Cabinets

The go-to in our data centres for most clients as cabinets readily accommodate common data and security needs.

  • Reliable - Fully redundant power and network distribution to each cabinet.

  • Stringent Security - Individually locked cabinets with biometric controlled access.

  • Efficient Design - Perforated design for maximum air flow and cooling.

  • Standard cabinet size is (44U) 24” (W) X 42” (D), but optional cabinets can be provided to accommodate your customized needs.

Cages

The preferred alternative for larger environments or for non-standard equipment. Customized cages are available for specific security requirements. Consider the advantages:

  • Fully Manageable - All cages come equipped with 4 post racks featuring vertical cable management and overhead cable trays for ease of management.

  • Scalable - Standard 10-gauge, 1 1/2” diamond pattern mesh cage can be custom built to meet all sizes of cage requirements.

  • Enhanced Security - All cage enclosures are biometric controlled access. Optional “slab-to-slab” also available.

  • Customizable - Q9 can build your cage to meet your enterprise requirements. Cable trays, structured cabling, optional power distribution systems, along with increased security such as additional CCTV, motion sensors, door alarms and compliancy requirements.

Why Colocation?

  • Reliable

    Reliability is built into every structure, practice and protocol. Systems are engineered to operate at 100% capacity while fire detection and suppression systems feature throughout. Clients can access a variety of support tools and reports as 24/7 operational support continually monitors all critical data centre systems.

  • Secure

    Our priority is to provide maximum security for mission-critical computing environments. Backed by professional security personnel 24/7, we're equipped with extensive video surveillance, biometric access controls and bullet resistant entrances, along with related measures to ensure absolute protection.

  • Scalable

    We operate from a position of strength and stability. With a national foot printprint of 6 data centres across Canada and the largest committed and available expansion capacity, we can scale up as your needs continue to evolve.

  • Connected

    All Q9 data centres are highly connected facilities, providign cross-Canada access to all major Canadian carriers, Internet exchanges, financial ecosystems, public and private cloud providers and over 400 Canadian and international companies.

To us, it was a huge differentiator for Q9 that they already had a mirrored secondary data centre site in a separate location with dedicated, high-capacity connections to their primary site.
