Our colocation facility is in the Aptum Technologies Data Center located at 20 Pullman Court in Toronto, Canada.
With DS Digital Media, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing your critical data is protected around the clock. Our NOC is housed in a SAS 70 Type II/SSAE16 certified facility featuring enhanced security. Aptum Technologies is certified on the Safe Harbor List and abides by the principles set forth in the Safe Harbor framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union.
Aptum Technologies Data Center combined with DS Digital Media’s Network and Infrastructure Management give server owners the benefits of Canada’s security, political stability, and strict privacy laws. The superior datacenter infrastructure includes environmental control (constant temperature and humidity maintenance, particulates filtration), fire suppression systems, redundant power sources and UPS backup, large capacity of multi-homed quality bandwidth, and round the clock physical security. DS Digital Media’s best of breed server management and support give you the same business reliability in Canada that DS Digital Media has been delivering in Dallas, Texas for over 10 years.

We are operating a Juniper based network at our colocation facility. Redundant 10G Juniper Routing connected to multiple Tier1 fiber networks with extensive peering throughout Canada and the US. Our internal network is based on Juniper switching for both our LAN and WAN networks with multiple GBPS ports to each and every device along with aggregate 10G from each cabinet back to core WAN and LAN devices.
Green methods were employed wherever possible in constructing the datacenter. All trees removed during development were relocated to other areas, rather than discarded. A local well is used for primary water supply to reduce overall environmental impact and provide redundancy to the critical cooling infrastructure. With this, outside air can be used during cooler months to cool water, which in turn will cool the air inside the datacenter and lower energy costs. Also, a more efficient roof reflects UV rays and heat to minimize costs. With a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) rating of between 1.3 and 1.4, this state-of-the-art datacenter uses the most efficient products and technologies on the market to deliver customers increased power densities, robust security and ensure high reliability. Utilizes a high performance and emissive cool roof with white membrane delivering high solar reflectance. Utilizes the most efficient transformers with onsite redundancy.
A chilled water cooling system utilizes the industry’s most efficient chillers along with heat exchangers, N+1 chillers, N+1 cooling towers and N+1 CRAC units. The primary source of water for the data centre is from an onsite well with a redundant connection to city water. This provides the best level of redundancy coupled with a reduction of their carbon footprint.
