The new installation is considered with a new NAP (Network Access Point) from Brazil, according to the company.

Ascenty has announced the start of its operations for the company’s third data centre in São Paulo, Brazil.

The infrastructure has an investment of R$150 million spanning 3,000 sqm of built area and 4 MW of energy. The company is yet to release further information regarding the operations.

Ascenty will have 16 data centres in operation in Brazil by the end of the year, and now has 17 data centres in operation and construction, interconnected by 4,500 km of proprietary fibre optic network.

This expansion consolidates the company’s leading position in the region. With these two new additions, Ascenty will have a total of 22 data centres across three countries, further expanding its ability to meet the needs of national and multinational clients.

Based in the state of Queretaro, the two new data centres is set to go live in 2021. Each unit covers an area of 24,000 sqm and has a load capacity of 30 MVA. Total investments to build both units amount to R$300 million.

“Mexico is a promising region for Ascenty’s expansion, and our strategy is always to assess the possibility of building new data centres based on demands that justifies such investment,” said Chris Torto, Ascenty’s CEO.

“The facilities in Mexico as well as Chile generate new business opportunities and further expand our reach, consolidating the position of Ascenty and Digital Realty as global leaders in Colocation infrastructure.”

Ascenty also has an interconnection ecosystem that features 4,500 kilometres of dedicated fibre-optic network, connecting all of the data centres in operation with cloud providers and cable landing stations in Brazil.
