DENVER --(Business Wire)--
Businesses are expanding their networks across North America to provide
faster, more reliable service to customers. To efficiently and securely
extend these networks, organizations are tapping into the numerous
benefits of partnering with network-neutral colocation and
interconnection and data
center provider, is seeing this firsthand as it partners with its
750th customer. Today, Cologix announced that OpenDNS,
one of the world's leading providers of cloud-delivered security,
selected Cologix's new Vancouver data center as the location to deploy a
node for their global network. OpenDNS provides enterprise security
soluions to globally recognized businesses. As a pioneer in security
and DNS, OpenDNS bridges the gap in existing security solutions to
provide security for the way the world works.
"OpenDNS has built a global network with over 50 million daily users
with unprecedented uptime, performance, and security innovations that

Hubbard, chief technology officer, OpenDNS. "Deploying a node in
Vancouver was an important step in supporting our expanding customer
base. Cologix's new data center provides us with the connectivity and
reliability we need."
OpenDNS now connects to Cologix's VAN 2 facility, the company's second
network-neutral data center in the city. Opened in March 2014, the
center provides 15,000 square feet of inventory, N+1 cooling and
generators, and redundant UPS systems. The facility also offers
connectivity to carriers on-site, carriers at 555 W. Hastings St., and
direct access to the Vancouver Internet Exchange (VANIX), which was a
critical buying criterion for OpenDNS.
"OpenDNS' services bridge traditional networks and cloud platforms,
highlighting the importance of colocation and interconnection through a
network-neutral provider," said Sean Maskell, president, Cologix Canada.

connectivity, flexibility and reliability they require, which is why we
are especially happy to welcome them as our 750th customer."
Cologix network-neutral colocation centers are about giving customers a
wide variety of choice - from pricing and packages to cooling
requirements to space and cabinet size. More importantly, companies that
colocate in network-neutral facilities have a broad choice of network
service providers. Unlike centers that are aligned with a network
provider, neutral providers offer direct access to many networks - some
with more than 350 network service providers through Meet-Me-Rooms.
