We’re transforming the former Toronto Star printing plant into TOR1, our state-of-the-art wholesale data center which will be one of the largest in Canada. For over 25 years, the building was the largest newspaper facility in Canada and one of the largest in North America. But with the change brought on by technology and trends, it only seems appropriate that this iconic printing plant is now being used to help build the trusted foundation for the digital world.

TOR1 is located in Vaughan Ontario which forms part of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and is expected to achieve substantial cost savings for its customers. For one, the suburban location in Vaughan allows for lower real estate costs than comparable facilities in the GTA. Also, as a 66,054 square metre (711,000 square feet) facility, TOR1 passes through costs savings from construction and overhead to the benefit of its customers.

TOR1拥有23间计算机房,面积800至1,200平方米(8,600至13,000平方英尺)不等,每间机房的功率容量1.0至3.0兆瓦。弹性扩展范围在N到2N之间。功率密度范围为每平方米1,076至3,228瓦(每平方英尺100至300瓦)。TOR1靠近市区、主要高速公路和国际机场,交通便利。其他特色包括:

    • 灵活性:运营商网络中立
    • 多元化光纤路径直通您的机房
    • Diverse pathways to major carrier hotel at 151 Front Street West
    • Up to 46 MW of critical load capacity
    • 每个机房均提供灵活、可定制的功率容量
    • Flexible power densities to meet your needs
    • UPS and generators for uninterrupted operations
    • 在满负荷运行时可达到1.25的年化PUE

The facility will have built-in power and cooling redundancies in each computer room to deal with any power issues in addition to 24/7 security and maintenance.

Toronto is larger than Montreal and serves as the business center of Canada. It’s the second largest technology cluster in North America with more than 15,000 technology companies employing more than 200,000 people along the 100km Toronto-to-Waterloo corridor.

Join us on June 21, 2018 to celebrate the grand opening of TOR1 for our summer event! RSVP and schedule a tour here. It’ll be a fun day filled with networking, tech talks, tours, and cocktails. Hope to see you there!
