It is home to the Toronto Internet Exchange (TORIX) and boasts a high density of carriers.
Clients colocating at 151 Front St. can experience unmatched levels of security through robust physical infrastructure, stringent access controls, and comprehensive monitoring systems. The facility also ensures exceptional reliability with rendundant power systems, cooling mechanisms, and comprehensive disaster recovery measures.
1 Yonge Street
Our secondary data center is located at 1 Yonge Street, right within the bustling Harbourfront district. It is directly connected to 151 Front St via a ring-architectured dark fiber, ensuring zero-latency, guaranteed uptime, and a downtown disaster recovery option. It also hosts several Points of Presence (PoP) for ISPs such as Cogent, Allstream, Rogers, Bell, Cogeco, and Beanfield.
1 Yonge St. is recognized as downtown Toronto’s most affordable colocation data center. It was acquired by Amanah in 2015 from Cogeco Peer 1 and converted into a budget colocation facility for businesses that want to colocate downtown at discounted rates. It provides more flexible colocation services, workspaces for clients, and advanced shipping and receiving options.
