America Movil plans cloud data center for Brazil
Telecommunications America Movil (AMX) has been investing heavily in Latin America this year, with a new data center in Chile, fiber-optic investments in Argentina and now a new data center it plans to build in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
According to BNAmericas.com, AMX’s COO Oscar Von Hauske told investors during a conference call that the data center will open next month, and will be focussed on value-added services delivered through the Cloud.
He did not release details regarding the size of the facility, or whether it would be a standalone building or collocated with another operator.
In February this year, America Movil said it was pushing its traditional services out to a cloud usage model.
Back then, it invested US$15m into its cloud technology and infrastructure. It also committed to investing US$249m for cell sites and fiber-optic connections across Argentina by the end of the year on the back of a US$15m upgrade to its Claro data center in Chile, which focuses on its mobile phone operations.
This US$110m 27,000 sq ft facility near Santiago will be linked to the company’s regional network. Once complete, the company said it will make it one of the largest service providers in the region.
