Cologix, a leading network-neutral interconnection and hyperscale edge data centre company, has announced its second investment in the Columbus Region with a more than US$150 million expansion to its existing campus. The company plans to create an additional 15 jobs in the Region, once construction is complete.
The expansion at its existing Worthington Woods Boulevard campus will include a newly built data centre, adding 36MW of power to its total capacity in the Region that enables Cologix to meet the surge in demand for cloud connectivity.
The investment will support building and infrastructure costs while enabling Cologix to purchase new machines and equipment for the largest network-neutral data centre campus in Columbus. The new facility marks Cologix’s second major investment in its local operations and will bring its total headcount to 39 employees in the Region.
“We are excited to finalize our second, multimillion-dollar investment in the Columbus Region, a priority market for our hyperscale growth,” said Cologix President and Chief Revenue Officer Laura Ortman. “We are expanding our powerful capabilities to better serve our new and existing customers in Columbus and across the Midwest.”
Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, Cologix was founded in 2010 and has 40 data centres across 11 strategic edge markets in North America – three of which are located in Columbus due to the Region’s many advantages, including its central location as well as its existing security and connectivity infrastructure.Click below to share this article
