The Toronto center is fully equipped with high-speed fiber connections and upstream connections to Tier-1 bandwidth providers, making for an unadulterated first step into international territory. The center is carrier-neutral, allowing customers to receive prioritized delivery, as well as providing an exceptional network and superior upkeep to Atlantic.Net’s large roster of Canadian customers, and international users alike. The building is operated by Cogeco, a billion dollar data center operator, which allows Atlantic.Net to employ natural resources, making the international data center an energy efficient and green facility.

As these centers attest, Atlantic.Net is expanding their reach for customers who want a secure, reliable data center with a native backing. “We chose Toronto and Dallas because both locations ensure that our customers have a domestic location to provide the highest-quality support,” explained Marty Puranik, Founder, President and CEO of Atlantic.Net.

In conjunction with the international center, the Dallas center is positioned in the heart of Dallas for stateside support for the international center. It is located at the Univision Tower, 2323 Bryan Street and boasts 4500 (kW) utility power capacity with 1450 (kW) UPS power capacity and 3890 (kW) generator power capacity. There is also an N-N+1 UPS redundancy and, N+1 cooling redundancy – all operated by Digital Realty Trust, a multi-billion dollar data center operator.
