Arelion Adds Vancouver PoP at eStruxture Site in Harbour Centre Building
October 11, 2023
New fully diverse PoP serves demand for content and cloud applications in media and technology markets
Stockholm and Montreal, October 11, 2023 – Arelion today announced a new partnership with eStruxture, the largest Canadian cloud and carrier-neutral data center provider, deploying a fully diverse Point-of-Presence (PoP) at eStruxture’s VAN-2 site in the Harbour Centre Building, the largest carrier hotel in the Vancouver market. Arelion’s second fully diverse PoP in the Vancouver market will provide wholesale and enterprise customers with high-speed connectivity to Arelion’s global IP backbone and access to Arelion’s ecosystem of cloud, content and application providers, enabling further growth in Vancouver’s gaming, film and technology markets.
eStruxture’s Harbour Centre data center site is strategically located in downtown Vancouver, offering business continuity, scalability and low-latency service delivery to customers on a global scale. Vancouver is one of North America’s fastest-growing tech job markets, with over 111,000 tech jobs in the region as of 2022. The city is also the third largest film and TV production center in North America. As a result of these booming industries, there is significant demand in the Vancouver market for low-latency, high-quality connectivity services to provide multi-cloud access that enables digitalization.
Vancouver is a gateway to Asian markets, with new subsea cables driving significant traffic growth in the region, including Google’s Topaz subsea cable connecting Canada to Japan. Arelion’s new PoP will meet the needs of wholesale customers seeking fully diverse connectivity to markets in Vancouver and Asia while providing enterprises in Vancouver’s technology, gaming and media production industries with high-capacity access to Arelion’s full ecosystem of cloud and content services, including direct, fully resilient access to Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), IBM Cloud and Oracle Cloud on a global basis.
“We partnered with eStruxture because they are well-positioned to help us provide our services at scale to customers in Vancouver, enabling a new level of network quality in the market,” said Art Kazmierczak, Director of Strategic Sales & Network Development, Arelion. “eStruxture provides an optimal solution to reach the established customer ecosystem in the Harbour Centre facility, with sufficient power, physical security and connectivity that will enable us to provide affordable, low-latency services to our customers with diverse connections to our global network.”
“Our partnership with Arelion underscores our ongoing dedication to helping our customers extend their reach as their business necessitates it. We’re actively expanding our carrier-neutral ecosystem to provide our customers with superior network connectivity choices. This new Point of Presence (PoP) will offer enhanced redundancy and capacity, lower latency, and enable us to effectively support our customers’ sustained growth.” says Todd Coleman, President and CEO of eStruxture Data Centers
