Ascenty has just opened up its second data center in the city of Sumaré, Brazil. The BRL 300 million facility features 20 MVA power capacity and 12,000 sqm in total area. The announcement is part of the company’s BRL 2 billion investment plan to meet the demand for infrastructure in the Latin American market.
Strategically located, the data center operating as a campus alongside the company’s other unit, which opened in 2017. “Sumaré is the second largest city in the Campinas Metropolitan Region, which concentrates most of our data centers in operation. We created this project to meet the demand of large cloud providers for quality infrastructure, which is part of Ascenty’s DNA,” said Pablo Campagnac, VP of New Business at Ascenty.
Ascenty has been implementing the strategy of building new units close to existing ones, in order to optimize the operation and save on construction time and resources.
“The data center market continues to grow rapidly and, along with it, the demand for interconnected multicloud environments is also on the rise. We stand apart from the competition by offering end-to-end connection between data centers (whether operated by Ascenty or third parties), leading cloud providers, traffic exchange points and telecom carriers, through a dedicated fiber-optic network. We also guarantee the interconnection between the facilities and the customer’s office, anywhere, with high performance and low latency,” emphasized Pablo.
With its second data center in Sumaré, Ascenty now has 13 units operating in Brazil. By the end of 2020, the company expects to complete four other units, giving it 17 data centers across Latin America (16 in Brazil and one in Chile).
