Hosting Company Maxihost Extends Brazil Data Center Footprint with Scala

Scala Data Centers, a hyperscalable data center platform with sustainable operations developed by DigitalBridge has signed a strategic agreement with Maxihost, a worldwide provider of bare metal cloud services. Maxihost’s new MH2 data center, its second facility in this area, will be deployed at Scala’s SP2 facility, located in the city of São Paulo, Brazil.

Maxihost’s bare metal cloud platform combines dedicated servers, high-end CPUs, and software-based automation to offer quick deployment, high performance, secured seamless experiences, and ease of maintenance. Maxihost has chosen Scala Data Centers to expand the capacity of its MH1 São Paulo facility.

The deal ensures the availability of renewable and verified energy, supported by renewable energy certificates (RECs) granted by The International REC Standard Foundation, to enable future Maxihost expansion within the Scala data center environment.

Maxihost supports clients in a variety of industries, including gaming, CDNs, VPNs, communication, streaming, and integrators, all of which would demand fast processing, low latency, and agility.

“Our MH1 facility is reaching capacity and we needed to ensure an infrastructure that could keep up with our rapidly expanding growth rate,” said Guilherme Soubihe Alberto, CEO at Maxihost. Thus, the partnership with Scala provides us with an environment of exceptional scalability, reliability, quality, and security, ensuring the continuity of our business in the long term.”

“We enable a robust data center platform that guarantees the necessary infrastructure customization, in line with a long-term commitment to delivering connectivity, security, and power,” said Cleber Braz, Vice President of Business Development & Customer Services, Scala Data Centers.

Organizations using Scala for cloud, edge, and other latency-sensitive applications now have direct access to Maxihost’s dedicated hardware and bare metal capabilities, as the effort establishes Maxihost as Scala’s bare metal partner.

“We enable a robust data center platform that guarantees the necessary infrastructure customization, in line with a long-term commitment to delivering connectivity, security, and power,” said Cleber Braz, Vice President of Business Development & Customer Services, Scala Data Centers. “It will enable Maxihost to correctly size its upcoming increased capacity requirements.”

The new MH2 data center from Maxihost in Scala’s SP2 facility in São Paulo will have an initial power capacity of 2MW. A high-speed optical fiber ring will be built to connect MH2 to Maxihost’s current MH1 facility (which is just 6 kilometers away), assuring low latency communication between the two locations and providing clients with site redundancy. Clients at both locations will be able to benefit from the fiber backbone in terms of reliability and performance.
