Canadian data center colocation provider Canada15Edge is actively working towards establishing a firm foothold for itself in the fast expanding Toronto multi-tenant data center (MTDC) market. The company aims to accomplish this objective by offering wholesale colocation services which primarily focus on connectivity at comparatively reasonable rates.
Founded in 2015, Canada15Edge has steadily been making headway in the Toronto data center market by providing colocation and disaster recovery, with additional managed and cloud services offered via partners. The firm’s high and low redundancy solutions have also appealed to a broad range of industries, with recent adoptions in data-intensive verticals such as entertainment, engineering and architecture.
Outside of its main customers, Canada15Edge has a varied client base, from publicly traded companies to some Bitcoin mining tenants. Furthermore, the company’s partnership with US network provider ManagedWay has given it access to lucrative American colocation markets, with around 30% of its customers located in the US.
Canada15Edge claims that its value proposition lies in its colocation services being a more scalable, cost effective and responsive alternative than those of more prominent providers. The company also says that based on its offerings, it is currently targeting customers that range from small cloud and managed service providers to large enterprises that seek readily accessible data center facilities close to the heart of the city.
The belief at Canada15Edge is that although Toronto is by far the largest data center market in Canada, it has a relatively underdeveloped wholesale data center sector. Therefore, it should ensure that smaller firms like Canada15Edge are presented with adequate opportunities to carve out a niche for themselves in the colocation market before large-scale data center operators move in and stake their claim.
