RackForce opens second Toronto-area cloud delivery center.
Kelowna, B.C. – Hybrid Cloud and Hosting provider RackForce (www.rackforce.com) announced today it has selected IBM Canada’s new Barrie, Ontario data center as the site for its second Toronto-area cloud delivery center.
RackForce is launching a second Toronto-area cloud delivery center to meet strong customer demand for its services. After a long search and review of many sites RackForce selected IBM’s new state-of-the-art Barrie facility due to its close strategic proximity to Toronto, exceptional infrastructure, security features and environmentally friendly ‘green’ operation. The Barrie cloud delivery center provides additional capacity as well as redundancy for RackForce’s other centers in Toronto, Calgary and Kelowna.
“No other data center in the Toronto-area has the infrastructure and features to support our needs” said Tim Dufour, RackForce President & CEO. “When I toured the IBM facility I was very impressed with the advanced infrastructure and design. It’s a great facility for delivery of our cloud services, and it further supports our close working relationship with IBM”.
Rick Ellery, RackForce Vice President, Sales, added “Our customers expect our services are delivered from secure, scalable, efficient data centers. The new Barrie facility and our existing Kelowna GigaCenter are two of the best in Canada, and provide great regional diversity.”
