Internet infrastructure specialist Flexenclosure has secured an order for two new data centres in Latin America. The facilities will be deployed in Chile and Ecuador, expanding Flexenclosure’s footprint in the continent and further consolidating its position as a major global data centre provider.
This multi-million dollar order is the latest in a number of ongoing eCentre deployments by Flexenclosure in Latin America, amongst them an award-winning Tier 3 data centre installation for Tigo Business in Paraguay and a newly completed Tier 3 data centre for TigoUne in Colombia.
The two new eCentres will be used to provide colocation services, optic fibre carrier services and hosting services. The first phase of the projects will deliver single-story 300KW data centres, but the turnkey buildings have been designed for vertical expansion up to two floors, providing additional white space for more than 100 racks on each floor.
“We are delighted to have won these projects and to be expanding our footprint in Latin America”, said David King, CEO, Flexenclosure. “eCentre is not only the solution of choice for facilities where rapid deployment is critical, it also delivers almost unlimited configuration flexibility and future growth potential.”
eCentre is a state-of-the art, custom-designed, prefabricated and pre-integrated data centre building that is fast to deploy, energy efficient and fully future proofed. With its flexible and easily expandable white space, eCentre enables highly capital efficient data centre deployments and has been certified up to Tier IV level.
Construction of the two data centres will shortly commence at Flexenclosure’s factory in Vara, Sweden, and both facilities are slated to be deployed in Latin America in the first half of next year.
