Expansion targets Canada-wide international inbound enterprise business
Vancouver, BC: March 23, 2018 – Uniserve Communications Corporation (Uniserve) is pleased to announce expanded access to data centre facilities across Canada, further strengthening its data centre portfolio to meet the evolving needs of its customers.
The expansion, resulting from agreements with multiple Canadian telecommunications and data centre providers, gives Uniserve access to 43 Tier I, Tier II and Tier III data centre facilities across Canada – seven of which are Tier III design/build certified, and located in Calgary, Ottawa, Toronto and Eastern Canada. The new agreements give Uniserve a strong and enviable toehold in the market with an increased ability to expand their International Enterprise Solutions across Canada.
The primary focus of Uniserve’s activity will be to target inbound international business opportunities from the US, Europe, and the Asia/Pacific markets.
Uniserve’s CEO Nicholas Jeffery said, “There are three things in play here:
- Canada is in a historically good spot in terms of data sovereignty and security for both the US and Europe, particularly in view of the UK’s Brexit positioning, along with the new, more isolationist policies of the US administration.
- Data Centre needs have evolved to higher-density requirements for media, banking, and mobile applications and hyper-scale cloud. With these new agreements, it now gives Uniserve access to the latest leading-edge facilities that we know our international clients are looking for.
- Power pricing is in play in Canada. We can now optimize the most suitable inventory and power strategy for our international clients.”
Uniserve will continue to offer hosting at its own DC facility in Vancouver. This capability will be strictly reserved for Enterprise entities and those companies that need to be close to the downtown Vancouver business district. The remainder of the portfolio will be co-location. Uniserve can also package network systems and application management where required.
Uniserve is also actively researching land access opportunities to further its own build-out projects. Any other hosting requests will now go into one of the providers Data Centre facilities.
With Uniserve’s other recent acquisitions of Xanity, Glenbrier Technologies, and its recent announcement on block chain as a service, Uniserve continues to aggressively grow its opportunity pipeline.
As one of the Data Centre providers directors said: “This is a very good opportunity for us, we have the infrastructure and Uniserve has the breadth and depth in this region to beautifully complement our own sales channels. Given our network infrastructure and resiliency, Uniserve believes there will be a significant uptake in demand for our space and it should help to fill both our Tier II and Tier III facilities.”
