We're transforming the former Toronto Star printing plant into TOR1, our state-of-the-art wholesale data center which will be one of the largest in Canada. For over 25 years, the building was the largest newspaper facility in Canada and one of the largest in North America. But with the change brought on by technology and trends, it only seems appropriate that this iconic printing plant is now being used to help build the trusted foundation for the digital world.

TOR1 is located in Vaughan Ontario which forms part of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and is expected to achieve substantial cost savings for its customers. For one, the suburban location in Vaughan allows for lower real estate costs than comparable facilities in the GTA. Also, as a 66,054 square metre (711,000 square feet) facility, TOR1 passes through costs savings from construction and overhead to the benefit of its customers.

TOR1 bestaat uit 23 computerruimtes die variëren van 800 tot 1.200 vierkante meter (8.600 tot 13.000 vierkante voet) en biedtt stroomvermogens tussen 1,0 en 3,0 megawatt per ruimte. De veerkracht varieert van N tot 2N met een vermogensdichtheidsbereik van 1.076 tot 3.228 watt per vierkante meter (100 tot 300 watt per vierkante voet). Door TOR1's ligging dicht bij de binnenstad, belangrijke hoofdwegen en een internationale luchthaven is het gebouw gemakkelijk te bereiken. Andere kenmerken zijn:

    • Flexibiliteit: carrier-neutraal
    • Diverse glasvezelpaden rechtstreeks naar uw computerruimte
    • Diverse pathways to major carrier hotel at 151 Front Street West
    • Up to 46 MW of critical load capacity
    • Af te stemmen en flexibele stroomvoorziening in elke computerruimte
    • Flexible power densities to meet your needs
    • UPS and generators for uninterrupted operations
    • Gemaakt voor het leveren van een PUE van 1,25 op jaarbasis bij volledige capaciteit

The facility will have built-in power and cooling redundancies in each computer room to deal with any power issues in addition to 24/7 security and maintenance.

Toronto is larger than Montreal and serves as the business center of Canada. It’s the second largest technology cluster in North America with more than 15,000 technology companies employing more than 200,000 people along the 100km Toronto-to-Waterloo corridor.

Join us on June 21, 2018 to celebrate the grand opening of TOR1 for our summer event! RSVP and schedule a tour here. It’ll be a fun day filled with networking, tech talks, tours, and cocktails. Hope to see you there!
