ODATA, an Aligned Data Centers company and provider of data centre services for Latin America, has announced the expansion of its operations in Mexico. Its QR01 data centre, strategically located in Querétaro, will be expanded to meet the growing demand for IT infrastructure and cloud services in the region.

In addition, the company has started to build two new hyperscale data centre campuses in the region – QR02 and QR03 – reinforcing its presence and commitment to the Mexican market.

The expansion of the QR01 data centre is in line with the growing needs of the market, offering state-of-the-art capacity and technology for hyperscale customers. The QR01 campus will handle up to 32MW when fully constructed. 

“We are pleased with the success seen during the development of our QR01 facilities,” said Ricardo Alário, CEO of ODATA. “This expansion of QR01 is illustrative of continued customer interest in the market, our teams’ successful execution, and the longer-term value of data centre development in the Querétaro.”

The QR02 campus is located in the municipality of Guanajuato and will have a capacity of 30MW. The QR03 campus is in the city of El Marqués, located in the centre of the country and 221km from Mexico City. The latter will be the largest data centre campus in Mexico, with an installed capacity of 150MW. Both will be dedicated to hyperscale customers.

“Mexico is currently one of the main markets in Latin America, where ODATA is well established and rooted to sustain its growth. We already have a recognised brand, regional expertise and great credibility with local suppliers, which enables us to grow safely and at an accelerated pace,” said Alário. 

According to research by IDC (International Data Corporation), released in December 2023, IT business growth in Mexico reached 22%, ahead of Brazil with 15%. The study also states that Latin America will see 11% growth in the market in 2024, which demonstrates how Latin American companies have invested in technology to become more productive, innovative and competitive.

“We believe in the country’s potential as a strategic centre for data centre and cloud services in Latin America. Our technical expertise and commitment to innovation position us as ideal partners for companies seeking reliable and advanced solutions for their IT needs,” added Alário. “With this expansion, ODATA reaffirms its role as a leader in the data centre sector in the region, offering high-quality, reliable and secure infrastructure for companies looking to boost their business through technology.”
