Ascenty, the leading data center company focused on the Latin American market, opened the largest data center in Latin America in the town of Vinhedo, Brazil. The audacious project cost BRL 500 million for its first phase of construction, and features 40,000 sqm in total area and 40 MVA power capacity distributed across five buildings.
The Vinhedo data center is the company’s fourteenth unit to start operations in Brazil and is a part of Ascenty’s significant investments in the Latin American market. “The data center sector continues to grow and will be impacted by the advent of new technologies such as 5G, in addition to the need to bring data closer to end users. This will be both a challenging movement and a great opportunity to continue expanding our operations. The announcements for this mega data center in Vinhedo and our first unit in Chile are the result of a promising market and strong demand in the region,” said Pablo Campagnac, VP of New Business at Ascenty.
In addition to the high-quality infrastructure of its data centers, Ascenty also invests in first-rate connectivity between all environments, with high resiliency and low latency, through a dedicated fiber-optic network that links the data centers to the world’s leading cloud providers.
“Through a network that spans over 4,500 kilometers, we are able to connect not only the customers who are installed at any of our 14 data centers, but also companies that still store their data in-house. We do this quickly, easily and safely. This is why we have become premium cloud connect partners for companies such as Amazon, Microsoft, IBM, Google and Oracle,” noted Pablo Campagnac, VP of New Business at Ascenty.
