The Vancouver data center expansion will help address increasing demand for services including web and cloud hosting with its CA Cloud infrastructure, Canadian Web Hosting says. Since the launch of CA Cloud in 2012, Canadian Web Hosting has seen a 300 percent increase in cloud and hosting services.
The move comes on the heels of Canadian Web Hosting’s recent expansion in Toronto in March.
“We chose Backbone Data Vault for our Vancouver, BC data center expansion because they have built a reliable framework that includes robust power, cooling and physical infrastructure that delivers on our requirement for ultimate reliability for our web hosting and cloud hosting customers,” Matt McKinney, director at Canadian Web Hosting said in a statement. “Backbone Data Vault’s history is a company built on the web and they have the engineering expertise that has allowed them to build a top-grade facility. We wanted a data center and a partner that’s bullet-proof.”
Backbone Data Vault’s Vancouver data center features 3,000 square feet of server cabinet space, electrical distribution, cooling and backup UPS and diesel generator systems. It is located near the Olympic Village, which is adjacent to Vancouver’s downtown core.
“Backbone Data Vault is one of the leading facilities in British Columbia with industry leading operational and management practices. We’ve built our data center from the ground up to ensure we offer our customers a highly efficient data center that offers increased power densities and solid reliability that is optimized for our clients,” Marcus Charalambous, head of business and marketing at Backbone Data Vault said in a statement. “In working with Canadian Web Hosting, we recognized their extremely high standards and leadership in the Canadian hosting space, and understand that their infrastructure needs to run at peak performance at all times. We believe that Backbone Data Vault will be the foundation to provide their customers with an excellent service experience through our state-of-the-art facility and practical approach based on our industry experience.”
