CentriLogic Expands Data Center in Golden Horseshoe

October 14, 2009

BUFFALO, N.Y., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ — CentriLogic, Inc., a Toronto-based provider of outsourced datacenter services, today announced its New York expansion into Buffalo with the opening of a new office in the city’s downtown core. CentriLogic opened its head U.S. office in Rochester, NY in 2007.

CentriLogic provides a full suite of hosting and managed services and solutions, with data centers in upstate New York and Southern Ontario. Buffalo was a strategic location for CentriLogic, creating a critical link between the company’s datacenters in Rochester and Toronto.

The company plans to add 50 to 75 jobs over the next three years.

“Buffalo was appealing to us for many reasons – from its highly skilled workforce and accessibility to power to its proximity to Toronto and Rochester,” said Robert Offley, President and CEO, CentriLogic, Inc. “With Buffalo on our map, it completes our ‘Golden Horseshoe,’ helping us to better deliver our services within the USA and across the border.”

There has been a tremendous surge in demand for outsourced datacenter space over the past several years. Increased concerns about regulatory compliance, power outages, network security, natural disasters and cost containment are cited as key contributing factors. CentriLogic’s unique combination of physically secure and internationally diverse facilities, guaranteed up-time and experienced staff, provide companies with a full range of options to meet their needs.

“CentriLogic acts as a safety deposit box for companies. It’s our job to keep them up and running, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year,” Offley said.

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown and Erie County Executive Chris Collins hailed CentriLogic’s arrival.

“CentriLogic could have expanded anywhere, but chose Buffalo because of our skilled workforce and strategic location,” said Mayor Brown. “We’re already working together to recruit residents for the multi-level jobs they will have available.”

Smaller markets like Buffalo and Rochester will likely lead the nation in the development of datacenters due to their secure location, renewable power, and competitive costs, according to Boyd Co., a leading corporate site selection firm.

“It’s reassuring to see smart, innovative, forward-thinking companies like CentriLogic investing in our region,” said Erie County Executive Collins. “CentriLogic’s presence not only means new jobs, it also provides opportunities to attract new investment in Western New York.”
