Ascenty, a leading provider of data centre services in Latin America, has announced the opening of its fifth data centre at its Hortolândia complex, in the interior of the São Paulo State.
The company also has a sixth data centre under construction at the site, scheduled to begin operations in 2023.
Investment for the installation has totalled BRL 350 million so far and is expected to reach BRL 920 million by the end of the final phase. Hortolândia 5 has already opened with 20% of the data processing centres occupied by clients, with plans to reach 60% by the end of 2023.
Ascenty now has 28 data centres in Brazil, Chile and Mexico – 23 currently operating and six under construction. With the new addition, the Hortolândia campus will see its power expanded by 134%, going from 23MW to 54MW of energy capacity.
“Next year, we will finish construction for the sixth site of the complex, which broke ground in 2015. Hortolândia is a growing industrial and technological hub. Investing in the town is part of our growth strategy and will allow us to meet strong demand for digital services from local businesses,” said Marcos Siqueira, VP of Operations, Ascenty.Click below to share this article
