RICHMOND HILL, ON
Ahead in the cloud – A business park for the digital age
York Region is home to leading data centres, cloud computing and hosting firms in the Canadian market such as IBM’s $42million Canadian Cloud Computing Centre. Also, 65% of Canadian head offices — including Fortune 100 companies — are located within one day’s drive of the business park.
With a central location offering colocation services in the Greater Toronto Area, the third largest financial centre and fifth largest metro area in the US and Canada, you have access to 140 million residents within a 500 mile radius, more than any other major city-region in the US or Canada. However, by locating your data in the heart of Canada, in a 100% Canadian owned data centre, you can be secure in the knowledge that your data resides on Canadian soil.
KEY MARKET ACCESS
This 100% Canadian owned data centre is located in the most central location to access 180,000 businesses and six million consumers across Greater Toronto, Canada’s largest metro area.
Toronto is the third largest city in the US and Canada and is positioned within a 90 minute flight radius of New York, Boston, Chicago, Washington, Montreal, Ottawa and Philadelphia, opening up access to almost half of Canada’s population and 40% of the US population.
Furthermore, this market has the most foreign subsidiaries in Canada and provides US-Canada-Mexico NAFTA access to 450 million consumers, a $17 trillion GDP market.
Immediate 400 series highway access and as little as 15 minutes to Canada’s largest airport, Toronto Pearson International, offering non-stop flights to 29 Canadian, 50 US and 105 international destinations — including many major US cities located within a 90 minute flight radius.
The rapid transit system — consisting of Viva bus, GO commuter train and the future Toronto-York subway (2016) — offers a shorter commute time, which can also result in operational cost savings.
The digital campus is also close to Canada’s largest intermodal cargo rail terminal and the region has seen an $8billion investment in regional infrastructure to be carried out between 2011 and 2020 to facilitate growth.
