Toronto Data Center

151 Front Street West is Canada's premier communications hub for global telecommunications carriers and data center firms. It is a mission critical facility and offers tenants many special features, including unsurpassed levels of security, reliability and connectivity.

When Host Virtual was looking for a presence in Canada, we decided there was no better facility to start with, especially combined with our direct access to the Toronto Internet Exchange (TorIX) and world class connectivity.

The building was purpose-built in 1954 to house telegraph equipment and has evolvedtogether with the industry. Since it was first built, it has undergone a number of upgrades in order to better servetenants in need of ample fibre connectivity, cooling and power.

NetActuate connects to major carriers here, as well as the Toronto Internet Exchange ("TORIX") in order to provide the best, low latency access to networks throughout eastern Canada.
