Cologix Acquires Metro Optic; Adding Interconnection Hub in Montreal and Hyperscale Edge Capacity in Toronto

Montreal Interconnection hub is key termination point for subsea
cables and adds a further 30+ carriers to the Cologix ecosystem

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#colocationlt;/agt;–Cologix,
a network-neutral interconnection and Hyperscale edge data center
company, today announced it has acquired Montreal-based infrastructure
provider Metro Optic with data center facilities in Montreal, QC and
Toronto, ON. In addition to adding data center capacity the acquisition
also strengthens the Company’s ability to support its wholesale, carrier
and Hyperscale customers by providing diverse, high strand count dark
fiber between their data center campuses and to the multiple public
cloud on-ramps that are hosted in existing Cologix owned interconnection
hubs. Cologix also gains 30+ new carriers with unique subsea cable
routes into Montreal and adds to its existing colocation and network
connectivity hubs with data centers in Montreal and Toronto.

“We are thrilled to continue our investment in our Canadian footprint by
adding an additional interconnection hub in Montreal and our eleventh
data center in that market. The metro dark fiber assets enable us to
connect our entire campus there, and provide enterprises with low-cost
access to AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud and Google Cloud. We are also
pleased to be adding Hyperscale edge capacity in Toronto, with unique
connectivity to Cologix’s MMR in 151 Front Street,” said Bill Fathers,
Chairman and CEO of Cologix. “This acquisition allows us to maximize the
value and efficiency of our Montreal footprint by offering Hyperscale
capacity, access to robust interconnection hubs and now also the
underlying infrastructure to connect those entities.”

Cologix acquired Hyperscale data center provider, COLO-D, in December of
2018 combining a unique product of Hyperscale Edge capacity from their
data centers with robust interconnection diversity from Cologix’s
existing footprint of seven interconnection data centers throughout the
city. This latest acquisition adds a new interconnection hub in downtown
Montreal, located near Cologix’s MTL3 (1250 Rene Leveque) data center
with connectivity between the two sites and also adds Hyperscale
capacity data center in Markham, ON, just outside of Toronto, designed
to Tier III standards with connectivity back to Cologix’s 151 Front
Street MMR.

“We are excited to join the largest Hyperscale and interconnection
company in Canada,” stated Michael Bucheit, CEO Metro Optic. “Cologix is
closely aligned with our core vision to offer our customers extended
geographic reach and hyperscale cloud access in key North American
markets while maintaining network, data center and carrier neutrality.”
