Why invest in the Greater Montréal data centre industry? In 2015, Microsoft announced plans to develop a data centre in Quebec City. In January, AWS announced plans to build a data center in Montreal for its cloud services. The AWS Montreal location becomes the fifth North American location and the first that is outside the U.S. In November, Google announced plans to form its Montreal AI research group. Hydro-Quebec is a significant producer of hydro-electric energy. IDC says Canadian firms are set to spend $2.5 billion more on cloud computing services in 2016. Québec is host to inexpensive and plentiful hydroelectric power. In addition, the region's cold climate is ideal for cooling data centre facilities. Finally, let's not forget about data security and sovereignty issues – and why data centre infrastructure may be more secure in Canada.
