Cologix, one of North America’s leading network-neutral interconnection and hyperscale Edge data centre companies, has announced that it is bringing AWS Outposts to its data centres in Vancouver, Canada.

“We’re thrilled to bring AWS Outposts to our data centres in Vancouver,” said Cologix’s Chief Revenue Officer, Chris Heinrich. “Our customers and the Vancouver market as a whole will benefit from access to AWS capabilities within our Cologix facilities.” 

Customers now can deploy AWS Outposts at Cologix’s VAN3 digital Edge data centre, a 42,000-square-foot facility and the region’s largest neutral data centre. Cologix provides customers secure access to AWS Direct Connect at its VAN2 digital Edge data centre. This is an ideal location to connect given the density of interconnection options and enterprise-grade infrastructure. As Vancouver’s leading colocation provider, Cologix provides connectivity to more than 20 unique networks and direct access to the primary node for the Vancouver Internet Exchange, hosted in Cologix’s VAN1 digital Edge data centre. All of Cologix’s Vancouver data centres are ISO 27001 certified and HIPAA, SOC1, SOC2 and PCI compliant.

“This is a major addition to our offerings in Vancouver to ensure end-to-end connection to AWS services for Cologix customers,” said Peg Hallberg, Head of Product, Cologix. “We now provide Vancouver’s only colocation and connectivity solution with access to AWS Direct Connect cloud onramps and the ability to deploy to AWS Outposts.” 

AWS Outposts customers in Cologix’s Vancouver data centres can connect to AWS cloud services through AWS Direct Connect cloud onramps via Cologix Access Marketplace for fast, secure, on-demand and software-enabled interconnections. Through the easy-to-use, self-service portal, customers can create connections to cloud, network and other service providers in less than a minute.
