MONTREAL – January 15, 2019 – eStruxture, a leading pan-Canadian provider of network and cloud-neutral data center solutions, announces the expansion of its Vancouver-based VAN-1 facility. The company also announces that Andrew Fowler, a colocation veteran with 30 years of sales experience, has joined the company to lead sales in Western Canada. Both of these announcements further demonstrate the company’s continued investment and expansion across Canada, as well as its commitment to offering customers “more” – more locations, more capacity, and more connectivity solutions.

“At eStruxture, we are dedicated to our customers’ success, and pride ourselves on the ability to scale space and power quickly based on current demands,” explains Todd Coleman, President and CEO of eStruxture. “As a leading data center market in Canada, Vancouver serves as a powerful hub for enterprises to grow and house their mission-critical infrastructure. For the media  and entertainment industry, in particular, we see a huge opportunity and are proud to be the data center of choice for many post-production and visual effects studios across the city.” 

The VAN-1 data center is currently the only high-power density colocation facility in Vancouver, located in the heart of “Hollywood North” – the Mount Pleasant neighborhood.  The facility is capable of supporting up to 30kW per cabinet and offers significant capacity options for enterprise, media, and entertainment customers.  The expansion includes a 1MW power upgrade, enhancements in physical security, and nearly doubles the available cabinet space. The additional white space is tailored for high-density workloads typically used by film animation rendering server farms, as well as image processing tools common in the visual effects community.

“As part of our commitment to growing our business in Vancouver, we are pleased to announce and welcome Andrew Fowler to our team,” Mr. Coleman further added. “Andrew is a telecom and data center industry veteran with a broad range of sales and business development experience. This new hire further emphasizes our clear strategic direction to strengthen customer relationships and expand our reach.”

“eStruxture is experiencing an exciting and rapid period of growth,” adds Mr. Fowler. “I am thrilled to join the team as we enable our clients to meet their objectives for highly resilient, industry-leading density, and network neutrality in the data center.”
