TAKING OVER APTUM COLOCATION BUSINESS
Cloud and carrier-neutral data center provider eStruxture, has just signed a definitive agreement to acquire the Canadian colocation business of Aptum Technologies.
Through this deal, eStructure will expand its portfolio by adding 8 Canadian data centers along with all customers and employees associated with Aptum’s colocation business. This will further strengthen eStruxture’s existing portfolio of six data centers located across Montreal, Vancouver, and Calgary.
With the addition of the new facilities (five in Toronto, two in Montreal and one in Vancouver), eStruxture will operate a total of 14 facilities across Canada, increasing its total footprint to over 600,000 square feet of combined data center space and a total IT capacity of 100MW.
“We have entered an agreement to acquire Aptum Technologies’ Canadian colocation business and are delighted to welcome Aptum’s existing data center employees and colocation customers to the eStruxture family,” said Todd Coleman, President and CEO of eStruxture.
“This acquisition allows us to significantly scale our platform, further expand our reach and customer base in the Vancouver and Montreal areas, and enter the Toronto market in a meaningful way. eStruxture is proud of its Canadian roots and is committed to continuing to invest in our economy, create more jobs for Canadians, and offer a data center platform that is ideal for companies that want to grow or establish their footprint in Canada.”
The newly acquired data centers offer both central and edge locations which will further enable eStruxture’s customers access to two Canadian carrier hotels located at 151 Front Street West in Toronto and 555 Hastings in Vancouver, adding over two hundred new network providers to eStruxture’s ecosystem including access to the Toronto Internet Exchange (TorIX) and the Vancouver Internet Exchange (VANIX).
As announced, the multi-cloud managed service provider Aptum, will continue as one of eStruxture’s customers in Canada.
