WCN Editorial Team 9 Sep 2016 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

US-based company Cologix has announced a $130M project to expand its data centre and interconnection footprint in Columbus, Ohio.


The 15,000sq m, 18+MW data centre will be located on its current eight-acre campus in Columbus. It will be directly connected to the company’s existing data centres in Ohio.

Cologix CEO Grant van Rooyen said: "Large enterprises are increasingly interested in outsourcing internal data centres 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 centre."

The company has secured all required permissions and expects to break ground immediately with its construction partners Parallel Technologies and Kraus Anderson.

The project is anticipated to create 128 full time jobs in the region and the first phase of the project is expected to be operational in mid-2017.
