About Rack & Data

Today we rely on IT equipment and its underlying software for almost all of our daily activities such as communication, entertainment, navigation, finances, and security. Rack & Data offers colocation services that allow you to install your equipment in a secure high-tech and green facility which includes solar grid powered generators and UPS backups.

After working alongside a wholesale and telecommunications provider for years, Rack & Data’s founder John Cullen, discovered that more people were inquiring about carrier hosting and equipment.

There was a growing demand for data centers in Kitchener-Waterloo and back then, the area was extremely underserved with no viable data centers in operation.

By May 2013, Cullen established Rack & Data and started operations in September of that year. Rack & Data was designed to serve local businesses and customers from Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, London, and Brantford.

Rack & Data continues to rent out rack space and allow customers to install their equipment and provide the power, bandwidth, IP addresses, and cooling systems to successfully deploy servers and networking equipment.
