Primus Telecommunications Canada Inc. is opening its newest Internet Data Centre (IDC) in Edmonton, Alta.

The new facility addresses the demand from local small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) for better IT support by housing and managing mission critical computer server hardware and software assets in the province.

“Our SMB customers have told us that in order to stay competitive, they need to avoid a crisis of complexity — too many IT options and not enough clarity,” said AJ Byers, senior vice president, Primus Business Services.

Small businesses with fewer than 100 employees and medium-sized firms that have between 100 and 500 employees make up 97.7% of businesses in Canada.

But recent reports have indicated they often lack resources to dedicate to IT staff and infrastructure.
