eStruxture Data Centers Celebrates Five Years of Excellence in The Data Center Industry
July 14, 2022
Vision, Strategy, and Becoming the Largest Canadian Data Center Operator in Record Time.
MONTREAL, July 14, 2022 – eStruxture Data Centers, the premier Canadian cloud and carrier-neutral data center provider, has been on an accelerated growth trajectory ever since its launch in 2017. With a visionary leadership team and an unwavering commitment to sustainability and diversity and inclusion, eStruxture became the largest Canadian data center platform in just five years.
To celebrate this milestone, as well as the employees, customers, partners, and investors who made their success possible, eStruxture recently hosted an event in Montreal, at their state-of-the-art MTL-2 data center.
As the company reflects on its journey, here are some of the highlights of the past five years:
Building A Data Center Platform at Speed and Scale Across Canada
- eStruxture grew from just one data center in downtown Montreal in 2017 to now 15 data centers, and from 16 employees to over 130. The company attributes its success to its diverse workforce. Over half (55%) of their workforce identify as a diverse, and their leadership team is made up of 40% women.
- In 2017, eStruxture acquired and transformed the Montreal Gazette’s former printing facility into a one-of-a-kind, hyperscale-grade data center with over 30MW of power.
- In 2021, the company made its fifth acquisition and consolidated its presence on a national scale by taking over the entire Canadian data center business from Aptum.
- A few months ago, eStruxture announced the building of CAL-2, its second facility in Calgary. Ready in the fourth quarter of 2022, the CAL-2 will be the largest, Tier III designed data center in the Calgary area, bringing true hyperscale capacity to the market with over 20MW of power and 93,000 square feet of space.
Vision, Strategy, and Industry Leadership
As the only remaining major Canadian-owned and operated data center, eStruxture has emerged as a true industry leader and trailblazer and the company’s success story has been featured numerous times in the media.
