GlobeNet is set to construct a new data centre in Fortaleza, Brazil. The new facility is due to come online in Q3 2022 and will triple the number of racks and power currently available in GlobeNet’s existing data centre in Fortaleza, which opened in 2018.
Owned by BTG Pactual Infrastructure Fund II, GlobeNet is a wholesale telecom operator that owns a number of submarine cables in Latin America as well as Cable Landing Stations in Brazil, Colombia, and the US in New Jersey and Florida.
The company has said the new facility will serve both local and international operators as well as over-the-top companies (OTTs), regional providers, and content distribution networks (CDNs).
“This new data centre will contribute to expanding Brazil’s digital economy and is a testament to our commitment to providing advanced connectivity and data centre solutions for people and businesses in the region,” Fabio Laguado, CCO of Globenet, said.
Earlier this year BTG acquired a 57 per cent equity interest held by Oi SA in its the company’s fibre-optic infrastructure assets unit, now known as V.tal, and planned to merge the company with GlobeNet.
