Data CentresTop Stories

HostDime, a pioneer in global edge data center infrastructure, has released its design plans for its newest next-generation, purpose-built Tier IV data center facility in Guadalajara, Mexico, which will start construction in Q1 2023. HostDime is the owner, developer and operator of this new data center facility, nicknamed ‘Andromeda’.

In July 2022, HostDime announced that it purchased the three-acre land parcel in the Guadalajara, Mexico metro area. This is HostDime’s second carrier-neutral Guadalajara data center, with its current 20,000-square-foot facility currently at 80% capacity.

Tier IV is the highest-class certification a data center can receive, and this data center facility design will follow HostDime’s Tier IV Data Center portfolio platform design standards, a rarity in the country. Certified by the Uptime Institute, it will only be the second Tier IV public data center in Mexico. Tier IV is the highest-class certification a data center can receive. 

Often referred to as the four-nine’s, Tier IV data centers have 99.99% availability and often achieve 100% uptime due to their highly redundant power infrastructure. The facility will also incorporate ICREA V standards and thus will also be ICREA V certified by ICREA (International Computer Room Experts Association).

The new facility follows the iconic HostDime contemporary style of all the facilities it designs and builds. This style is a combination of the distinguished HostDime next-gen data center design, purpose-built highly redundant Tier IV power infrastructure and client-centric colocation amenities.

The data center facility will be 100,000 sq. feet in total size with 3MW of critical IT load capacity. The facility will feature three floors of data center space; data halls for private data center suites; colocation cage space; private lockable colocation racks; diverse MMR carrier rooms for interconnection and a specific data hall for hybrid cloud workload use cases.

The design of this new facility also incorporates additional vertical office floors on the front part of the data center. These office floors will accommodate the local demand HostDime Mexico is seeing from potential clients who want to be tenants in the data center and office tenants. These office floors are not the typical office build-out, as they will inherit the highly redundant power infrastructure being implemented in the data center. So this will accommodate unique use cases by companies who seek specialized technology office space while also being tenants of the data center.

“We are very excited to release the design of HostDime’s new data center in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, in the cradle of innovation, ‘The Silicon Valley of Mexico’,” said Eduardo Basulto Jiménez, CEO of HostDime México. “Guadalajara has innovative technology roots and being the second largest metropolitan city in Mexico, we know this new data center facility will properly serve the surrounding market.”

HostDime’s mission is to design, build and operate purpose-built, next-gen, public data center facilities in emerging markets around the globe. It offers an array of cloud-native infrastructure products and services including physical bare-metal servers, cloud servers (both private and public), colocation (cages and racks) and Hardware-as-a-Service in all global edge data center locations.
