TELUS Powers The Next Generation Of Cloud Computing By Launching $65 Million Rimouski Internet Data Centre

TELUS to invest an additional $13 million in IT infrastructure in Quebec

RIMOUSKI, QC, Dec. 4, 2012 /CNW/ - TELUS today opened its new $65 million Intelligent Internet Data Centre in Rimouski, announcing that it will invest an additional $13 million in added IT infrastructure to bring world-class cloud-based solutions to Quebec and Canadian businesses.

More than 80 per cent more energy-efficient than traditional data centres, the new facility ranks among the top-performing centres in North America and provides TELUS clients with maximum reliability and security. TELUS wants to contribute to Canada's and Quebec's competitiveness by offering world-class managed cloud-based solutions that will enable businesses to focus on their core activities, while providing business agility, helping to align IT with business strategy, and providing significant cost savings. TELUS has been named the top hosting provider in Canada* and its cloud-based solutions are the result of 20 years of experience in IT services.

"TELUS and our 5,500 Quebec-based team members are proud to celebrate our 85 years of history in the province with the opening of our new flagship facility. This is another significant investment for TELUS in Quebec, building on the $12.3 billion since 2000 that has enabled our presence to be felt in every corner of the province," said François Gratton, President of TELUS Quebec and Atlantic Canada."At TELUS, our clients are our top priority and our team of professionals is dedicated to helping businesses develop their full potential by offering them all the tools they need to stand out and succeed. With our new Internet Data Centre, companies can now harness the power of managed hosting and cloud computing solutions that are not only reliable, secure and flexible, but also hosted, managed and delivered in Canada."

For the construction of its new building, TELUS teamed up with Skanska, one of the world's leading data-centre construction companies, as well as with Callisson, Cosentini and Inertech. This project created more than 200 jobs in the Lower St. Lawrence area by calling on the expertise of some 15 local companies.
