At CanShield Data Center in Kamloops BC, we provide diverse data storage and colocation services for our customers. With the help of our 10,500 square foot data center, we have the space to provide services to many colocation clients, both large and small. And since the data highway throughout BC all comes through Kamloops, why not access data services from a data center in the hub of the BC Interior?

What Makes Kamloops a Data Hub for the BC Interior?

British Columbia's Fibre Transit by CarrierKamloops is one of a handful of major Canadian cities that the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railways both pass through. Most of the transcontinental fibre optic cable is built along the railway. Thus, the city is positioned very well to support the IT industry and the diverse needs of digital marketers and online businesses. Every long-distance fibre connection in BC passes through Kamloops. If you want to have fast access to every larger city along BC’s internet highway, then Kamloops is the best place to store your data. The many high-speed cables here can provide petabyte data access to thousands of Canadian companies.

Because Kamloops is ideally located in fibre optic routes to ensure optimal speed internet to vast numbers of Canadians, CanShield is a valuable location for colocation, dedicated servers and private cloud solutions. We are connected to the local network and the larger fibre optic network which spans 1,400 km across British Columbia. With the ideal connectivity of the transcontinental fibre optic cable routes, we can provide the ideal coverage and expert services to the customers who are looking for an affordable and reliable data center in Western Canada.
