To better serve the growing demands of our customers and continue to migrate workloads to hybrid cloud solutions, Cirion announced the expansion of its fiber network and data center capabilities across Latin America.
The expansions include new data centers and network infrastructure, with the addition of several new data centers across Latin America which will be interconnected with Cirion´s existing data centers, providing customers with increased redundancy and disaster recovery capabilities.
“We believe in the development of the economies of the region, supporting digital business models,” said Facundo Castro, CEO of Cirion Technologies. “As Latin America’s leading digital infrastructure and technology provider, we are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality services and technologies and these expansions reflect Cirion´s continued commitment to providing our customers with the most comprehensive suite of solutions to support their digital transformation across the region.”
During 2022, Cirion data centers facilities in São Paulo (Brazil), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Quito (Ecuador), Cali (Colombia) and Lima (Peru) had approximately a 12% increase in installed capacity. In 2023, the expansion plans continue with the construction of a new data center facility in the Quilicura region in Santiago (Chile), another one in the industrial district of Macropolis in Lurin (Perú) and a new building in Cotia, São Paulo, in addition to the expansion of the installed capacity of the data center in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). Together, they will increase more than 6 MW of capacity in 2023.
Cirion data centers are implementing new monitoring infrastructure, control and management services while offering customers additional space for housing servers, networking devices and other computing equipment.
Furthermore, to ensure the highest level of quality and compliance with rigorous international standards, regional data centers successfully completed 3 new certification processes and received 47 recertifications throughout 2022.
In 2023, Cirion is also launching its new Bare Metal Cloud solution, service that offers automated computational capacity, located close to large commercial centers, so that companies’ solutions enjoy very low latency. With Bare Metal Cloud, Cirion brings greater cloud agility to computing infrastructure through an innovative “as a service” capability. This technology will initially be available to Cirion customers throughout Brazil with computing needs in São Paulo as of March, and the northeast region, as of April. And throughout the year, it will be available in the other countries of the region.
Regarding connectivity, Cirion has expanded its Latin America fiber network by deploying 1,187 kilometers of optical fiber, added 74 Tb/s of capacity to terrestrial optical networks, and added peering capacity, allowing more than 27 Tb/s exchanges with other providers. In 2023, they will also increase their submarine capacity by more than 23Tb in the different segments of the submarine cables, bringing the submarine network to a total capacity of 132 TB.
Additionally, the company recently announced it is investing in a high bandwidth Ethernet architecture to enhance experiences on its platform and deliver updated Ethernet services to more than 14 major Latin American cities, and the expansion of its secure SD-WAN Managed Service, delivering organizations with networks and security in a single, high-value-added converging solution.
“Our customers need faster, more accessible bandwidth to support technologies such as Internet of Things, augmented reality, voice and video apps, particularly in those industries where latency is critical, such as entertainment, content creation, e-commerce, and public cloud service providers,” said Leonardo Barbero, President of Products and Enterprise Sales for Cirion Technologies. “Our top goal is to stay on top of new network demands and continuously deliver robust, high-quality services across our network and data center infrastructure. As demand increases, becomes more complex or changes, our platform will adapt to ensure we’re offering the best digital experience possible.”
