TORONTO, Nov. 20, 2013 /CNW/ - Rogers Communications announced today the 
expansion of its data centre business in Western Canada and a new operating 
unit, Rogers Data Centres. Rogers Data Centres launches today with a newly 
expanded data centre in Edmonton and confirmed plans to open a Western Canada 
flagship data centre in Calgary in January 2014. 
"Our new data centre offerings in Alberta present a significant growth 
opportunity in Western Canada's business-to-business market," said AJ Byers, 
President, Rogers Data Centres. "We have experienced strong demand for data 
centre services in Western Canada, and the two expansions announced today are 
the core platform allowing us to deliver enhanced data centre, cloud and 
managed technology services to Alberta's thriving business community." 
Rogers Data Centres now operates in 14 locations across the country, servicing 
over 870 small, medium, government and enterprise clients. The expanded Rogers 
Data Centres Edmonton facility adds approximately 6,000 square feet of 
newly-constructed raised floor space. Opening in January 2014, the flagship 
Calgary facility will offer 80,000 square feet of raised space, 
state-of-the-art and highly efficient cooling systems , world-class security 
measures, 24/7 support, and will meet Uptime Institute's Tier III standards. 
Earlier this year, Rogers Communications acquired BLACKIRON Data, Pivot Data 
Centres and Granite Networks to expand its data centre and cloud-based 
business solutions. The consolidation of these three data centre operations 
under the Rogers Data Centres umbrella establishes Rogers as a Canadian leader 
in data centre services. 
"In the past year, Rogers Business Solutions has taken significant steps to 
build and strengthen our position as a leader in data centre services in 
Canada," said Terry Canning, SVP Rogers Business Solutions. "Combining data 
centre services with our extensive fibre network, and full suite of voice and 
data solutions allows us to enable businesses across the country to innovate 
and evolve in a dynamic and fast-paced market." 
The Rogers Data Centres expansion in Western Canada builds on a $700 million 
overall investment by Rogers in Alberta over the next four years announced 
earlier this year. Rogers Business Solutions is committed to strengthening the 
economy and communities in the West by driving growth in Alberta enterprise 
businesses with next generation business solutions, expanded data capacity and
