Go Unmetered, Unleash your Data!
We own and operate our data center at 151 Front Street West in Toronto, ON, in Canada's premier Telecom Hotel, also known as the TorIX (Toronto Internet Exchange). It's the 11th largest internet exchange in the world and 1 of only 8 carrier neutral sites in North America. We built a multi-homed Tier 1 BGP network directly on Canada's internet backbone. The site supports advanced direct power feeds, deep water cooling systems, rooftop generators, and 24/7/365 security. We're highly accessible, located one block West of Union Station, in the heart of downtown Toronto's financial district. We're also 15 minutes from Pearson Airport.
The Data Center
151 Front Street is currently the safest building in the city and the most connected telecom facility in the country. It utilizes the latest technologies in high-tech surveillance, fiber optic connectivity, deep water cooling, and direct power management to keep the internet presence of the whole country secure and online.
The building was built in 1954 for the telegraph industry because of its' proximity to the railway and telegraph lines. In 1974 it was rebuilt and upgraded to become the critical exchange point for all Canadian telecommunications. In 1996 TorIX was introduced and allowed members to freely exchange traffic, creating the only carrier neutral facility in Canada.
Security is monitored by uniformed personnel 24/7/365. The hi-tech, custom surveillance system includes CCTV cameras, access cards, numeric locks, and "man-traps" that monitor and control movement throughout the building - even the use of the bathroom.
For cooling the building utilizes APC "Infrastruxture" design and En-wave deep-water cooling. Enwave utilizes the deep, cold waters of Lake Ontario to cool the facility and is supported by rooftop condensers. Meanwhile APC's data center Infrastruxure provides maximum air flow and security for your server.
Power is supplied by two underground 13.8 kV utility lines that feed into two new 4000/5000 kVA transformers. The backup system utilizes 25 rooftop generators and 44,000 gallons of diesel fuel capable of producing 23,165 kVA.
In case of fire the building is equipped with top-of-the-line aspirating smoke detection systems and hi-tech FM-200 fire suppression systems. This system is specifically designed to stop electrical fires and protect electronic equipment.
