About Us 2021-01-10T04:46:52+00:00

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. Our co-location services allow you to install your equipment in a secure high-tech and green facility which includes solar grid powered by generator and UPS backup.

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 centres in Kitchener-Waterloo and back then, the area was extremely underserved with no viable data centres in operation.

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

Five years later, we continue to rent out space within our data centre and allow customers to install their equipment and provide the power, bandwidth, IP address and cooling systems to successfully deploy their servers.

Scalability, Reliability & Security

Our approach is simple – provide the most secure and reliable data hosting services at extremely competitive pricing. Rack & Data only uses premium upstream providers to ensure the best possible connection for our customers.

We offer ⅛, ¼, ½, and full rack packages. Each rack has 6000 watts of power available at 20VAC and BGP internet included.
