Cologix, a network neutral interconnection and data center company, announced today that construction has begun on a 160K SQF, 18+MW data center on its current 8 acre campus in Columbus, Ohio.
The new $130M+ facility will become Columbus's largest neutral data center and will be directly linked to Cologix's existing data centers which are the most connected facilities in Ohio, offering connectivity to 45+ network service providers, 20+ cloud service providers and the Ohio-IX Internet Exchange.
"Cologix's position as the leading data center and interconnection provider in Columbus has provided a unique perspective on key trends in the market. Large enterprises are increasingly interested in outsourcing internal data centers with an eye toward leveraging cloud services for some aspects of their IT systems. Until now, there has not been a neutral facility in Columbus that can combine connectivity with the scale that can support large cloud and enterprise deployments, and we are excited to address that need with our new data center," stated Grant van Rooyen, CEO, Cologix.
