GlobeNet, a telecommunications and edge data center services provider, has announced the buildout of a new edge data center in Barranquilla, Colombia, to expand its current infrastructure and address increased demand for colocation and connectivity services.
The announcement of this new data center in Colombia comes two weeks after GlobeNet announced the construction of another data center in Fortaleza, Brazil, expected to be ready by Q3 2022.
GlobeNet projects a total of five data center locations in Latin America by the end of 2022, as it seeks to strengthen its positioning in the edge data center market while maintaining its focus on the wholesale business.
GlobeNet says its new data center integrates with its ecosystem of content providers, service providers and IXs, as well as the company’s submarine network and redundant terrestrial backhauls.
Eduardo Falzoni, CEO, GlobeNet, said: “We decided to build our second edge data center in Barranquilla because it is a strategic interconnection point in South America for local and international Carriers, ISPs, OTTs and 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 Bogota through our redundant terrestrial backhaul.”Click below to share this article
