Welcome to Vancouver!

Vancouver, Canada has been hand-selected as the next location for 100TB virtual servers to bring you the speed and power that you expect from 100TB from every corner of the globe. Located in the downtown sector of the city, our newest data center will provide over 20 unique networks to the largest metropolitan area in Canada, with direct access to the Vancouver internet exchange (VANIX).

In the heart of the English Bay, the Vancouver, British Columbia area is home to more than 2.4 million residents. The city was originally incorporated along with the first transcontinental railroad in 1886. Originally named Gastown, the small milling town was renamed Vancouver after George Vancouver a few years before the Klondike gold rush brought population growth to the area.

Since then, Vancouver has grown immensely, and saw another economic boom during the dot com technology years. Vancouver has recently been recognized as an up and coming technical hub, with many startups and established tech companies setting up shop in the bay, making Vancouver the perfect place for 100TB to land.
