Interconnection and hyperscale edge data center provider Cologix, has just announced it plans to expand its hyperscale data center portfolio in North America with the development of three additional facilities in Ashburn, Virginia; Columbus, Ohio; and Silicon Valley, California.
Cologix also announced a new name for its hyperscale edge data center platform, Scalelogix™. The new brand is expected to reflect Cologix’s mission to provide cloud-first products and services that scale digital infrastructure for the hyperscale market at the digital edge.
While the planned hyperscale data centers are expected to provide a total power of 200MW across 1 million square feet of space, Cologix currently operates three, multi-tenant Scalelogix data centers in Columbus, Ohio and Montreal, Canada which collectively deliver 440,000 square feet of data center space and 70MW of power.

“We will develop Scalelogix data centers in our current and new markets across North America to match customer demand. We’ve seen exponential growth in applications that need to be located at the very edge of fixed, 5G and public cloud networks and Scalelogix data centers are uniquely able to meet this demand in our markets.”
“Scalelogix is Cologix’s answer to meet the growing needs for our customers. With its massive scale and integration into the Cologix platform, Scalelogix brings together and connects the digital infrastructure and ecosystem that today’s businesses require for success by leveraging high-speed, ultra-low latency and highly secure access to fixed, 5G and public cloud networks that enable greater application performance and lower overall distribution costs.”
As introduced, Scalelogix data centers are located with carrier hotels and annexes at Cologix campuses and customizable and interconnected with access to Cologix’s network ecosystem of about 600 networks across North America and 29 cloud onramps, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, IBM Cloud and Oracle FastConnect.
