Q9 Networks Inc., a Canadian provider of outsourced data centre infrastructure services, has opened a second facility in Calgary.
According to the company, the new centre opens with more than 22% of its capacity already reserved by new and existing customers, including a previously announced anchor tenant.
Built at a cost of $20 million, it has a total capacity of 1,200 cabinet equivalents and can be used as a primary facility or as an active disaster recovery site.
The centre is also equipped with biometric security systems, video surveillance, on-site security officers and redundant power, HVAC and fire-suppression systems.
It represents the second of three major expansion projects by Q9 this year. A new 1,000 cabinet facility opened in Toronto in January and a 1,200 cabinet expansion of the companys centre in Brampton, Ont. is scheduled to open in the fall.
