About Toronto

Toronto is a maturing data center market and grew as telecommunications companies began providing colocation to Canadian companies. These retrofit facilities and services were traditionally best suited for companies smaller infrastructure requirements, which is one of the reasons most Toronto infrastructure requirements remain under 250 kW. Many of the companies here with larger needs have kept their requirements in facilities the company owned and operated themselves. In recent years, however, data center providers serving larger customer needs have established a presence in Toronto (Digital Realty, Equinix, Urbacon, and several others). Both the purpose-built facilities and relationships with existing customers in other markets will drive larger demand to the Toronto area.
