Amanah Means Trust

Your partner in colocation and cloud connectivity services.

Our story

The story of Amanah is a story of agility, of keeping pace with the evolving demands of the data infrastructure industry. What started as a web hosting company worth a meagre $100 has now grown into a multi-million-dollar company that provides comprehensive colocation and cloud services for businesses in Toronto and beyond.


In 2001, Amanah, Toronto’s leading colocation, cloud connectivity, and hybrid data center company, had a humble beginning in Saskatoon. It all started in a small storage room with just one sonic server, purchased for a mere $100. But ambition and drive propelled Amanah to grow and expand.


In 2005, Amanah took a significant step forward by relocating to 151 Front Street West, Canada’s premier telecommunications hub and carrier hotel. This move opened doors for Amanah to serve more clients and provide top-notch services.


In 2015, Amanah made a significant strategic investment by acquiring the Cogeco Peer 1 facility, situated at 1 Yonge Street (known as Canada’s longest street) for a substantial and undisclosed financial sum. This acquisition further expanded Amanah’s presence in the data infrastructure industry, reinforcing its position as a key player in the market.


In 2023, Amanah expanded its portfolio to include cloud connectivity, offering dedicated, direct, and secure private connections to public cloud resources. This strategic move marks the beginning of its journey as a trusted provider of colocation and cloud connectivity services, meeting evolving business needs with reliable and efficient solutions for seamless cloud connectivity.
