On July 23, 2019, Compass Datacenters announced our acquisition of ROOT Data Center, a leading wholesale data center provider based in Montreal, Quebec. With the final stages of rebranding concluded, we are happy to share that ROOT and Compass are now officially operating as one entity under the Compass banner.
Over the past few months, we’ve been hard at work integrating the two companies’ construction, operations, marketing, and sales teams. We’re very pleased to welcome our Canadian colleagues into the growing Compass family, which now stands at over 130 full-time employees across North America.
With the acquisition of ROOT’s two data center campuses, Compass can offer our cloud and hyperscale customers access to Montreal’s inexpensive supply of renewable power, helping them to expand while achieving their sustainability goals.
The Montreal facilities join a long list of Compass data center campuses in key markets across North America, including Northern Virginia, Dallas, and Phoenix. As part of our recently announced plan to develop up to $3 billion in new data center campuses globally, we’re excited to continue growing our presence across North America and beyond.
We look forward to continuing to provide our current and future customers with services that span from the core to the edge in order to meet increasing demand for cost-competitive and energy-efficient data center solutions.
