Canadian national broadband services provider TeraGo Networks has entered into a definitive share purchase agreement to acquire Data Centers Canada, which operates a 16,000 sq ft data center facility in Vaughan, Ontario, and provides colocation and disaster recovery services, to businesses, enterprises, public sector and technology service providers.

 

The deal is expected to close at the end of month, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The purchase price is expected to be approximately CA$9.5m in cash.

 

Data Centers Canada’s operations and management team will stay with the company to ensure a smooth transition.

 

“Acquiring Data Centers Canada will support our initiative to offer complementary services,” Bryan Boyd, president and CEO of TeraGo, said. “This is a positive step toward our continued growth and will enable us to provide services that our customers require to do business.”

 

Tony Di Benedetto, co-founder and managing partner at Data Centers Canada, said he was excited to join TeraGo. “TeraGo has a great reputation and we are confident that the synergies TeraGo brings will enhance the value proposition of both Data Centers Canada and TeraGo to our combined customer base.”

 

Data Centers Canada is generating positive profit and currently has 165 contracted customers occupying 207 racks. It serves four primary market segments: business, enterprise, government and technology service providers.

  • Do Industry Standards Hold Back Data Centre Innovation?

    Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:00:00

    Upgrading legacy data centres to handle ever-increasing social media, mobile, big data and Cloud workloads requires significant investment. Yet over 70% of managers are being asked to deliver future-ready infrastructure with reduced budgets. But what if you could square the circle: optimise your centre’s design beyond industry standards by incorporating the latest innovations, while achieving a significant increase in efficiency and still maintaining the required availability?

  • The CFD Myth – Why There Are No Real-Time Computational Fluid Dynamics?

    Wed, 20 May 2015 14:00:00

    The rise of processing power and steady development of supercomputers have allowed Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to grow out of all recognition. But how has this affected the Data Center market – particularly in respect to cooling systems? The ideal DCIM system offers CFD capability as part of its core solution (rather than as an external application), fed by real-time monitoring information to allow for continuous improvements and validation of your cooling strategy and air handling choices. Join DCIM expert Philippe Heim and leading heat transfer authority Remi Duquette for this free webinar, as they discuss: •Benefits of a single data model for asset management •Challenges of real-time monitoring •Some of the issues in CFD simulation, and possible solutions •How CFD can have a direct, positive impact on your bottom line Note: All attendees will have access to a free copy of the latest Siemens White Paper: "Using CFD for Optimal Thermal Management and Cooling Design in Data Centers".
