The Dupont Fabros Toronto Data Centre was created in 2016 when the REIT specializing in carrier neutral data centres purchased the premises of the Toronto Star printing facility, as their first entry into the Canadian data centre market. The first phase consists of 23 computer rooms and 24MW of power targeted at companies that provide cloud and other internet services at a global scale.
