We have four interconnected sites in Canada, each data centre built with the same expertise and care that goes into every UDCS project, and each with their own sustainability features, cutting-edge technology and advantages.
However, a common advantage with all of the UDCS data centres is that they are 100% Canadian. Having your data located in Canada has several benefits. First, there is a legal structure in place that reflects high regard for personal and corporate privacy. Secondly, the climate is perfectly suited to implement free cooling initiatives, while there are low electricity rates and funding incentives that will further reduce your costs. Also, being located in a Canadian data centre brings an abundance of water sources with reliable and available power.
Further incentives to utilize colocation services in Canada include superior infrastructure, excellent transport links, a skilled and educated workforce, and the proximity to the large North Eastern population of New York, Boston, Chicago, Washington, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Philadelphia — opening up access to almost half of Canada’s population and 40% of the US population.
