CirrusHosting announced on Wednesday an expanded relationship with Cologix to offer web hosting services in data centers in Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver, allowing it to meet growing demand by businesses and government organizations in Canada.
CirrusHosting offers managed web hosting services, colocation services, and private cloud management. Earlier this month, CirrusHosting became the latest cloud host to allow clients to build virtual private networks within its public cloud.
As privacy concerns mount, it is important for businesses to have assurance that their data is being housed within the country they operate. Offering three locations across Canada will give CirrusHosting customers the ability to improve latency and serve customers across the country while meeting compliance and legal requirements.
“Cologix is the leading network neutral data center provider in Canada which is important to us because leveraging their data centers allows us to ensure scalability and redundancy while gaining access to the best cost curve for the network services that make the cloud go,” Cirrus CEO Ehsan Mirdamadi said. “In addition, CirrusHosting are committed to helping our Canadian clients ensure their data is handled appropriately and our relationship with Cologix helps us to accommodate our rapidly growing client base without compromising our commitment to Canadian data sovereignty.”
From these locations, CirrusHosting will offer VPS, enterprise and SMB cloud hosting, dedicated servers, and collaboration services including Open-Xchange, Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft Sharepoint.
