Nabiax, the multinational Colocation and Hosting company, has started a 900 KW expansion in its Paine Data Center (Chile), adding 2 new IT Rooms in the infrastructure, which will be built by Vertiv, the global provider of continuity solutions and digital critical infrastructure. This growth will make Paine Data Center to reach 2 MW of IT Power.
Nabiax, which has presence in Spain, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, and USA, has invested above 4 million USD to carry out this growth, destined to host cloud nodes from hyperscalers in Chile. The project has been executed with top of the class partners, with which Nabiax has developed similar projects in other geographies.
With this milestone, the company has strengthened its commitment towards Latin America and, more specifically, towards Chile, where Nabiax will implement an ambitious investment plan for the growth of the upcoming years. “Latin America is a region with a great growth perspective for Colocation and Cloud services”, says Gonzalo Atán, Country Manager for Nabiax in Chile. “We trust in Chile as one of the main Digital Hubs in the Americas and, thus, we will firmly bet to keep growing in the country, by offering the best Data Center services to our clients”, the executive highlighted.
Atán also commented on the resilience of the Data Center industry which, in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic has continued its path of growth and capturing new capacity demands. According to the Country Manager, the Data Centers have shown their priority status as critical infrastructures in the expansion of the digital economy, after being brought under greater pressure caused by a greater demand of Home Office, education, or online entertainment demand.
Respecting this, Atán stated: “Our infrastructures have passed this test successfully, backing up the quality of our services. We must praise the labor of every member of our operations team, whose work has kept the highest quality standards and the operational continuity demanded by our clients”.
Similarly, Daniel De Vinatea, General Manager Southern South America (SSA) at Vertiv, has highlighted the relevance of becoming a strategic partner for Nabiax in the coming expansion of its Chilean Data Centers, foretelling the more relevant role these infrastructures will have in the future, after the development of 5G networks: “As ‘Architects of continuity’, Vertiv has offered its full support to Nabiax, making available the latest solutions and tools, as well as the best experts to face the new demands and challenges that will come to Chile”.
