Data Centre

So, what is data colocation? A data colocation center is a facility that offers space, power, cooling, 24/7 security, and equipment for rent to other businesses, groups, or third parties. This service is frequently utilized by businesses that may not have the resources to have their own Data Center but want to receive the benefits of one.

SaskTel’s impact on the data colocation scene reflects the dedication our organization has to our customers, businesses, and those who put their trust in us every day. It showcases how important expansion and innovation are to SaskTel’s mission and core values as a company.

SaskTel is able to have a wide variety of Data Centers thanks to our expertise in technology, including “SaskTel’s IT team, which Data Center service customers are able to access.” Statements from clients that IDC interviewed stated: “SaskTel exceeded their expectations in terms of value for money, governance of their Data Center service engagements, and overall satisfaction.”
