Storing your data has never been safer

Kelowna is considered one of the best locations in North America to locate a data centre. Its seismically stable geographic location, temperate climate and minimal probability of both natural and man-made events presents a very low risk profile. Kelowna advantages include abundant diverse fiber networks and reliable hydroelectric power. The city has an international airport and ample amenities.

The GigaCentre is a single story concrete building on a cul-d-sac (no through traffic), well isolated from risks such as heavy industrial facilities, highways or rail lines. It is secured and monitored 24x7x365 with alarms, cameras, biometric access points, man traps and a permanently staffed Network Operations Centre. GigaCentre operations are SSAE 16 SOC 1 and CSAE 3416 certified.

Colocation cages and cabinets

Colocation packages range from 25U half rack through customized GigaVaults in sizes from 6 to 100 racks. We support exceptionally high power densities, up to 25kW per rack. Power options include both single path N+1 and dual path 2(N+1). Easily connect to our Cloud services on our secure 10Gbps internal network.

Various additional services are available, including 24/7 Eyes & Hands, SAN, offsite data backup and Internet bandwidth.

Green & Sustainable

A key TeraGo goal is to make the GigaCentre among the greenest data centres in operation.

Data centres in many areas are powered by coal-fired or natural gas electrical generation plants. These data centres emit tremendous amounts of CO2 as a bi-product of their power consumption. Tapping into British Columbia’s abundant supply of clean hydroelectric power, the GigaCentre has a carbon footprint which is up to 50 times smaller than the average coal-powered North American data centre.

Kelowna’s temperate climate enables TeraGo to leverage cool outside temperatures with our ‘free cooling’ chillers, up to 8 months of the year. Design choices like cold aisle containment and modular construction further reduce power use. And we operate technologies such as virtualization, redundant 10Gbps network links, and cloud computing to optimize IT efficiency.
