We’ll make sure that you’re always up and running so you can focus on achieving your business goals. Vantage’s Montreal QC4 campus offers redundancy and guaranteed uptime for peace of mind. Our team is constantly building and deploying the latest technology and services to continually improve efficiency and reliability.

Cooling

Cooling

The colder Montreal climate means our campus can use outside air for free cooling almost the entire year. To extend cooling efficiency even further, we use hot aisle/cold aisle air containment that prevents air from mixing.

  • Highly efficient custom redundant indirect air-cooling system for industry-leading PUE in all climates
  • N+1 redundancy across all mechanical systems
  • Hot aisle/cold aisle air containment for optimal airflow
