KIO expands Latin America footprint with first Colombian acquisition

KIO, I Squared Capital’s data centre and digital infrastructure platform for Latin America, has announced the signing of an agreement for the acquisition of a new data centre Campus in Colombia.

With the new KIO BOG1, located in Bogota, Colombia becomes KIO’s sixth country of operations, fifth in the Americas and first in South America.

The facility has 5,000 sqm of construction and two data halls with more than 2,000 sqm of white space and a power capacity of 6 MW for colocation services. The project has additional land to build a second data centre with similar characteristics, resulting in a potential capacity of up to 12 MW for the campus. This data centre campus has a high availability design and construction, certified by the Uptime Institute at TIER III level.

“For KIO it is highly strategic to continue expanding in LATAM and we have chosen Colombia because we are convinced of the economic potential and the growing demand for our services in this great country. We are working very well with our investment partners, I Squared Capital, in the execution of our expansion plans,” said Santiago Suinaga, KIO Data centres CEO.

The new facility, KIO BOG1, is located in one of most interconnected industrial complexes in the country with more than 14 network operators.
