Allstream and PureColo Announce Strategic Partnership in Ottawa, Canada

Ottawa, ON – June 2019 – PureColo, a leading provider of carrier-neutral data centre services, announces a partnership agreement with Allstream, a national carrier of network and IP services, to resell colocation services in PureColo’s carrier-neutral facility in Ottawa.

The partnership with PureColo adds an important component to Allstream’s North American colocation services strategy. This non-exclusive relationship provides early access to colocation resources, including space, power, and cooling, to Allstream customers, at a time when demand for these resources is increasing in the market.

“We have built a facility with room to grow for years to come and are happy to have built a relationship with Allstream to take advantage of this capacity,” says Rainer Paduch, PureColo’s CEO.

“Ottawa-based customers have been asking for this kind of solution for a long time, and PureColo is the only facility that can meet that demand,”  Costa Chatjiantoniou, Allstream’s National Sales Manager, adds. “This partnership is consistent with our mission to accelerate business innovation that simplifies business communication for our customers while allowing them to thrive and grow.”

Allstream’s Ottawa-based customers now have access to the infrastructure and security of a dedicated data centre without logistical and financial costs of maintaining their own facilities. “Our customers can still check security themselves, keep an eye on redundancies and there will always be someone at the PureColo facility to turn to in the event of an issue. PureColo was chosen as the Ottawa Internet Exchange, with this partnership, our customers can benefit from that internet exchange,” says Costa Chatjiantoniou.

It is not just Allstream’s Ottawa customers who benefit. All of Allstream’s customers will benefit from PureColo’s geo-diverse capabilities for their organizations.
