(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Another cloud services provider has deployed infrastructure in Montreal to enhance its product and extend reach to new customers. Cologix, a network neutral interconnection and data centre company, announced today that Webair has expanded its long-time relationship with Cologix to deploy its fully managed, highly available and secure Private VMware-based Cloud solution. Webair, a leading provider of Cloud Hosting, Colocation and Managed solutions, leverages Cologix’s network and cloud neutral MTL2 data centre as its core Canadian facility for data centre stability and uptime, responsive service, expansive connectivity, and a strong ecosystem full of business development opportunities.
“We like two elements of what Cologix is doing: 1) focusing on ecosystems in ‘Edge markets’ and 2) avoiding channel conflict by leaving the cloud and managed services space to best-in-breed competition,” noted Webair Chief Technology Officer Sagi Brody. “By deploying our enterprise-grade Private Cloud in the MTL2 facility, we provide customers colocated in the data centre with access to a fully managed and custom-built cloud platform that addresses their business-specific IT security, scalability and performance needs.”

“This is another example of Cologix’s Cloud Connect ecosystem growing and creating benefits for our customers,” noted Cologix Canada General Manager Scott Adams. “Montreal is becoming an emerging hub for cloud service providers based on its position as a gateway market to Europe and its attractive power rates. Webair has been at the forefront of this trend for nearly a decade. Cologix is pleased to extend our support for Webair’s growth and shine a light on its services to our other customers.”
By leveraging the most connected data centre provider in Montreal, Webair can use choice and low switching costs to optimize its network with agility and pass those benefits on to its customers in the form of higher performance and lower costs. Webair is also able to lean on Cologix’s Remote Hands services for knowledgeable technical support to diagnose, run cables, facilitate hardware shipping and receiving, and other key tasks without requiring the presence of staff on the ground.
