Flexenclosure, a data centre specialist headquartered in Sweden, has completed construction of a new eCentre data centre for Tigo Business in Nicaragua. This is one of six new data centres Flexenclosure is delivering for Millicom’s Tigo operations, as part of Millicom’s ambitious programme to improve data infrastructure across Latin America.
The new data centre is located in the Nicaraguan capital of Managua. It was built in Flexenclosure’s manufacturing plant in Sweden before being transported to site for final construction and commissioning.
With Managua known for earthquake risk, the eCentre has been custom-designed and reinforced to withstand seismic disturbance. And as with all the Latin American projects Flexenclosure has managed for Millicom, the data centre will be Uptime Institute Tier III certified and is expandable when necessary.
In addition to the new Nicaraguan facility, Flexenclosure has already delivered state-of-the-art eCentre data centres to Millicom/Tigo in Paraguay, Colombia and Bolivia, and has two more facilities in the works for Honduras and El Salvador. These are all part of Millicom’s US$68m investment in improving data infrastructure in the Latin American region.
Through its new energy efficient eCentre facilities, Tigo is providing increased data protection measures as well as a range of integrated services such as cloud servers, applications, storage, backup and recovery, colocation, virtual desks, cybersecurity, IoT, big data and analytics and cloud environments – private, public and hybrid.
“We have been inspired by Millicom’s ambitions in the Latin American market and are fully committed to supporting their goals by delivering the most advanced data centre infrastructure,” said David King, CEO, Flexenclosure. “Our eCentre facilities have proven to be the ideal solution for the LATAM market and we look forward to further developing our partnership with Millicom in the coming years.”
