This is the second facility HostDime has built in Brazil and the first building fully owned by HostDime. HostDime’s continued growth in Brazil and the demand for data center infrastructure services in Brazil drove the need to have this facility built. HostDime also operates data center infrastructure in São Paulo, Brazil.

“First of its kind in Northern Brazil, this facility is strategically located in a converging region of optical fibers with low latency for national and international destinations,” said Filipe Mendes, CEO of HostDime Brazil. “This facility is one of a kind with all the amenities, redundancy, and network availability in Northern Brazil. It was designed to host mission-critical environments for nationals in Brazil and international companies who require their applications to be hosted for better latency in Brazil. Forty percent of the capacity of this new data center has already been allocated and the forecast is to reach maximum occupancy in mid-2018.”
