A data centre built to exceed the auditor’s requirements

Certifications aren’t enough. Get help from experts who have real world experience building disaster proof, forward thinking solutions.

Operating a data centre in a regular office building means running into serious limitations for compliance, power, cooling and space. With Pathway’s data centre, you get complete assurance that power and space will always be available to meet your immediate and long-term needs. Our data centre is fully audited, has redundancies in place that exceed Tier III requirements and even generates its own power on site.

Tailored solutions

We’re always here to help you tailor your solution to your specific needs. You are not charged for every little interaction with our support team. Decisions are made quicker because our business has fewer layers of management. Combine that with our custom data suites and scalable infrastructure — Pathway can build any data centre, cloud or colocation solution you need.

Canadian and private

Our data centre is located in Markham, Ontario, beyond the reach of U.S. laws like the Patriot Act. Your data doesn’t leave Canadian soil. Get all the privacy and proximity you need to secure your business. Pathway offers 3-factor authentication, secure cabinets, private data suites and data segregation.

Reliability and uptime

Backups at every level ensure your infrastructure never goes down. Multiple levels of redundancy for power, cooling, disaster recovery and networks are built right in. You get customer-focused SLAs and a minimum 99.9% uptime guarantee. Our guarantees are practical and real – unrealistic uptimes are never made, such as 100%, with a long list of exceptions.

Managed services

Heating, cooling, power, security, and day-to-day maintenance are taken care of so you don’t have to. If you need more help, you can get remote reboot, remote hands, network and device monitoring, server management, data backups, tape rotation, OS patch management, application support, cabling, and equipment storage for a fraction of the cost of doing it in-house.

Secure & Compliant

In business, trust doesn’t come easy. All of our services pass through our Tier III data centre backed by ISO 9001:2015, ISO 27001:2013 certification and SOC 2 Type II compliance for the ultimate reliability, security and privacy. Your data is protected 24x7x365 by perimeter alarms, biometrics, video surveillance, firewalls and intrusion systems. The same degree of care is applied to our hiring practices.

Quality managed

Our data centre is backed by multiple network operations centres spread across the globe.
