ADDS 6MW LOAD CAPACITY
Digital infrastructure and technology provider, Cirion has just announced the expansion of its fiber network and data center capabilities across Latin America, to further serve increasing customer demands.
The expansions include new data centers and network infrastructure, with the addition of several new data centers across Latin America which are to be interconnected with Cirion´s existing data centers, while expecting to give their customers improved redundancy and disaster recovery capabilities.
“We believe in the development of the economies of the region, supporting digital business models. As Latin America’s leading digital infrastructure and technology provider, we are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality services and technologies and these expansions reflect Cirion´s continued commitment to providing our customers with the most comprehensive suite of solutions to support their digital transformation across the region,” said Facundo Castro, CEO of Cirion Technologies.
As announced, Cirion’s expansion plans showcase the construction of a new data center facility in the Quilicura region in Santiago (Chile), another one in the industrial district of Macropolis in Lurin (Perú) and a new building in Cotia, São Paulo, in addition to the expansion of the installed capacity of the data center in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). Together, they are expected to increase with more than 6 MW of capacity in 2023.
Also, the company announced the addition of 6 new nodes to its 700+ network in Latin America to offer more services to more users, while stating that each new node represents a new market.
Our customers need faster, more accessible bandwidth to support technologies such as Internet of Things, augmented reality, voice and video apps, particularly in those industries where latency is critical, such as entertainment, content creation, e-commerce, and public cloud service providers,” said Leonardo Barbero, President of Products and Enterprise Sales for Cirion Technologies.
“Our top goal is to stay on top of new network demands and continuously deliver robust, high-quality services across our network and data center infrastructure. As demand increases, becomes more complex or changes, our platform will adapt to ensure we’re offering the best digital experience possible.”
Also in Latin America, Elea Digital recently announced the completion of the first phase of its multi-megawatt hyperscale data center deployment in Porto Alegre, Brazil, three weeks ahead of schedule. Codenamed POA2, the facility was acquired by Elea Digital in September, 2022, with an existing point of presence of TIM (TIMS3) in the site, upon which the company built the new capacity.
