its first three data centers in Toronto

Telehouse Canada, a leading colocation data centre service provider, has officially launched its first three data centres in downtown Toronto. The announcement marks Telehouse Canada’s plans to drastically grow the country’s carrier ecosystem and continue to expand its facilities to power Canada’s digital transformation and support the rollout of high-speed Internet nationwide.

Telehouse Canada’s three new carrier-neutral data centres act as a nerve centre for Canadian telecommunications and a central meeting point for internet service providers (ISPs), application service providers (ASPs) and Canada’s largest telecommunication carrier networks. By connecting different networks and providers together, the data centres play a critical role in facilitating Canadians’ experience of the digital world as vast, seamless, fast and interconnected.

More than half (50 per cent) of all Canada’s carriers, service providers (xSPs) and content providers have a presence in Telehouse Canada’s data centres, making this interconnected hub the main gateway for Canada’s internet traffic flow, helping Canadians connect digitally with each other and the rest of the world.

“We are the first global leader with specialized data centre expertise to own and operate these facilities, and we’re bringing more than three decades of experience helping organizations grow,” said Satoshi Adachi, President and CEO of Telehouse Canada. “We’re well-equipped to help accelerate Canada’s digital economy and support Canadian businesses as they scale their digital operations and look to reach new global markets.”

Demand for advanced connectivity services is growing rapidly in Canada due to the transition to 5G, the spread of IoT technology and the Canadian government’s Connectivity Strategy, which will extend high-speed Internet access to all Canadians by 2030. Telehouse Canada currently hosts around 200 connectivity partners across its three data centres. The company aims to significantly grow this ecosystem and meet growing demand by upgrading facilities, expanding capacity and exploring opportunities to grow its Canadian presence.

“We recognize the significance of these data centres to Canada’s digital infrastructure and how we can contribute to building Canada’s technology leadership and competitive edge in an increasingly interconnected world,” said Adachi. “Our commitment to carrier-neutrality means organizations have the flexibility to partner with network providers that best suit their needs to minimize costs and maximize performance. Ultimately, our goal is to significantly expand the size of this diverse ecosystem by fostering a supportive and collaborative partnership environment.”

As businesses across all industries jump-start their digital transformation and adopt AI technology and cloud services, the data centres will also support their growth through highly resilient colocation and digital connectivity services. Looking ahead, Telehouse Canada is exploring opportunities to leverage KDDI and Telehouse’s global expertise to meet growing Canadian demand for more AI-supportive data centre infrastructure.
