EdgeConneX Officially Opens its Buenos Aires Edge Data Center PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 14 August 2019 08:34


EdgeConneX tells us that its newest facility in Buenos Aires, Argentina, is open and available for customers. As the only carrier-neutral edge data center in Buenos Aires and driven by robust global customer demand, the facility provides cloud, content, network, and other service providers with a high-quality, N+1 data center facility that can scale to 10 MWs, with anticipated investments approaching $US 50 million.  This investment in the Argentine market will support the global expansion plans of both current and prospective EdgeConneX customers aiming to serve the region with a local solution.  As a result, global service providers and local organizations throughout the region will gain access to scalable data capacity with low-latency connectivity, critical content delivery solutions, and advanced cloud services previously unavailable in this region.

Located in Parque Industrial Pilar, one of the largest industrial districts in South America, the newest EdgeConneX data center facilitates interconnection between multiple networks and other service provider customers.  By supporting and providing local connectivity, peering, and internet exchange solutions from leading network providers including Metrotel,  Silica Networks, CenturyLink, and others, the EdgeConneX facility will serve as a key connectivity and technology hub that helps enable the digital transformation initiatives advocated by the Argentine government and draw further investment from global service providers looking for a local carrier-neutral data center.

With strong support and encouragement from the Argentina Investment and Trade Promotion Agency (AAICI) and the Municipality of Pilar, the EdgeConneX Buenos Aires data center was completed in under 8 months. This unprecedented rapid deployment brings into operation a digital technology hub where the world’s leading technology companies and local technology startups can interconnect and grow new digital ecosystems.
