The new $130M+ facility is the largest neutral data center in the region and is directly linked to Cologix's existing data centers (COL1 & COL2). COL3 has been awarded the coveted Tier III Certification of Constructed Facility ensuring that the data center has been constructed as designed, and verifies that it is capable of meeting the defined availability requirements. The Cologix data centers are the most connected facilities in Ohio, offering connectivity to 45+ network service providers (including the Ohio-IX Internet Exchange) and 20+ cloud service providers including access to AWS via the AWS Direct Connect node, providing customers low-latency access to AWS US East 2 region.
Cologix designed the site with the most sophisticated cloud providers and enterprises in mind. The data center is concurrently maintainable and offers scalable power solutions. Further unique attributes include an EF-4 tornado rating, K-rated perimeter fence, and 24×7 guards. The redundancy, scale, security, and connectivity enables Cologix to uniquely address growing market demand ranging from individual cabinets to multi-megawatt deployments.
Cologix customers can utilize the lowest latency onramp to AWS via an AWS Direct Connect node located in our Columbus data center. With AWS Direct Connect, customers can connect their infrastructure via a secure and private connection to the AWS Cloud to improve performance and reduce costs compared to onramps via the public Internet.
For purposes of the AWS Direct Connect Service Level Agreement, the Cologix COL location may also be considered associated with the GovCloud (US-East) Region for purposes of satisfying the Minimum Configuration Requirements.
