Ascenty and Ativy team up to expand Cloud Computing services
According to the ISG, the Brazilian Cloud Computing market grew by 30% in 2019, and the COVID-19 pandemic further sharpened this trend.
Ascenty – with 22 dedicated data centers in Brazil, Chile and Mexico, 17 in operation and five under construction –, and Ativy, a Brazilian Cloud Computing and information technology service company, have expanded their partnership to offer digital services at scale.
The Cloud Computing market is one of the fastest growing segments in recent years. To help support this growth, Ativy broadened its infrastructure with Ascenty to guarantee greater stability, robustness and scalability to its clients.
From now on, Ascenty’s infrastructure users can also acquire Ativy’s services to boost interconnection. This will ensure clients can continue their journey into the Cloud without any major concerns with system integrations, in addition to having infrastructure, big data and cyber security services at their disposal. On the other hand, Ativy clients will also be able to migrate to Ascenty’s data centers, which already features 22 dedicated units in Brazil, Chile and Mexico – 17 in operation and five under construction.
According to Tiago Garbim, Ativy’s founder and CEO, the company has been growing significantly in recent years, mainly due to the need for companies to adapt to the digital transformation trend and, more recently, driven by the offer of SAP Cloud services. The operation grew 137% in 2020 and the company expects to repeat this triple-digit performance this year: “It is time to speed things up. Companies must quickly adapt to our current reality,” he said. Established in 2012 in the city of Campinas, Ativy works with ERP systems in the cloud and serves more than 2,000 clients.
For Marcos Siqueira, VP of Operations at Ascenty, the partnership will allow Ascenty’s clients to rely on the best cloud migration services, especially for ERPs: “Ascenty is very clearly focused on offering the best Connectivity and Data Center infrastructure services to the market. Having companies like Ativy in our client base allows us to offer clients from both companies the possibility of doing business with specialized enterprises, easily integrating services and assuring the security and availability of applications.”
The partnership is also expected to follow the expansion of both companies in Latin America. Riding an exponential growth wave for the last decade in Brazil, Ascenty opened its first data center outside the country in 2020, in Chile, and is already building three other units in Chile and Mexico. Ativy also kicked off its internationalization process in the same year, beginning its operations in Mexico. For 2021, the planned strategy includes expanding to the entire Southern Cone as well as Europe: “We’ll be able to bring joint offers to these markets as well,” said Siqueira.

The company was established in 2010 and works in building and operating world-class data centers, with robust structures and cutting-edge technology, serving cloud and general tech service providers, among other clients in the finance, retail and service integration segments, as well as other industries. To supports its expansion project, since 2018 Ascenty has been backed by strategic investment by Brookfield – one of the largest asset managers in Brazil in the infrastructure and private equity segments. And, with Digital Realty, the conglomerate adds even more expertise to performance by joining the world’s largest data center network, with more than 260 units across North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Australia.
