TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 13, 2014) - TeraGo Inc. (TSX:TGO) (www.terago.ca), a leading national broadband services and colocation provider to businesses in Canada, announced today that it has expanded its data center business in Western Canada through the acquisition of a 7,000 square foot data center facility in downtown Vancouver, B.C.
The acquisition of the Vancouver data center will provide TeraGo with the capability to service the co-location and disaster recovery needs of businesses through the BC Lower Mainland.
"TeraGo's strategy is to build and strengthen our position as a leader in data center services as a complement to our broadband services; expanding our data center presence in Western Canada represents another significant step toward this objective," said Stewart Lyons, CEO and President of TeraGo Networks.

The DCC facility in Vaughan, ON is 16,000 square feet and provides data center solutions to businesses, enterprises, public sector, and technology service providers. The Vancouver facility will operate under the Data Centers Canada brand.
