Cologlobal Toronto Canada Opearations

Cologlobal has negotiated a contract with Cogeco in Toronto based on a per row commitment (9 cabinets/racks per row) with a first right of refusal negotiated for each neighbouring row. The Greater Toronto Area’s (GTA’s) first facility outside of 151 Front st with full and multiple direct fiber connections acting as a footprint for the future data center hub for the GTA. Utilizing the natural Canadian temperature  and air to cool the facility, UV reflecting roofing to prevent sunlight associated heat and local wells for cooling and water supplies make this one of the most energy efficient and green facilities available.

Green Features

Green methods were employed wherever possible in constructing the data centre. All trees removed during development were relocated to other areas, rather than discarded. A local well is used for primary water supply to reduce overall environmental impact and provide redundancy to the critical cooling infrastructure. With this, outside air can be used during cooler months to cool water, which in turn will cool the air inside the data center and lower energy costs. Also, a more efficient roof reflects UV rays and heat to minimize costs. With a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) rating of between 1.3 and 1.4, this state-of-the-art data center uses the most efficient products and technologies on the market to deliver customers increased power densities, robust security and ensure high reliability. Utilizes a high performance and emissive cool roof with white membrane delivering high solar reflectance. Utilizes the most efficient transformers with onsite redundancy.

A chilled water cooling system utilizes the industry’s most efficient chillers along with heat exchangers, N+1 chillers, N+1 cooling towers and N+1 CRAC units. The primary source of water for the data centre is from an onsite well with a redundant connection to city water. This provides the best level of redundancy coupled with a reduction of their carbon footprint.
