Cirion, a leading digital infrastructure and technology provider, has announced the construction of a new 20-megawatt carrier-neutral data center facility in Santiago, Chile, named SAN2.
Cirion is backed by Stonepeak, a leading alternative investment firm specializing in infrastructure and assets with more than US$57 billion in assets under management and an extensive portfolio of communications and digital infrastructure investments globally.
SAN2 is an expansion of the existing Ciron Latin America data center footprint and it will be well-equipped to meet the needs of hyperscale cloud service providers, carriers, content providers and enterprises that require scalable infrastructure. It is expected to be completed by early 2025 and will comprise 23,000 square meters of land in the industrial district of Quilicura.
The new data center is strategically near and will be directly connected with Cirion’s existing ecosystem-dense data center in Santiago, located 2.5 kilometers away. It will have access to a business-friendly environment and renewable energy, with four independent metro fiber route entrances to the building, long-haul connectivity to major cities and tech hubs and it is close to international subsea cable networks to facilitate minimal latency between Latin America and other regions.
SAN2 is well-positioned to be a critical hub for local businesses and beyond.
The data center will also enable businesses to build and scale their operations in a facility that aligns with Latin American sustainability goals and with the Environmental, Social and Governance strategy and commitment to technological innovation of Cirion.
SAN2 will have a market-leading Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE), consuming minimal energy, water and natural resources to reduce its overall environmental impact.
These standards also applied to the new 20 MW data center facility of Cirion, announced in Lurín, Peru.
Facundo Castro, CEO, Cirion Technologies, said: “The development of this new data center in Santiago represents another important step in our journey to grow our platform of low latency, interconnected data centers and establish a growing digital ecosystem across Latin America.”
Castro said: “This new facility in Santiago reflects a continued commitment to investing and providing our customers with the most comprehensive suite of data center solutions to support their Digital Transformation across the region.”
SAN2 will be part of Cirion’s larger carrier-neutral platform, which consists of 18 owned data centers around Latin America. Customers can connect directly to more than 90 carriers and public cloud providers in the area using peer-to-peer networking through Cirion’s data centers, enabling scalable colocation, cross-connectivity and Disaster Recovery capabilities.Click below to share this article
