As part of its ongoing data centre build program, Q9 Networks Inc. has opened a new phase of capacity at its largest suburban Calgary site.

The company says it has invested upwards of $425 million in its network of data centres, of which an estimated $190 million was spent on facilities in Western Canada.

The new Calgary build is the third in a series of planned expansions at the suburban site. The second expansion was completed in 2012 and nearly all of its capacity was quickly sold to new and existing customers, the company said.

Of the expansion announced this week more than 40% of its capacity has already been sold and as a result, the fourth expansion is already underway.

The new expansion includes such features as outside air cooling capability to maximize energy efficiency, biometric security systems, multiple connections to the Internet, redundant power, redundant cooling and advanced fire detection and suppression systems.
