Canadian Web hosting and collocation firm 7L has announced plans to expand their operations in Toronto. The expansion includes more secure colocation racks and private suites located in the company’s 90,000 ft.² Toronto facility. The announcement was facilitated by an increased demand for 7L services in Canada.
7L is currently benefiting from increased activity at Toronto data centres where demand for colocation services has never been higher. Just recently there has been plenty of action from the New York Stock Exchange, Pier 1, and others. The idea behind their expansion is to meet present needs as well as anticipated future demand for locked colocation cages, private suites, and Internet offices.
Company officials are quick to point Toronto’s construction and technology boom which has seen local business grow exponentially as well as the emergence of Canada’s largest city as the IT leader in North America. The company’s Toronto data centre itself is now surrounded by several multi-billion dollar projects.
“The need for collocation [sic] services are at an all time high in Toronto”, said that 7L co-founder Cassius Adams. “We expect the growth trend to continue through at least the next 5 years”.
Statistics show that just under 50% of the entire data centre market is located in Toronto. In addition, Toronto leads the nation in the number of Internet companies located there. 7L’s expansion of colocation services at their Toronto data centres is a logical response to current and future business needs. The company’s customized hosting solutions, VPS services, cloud hosting, and managed hosting complete a product list which, when combined with colocation, makes 7L the go to choice in Canada.
