So, what makes Montreal attractive for tech startups and cloud providers?

 

The city has low power and real estate costs, making Canada’s second largest financial center more attractive to Canadian organizations.

The city’s cold climate is a big advantage. One of the largest costs of running a data center is providing cooling for hardware, and having a supply of freezing cold air for much of the year helps.

Montreal, with a population of a million and a half, has a plentiful supply of engineers, and is home to the largest concentration of research complexes in Canada, so is not short of skilled workers.

Then there is the abundant supply of green power. It is one of the most inexpensive means of generating electricity, and for organizations requiring power hungry SANs and scaled out storage, cheap power is more attractive than the cheap connectivity offered by a city with a peering exchange.

4 millions les boys. Jamais je croirai que vous refuserai des travailleurs qualifiés qui habitent à Laval, à Longueuil ou même à Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue!
