A Stonepeak-owned company has announced its plans to expand its data center capacity by 6MW across Chile, Brazil and Peru.
Cirion, a Latin American digital infrastructure firm, intends to establish three new data centers in the region.
The company unveiled its intentions to construct a data center in the Quilicura region of Santiago, Chile, another in the Macropolis industrial district of Lurin, Lima, Peru and a new facility in Cotia, São Paulo, Brazil. In total, these three sites will offer a combined capacity exceeding 6MW.
In August of last year, the company initially revealed its acquisition of a 25,000 sqm (269,100 sq ft) space in Santiago for the purpose of developing a second data center.
“We believe in the development of the economies of the region, supporting digital business models,” said Facundo Castro, CEO of Cirion Technologies.
“As Latin America’s leading digital infrastructure and technology provider, we are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality services and technologies and these expansions reflect Cirion´s continued commitment to providing our customers with the most comprehensive suite of solutions to support their Digital Transformation across the region.”
During 2022, Cirion reported a growth of approximately 12% in the installed capacity of its data center facilities located in São Paulo (Brazil), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Quito (Ecuador), Cali (Colombia) and Lima (Peru).
Additionally, Cirion has announced its intention to augment its submarine cable capacity by 23Tbps, resulting in a total subsea capacity of 132Tbps.
Cirion was established last year when Stonepeak acquired Lumen Technologies’ Latin American operations.
The company currently operates over 17 data centers across Latin America, including locations in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, Colombia and Chile. These data centers collectively provide a capacity of approximately 40MW.
Additionally, Cirion possesses numerous land stations and an extensive fibre network spanning thousands of kilometres.Click below to share this article
