New data centre to support company’s data platform for infrastructure developments and capital projects across the country.
Asite has opened its first data centre in Canada. Designed to serve the company’s customers throughout the country, the data centre will support infrastructure developments and capital projects in the region, ensuring that information for projects within Canada will remain in Canada.
This latest expansion is part of the Asite platform’s broader North American growth and marks Asite’s fourth data centre in North America and the first outside of the United States. The primary centre is located in central Canada, with a secondary disaster recovery facility set up in Quebec.
“The opening of Asite’s newest data centre in Canada marks another milestone in our commitment to ensure the data and intellectual property of our clients is securely stored in accordance with the local regulations of our customers’ projects,” stated Devendra Gera, the company’s chief technology officer. “Canada is a key area of growth for Asite, and we hope Asite clients see the opening of this new data centre as a clear show of our commitment to the region.”
The data centre has ISO 9001, ISO 27001, ISO 22301, ISO 20000, PCI DSS, along with SOC 1, 2, and 3 certifications, and like all Asite deployments globally, it incorporates a disaster recovery service model that will deliver failover in the event of an unplanned incident, natural or human-induced, by seamlessly transferring operations to a reliable backup and ensuring seamless availability of data.
