ODATA, an Aligned Data Centres company, a provider of data centre services for Latin America, announces the launch of DC ST02, its second hyperscale data centre located in San Bernardo, Chile – a city just outside of Santiago. The new data centre represents an important milestone in the Company’s strategic regional development, expanding its total IT capacity in Chile to approximately 80MW and reaffirming its position as a data centre leader in LATAM.
DC ST02 offers up to 40.6 MW of IT load capacity and stands at approximately 366,000 square feet. To maximum availability for end-users, the site has received top-of-the-range equipment from global suppliers as well as the highest quality construction available in the region managed by an experienced ODATA team.
“One notable point in the construction of our second data centre in the country was our nimbleness and agility in adapting to Chilean regulations to ensure that the site complies with all legal requirements without affecting the agreed delivery time,” commented Ricardo Alário, ODATA’s LATAM CEO. “We have effectively navigated diverse environments with varying building and zoning legislation and often, high complexity. ODATA has been successful in delivering all our projects in Latin America precisely because we understand each region and its peculiarities, always striving to maintain quality, agility, and security for our customers.”
DC ST02 boasts a dedicated on-site substation and 60MVA of utility power supplied by dual feeds to the data centre. With high reliability and redundant electrical power, the data centre ensures the continuity of mission-critical customer operations.
