HostDime breaks ground on 65,000 sqf data centre in Colombia
The company has been operating in Colombia since 2008 servicing a range of Colombia-based data centre infrastructure products and services from a local partner’s data centre.
HostDime broke ground last week on its latest data centre facility in Bogotá, Colombia. The company is the owner and developer of the new data centre.
In 2017, HostDime announced that they purchased the land on which the building is now being constructed, and the facility is located in an enclosed industrial park in Tocancipá, North Bogotá.
The 65,000 sqf building will house HostDime Colombia’s data centre operations team, network engineers, build team, system administrators, and system engineers.
Other non-technical teams will remain at the current HostDime Colombia office in central Bogotá, according to the company.
