Ascenty is the only Latin American company among world’s 20 largest data center providers, study shows

The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) report also names Ascenty’s investor Digital Realty as the world’s largest data center provider

São Paulo, June 18, 2022 – Ascenty, the leading colocation company in Latin America, with 28 data centers in Brazil, Chile and Mexico – 21 in operation and 7 under construction – was recognized as the 13th largest data center company in the world, and the only Latin American name in the top 20.

The same study, conducted by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), puts Ascenty’s investor Digital Realty at the top of the list. This means that Ascenty’s customers are interconnected to the world’s largest data center network, consisting of 290 Digital Realty facilities located in North America, Europe, Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Australia.

The ITU’s survey – Global Connectivity Report 2022 – is based on data from December 2021. Ascenty ranks 13th in the multi-tenant data center (MTDC) category, which includes data center providers in the colocation market, i.e., that rent space in their data centers to customers.

Absolute leader in Latin America, Ascenty has been experiencing rapid, continuous growth. In the two years since the pandemic began, the company has gone from 14 to 19 data centers in operation by the end of 2021. During this period, it also launched its first international operation, in Chile. It has recently started operating two units in Mexico and will soon announce a second unit active in Chile.

The annual report from ITU – the UN agency specializing in information and communication technologies – provides a current and detailed assessment of how close the world is to achieving universal and meaningful connectivity.
