GLOBENET ANNOUNCES THE CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW NEXT-GEN EDGE DATA CENTRE
PRESS RELEASE: Globenet, a wholesale provider in the Latin American market of telecommunications services and Edge data centres, announces the construction of a new Edge data centre in Barranquilla to expand its current infrastructure and respond to the growing demand for colocation and connectivity services.
The announcement of this new data centre in Colombia comes two weeks after GlobeNet announced the construction of another new Edge data centre in Fortaleza, Brazil, which is expected to be ready by the third quarter of 2022. With a projected total of five Edge data centre locations in Latin America by the end of 2022, GlobeNet continues to strengthen its position in the Edge data centre market, while maintaining its principle of neutrality and focus on the wholesale business.
The new next-generation Edge data centre, integrated with Globenet's ecosystem of content providers, service providers, and IXs, as well as Globenet's low-latency subsea network and redundant terrestrial links, will help bring customers closer to the content with optimal performance.
“We decided to build our second Edge data centre in Barranquilla because it is a strategic interconnection point in South America for Operators, ISPs, OTTs and local and international content delivery networks or CDNs. In fact, Globenet's own network provides direct, low-latency submarine routes to Brazil and the United States from Barranquilla, as well as a direct route to Bogotá via our redundant land link” said Eduardo Falzoni, CEO of Globenet.”
“After a successful experience with our first data centre in Barranquilla, this new Edge data centre will enable further scale growth for Colombia's digital economy, reinforcing our commitment to provide the most advanced data centre and connectivity solutions for users and companies in the region” added Fabio Laguado, CCO of Globenet.
This new data centre is expected to come into operation in the third quarter of 2022 and will quadruple the number of racks and power currently available in Globenet's existing data centre in Barranquilla, allowing for customized and flexible solutions in a neutral environment for local and international operators, OTTs, ISPs and CDNs.
