Cologix plans data center campus expansion in Columbus, OH

March 15, 2021
New carrier-neutral facility will offer more than 250,000 square feet of total space, including approximately 117,000 square feet of raised floor space across six data center halls.

Interconnect and edge data center services provider Cologix has announced plans to significantly expand the capabilities of its data center campus in Columbus, Ohio. The plans include the construction of a new facility, COL4, that will raise capacity in Columbus to approximately 70 MW.

The company says the new COL4 facility will be a 40-MW hyperscale edge data center designed to meet cloud infrastructure requirements. The carrier-neutral facility will offer more than 250,000 square feet of total space, including approximately 117,000 square feet of raised floor space across six data center halls.

Cologix says its COL4 facility will feature a Tier III design and offer a concurrently maintainable design with 2N power and N+1 cooling. In addition, the facility will include diverse meet-me-rooms (MMRs).

The company adds that it has future plans to deploy more than 200 MW of total capacity in the Columbus market as well. Cologix reports that it has added a direct onramp to Google Cloud at its COL2 and COL3 facilities and expects to add compute capacity at COL3.

"We have seen a surge in demand for our existing facilities that includes a 32-MW hyperscale edge facility built less than 2 years ago,” comments Cologix CEO Bill Fathers. “In response to accelerated demand of cloud connectivity at the edge, Columbus is a priority to expand our hyperscale edge footprint. The market has been bolstered by Google Cloud, AWS, and Facebook deploying major footprints in the area."

Cologix said it plans to offer preconstructed, completely diverse, scalable, and redundant fiber paths between COL4 and its COL1, COL2, and COL3 facilities, with direct access to the Google and AWS cloud onramps as well as OhioIX.

The Cologix Columbus campus is located at the corner of Alta View Blvd. and Worthington Wood Blvd. in Columbus, OH.
