Colocation

Whether for business, education, or network expansion, a stable, robust, and scalable colocation environment is key to a broad continuity plan. MHT leases cabinets to clients on a monthly basis to meet this need. Off-site datacentre space should be an integral component to your organization's network solution. Ask for a tour of the 360 Portage Datacentre where many local carriers and ISPs are located.
