Equinix SP2 is a Tier III data center is located in the Sao Paulo suburb of Tambore. SP2 is the first data center in Brazil to use external cold air to cool the data center environment. Whenever the external temperature is lower than 62.6 degrees F, this "indirect cooling" technology pumps outside air to lower the temperature of the cooling liquid, which is used to cool the data center. Designed with sustainability in mind, SP2's water consumption will be reduced by 70% and power consumption by 10%.
SP2 is home to two popular online services in Brazil: Apontador, a search engine visited every day by one in five Brazilians, and Maplink, an API geo-localization platform. Both are owned by Local LBS Group.
Highwinds, a Florida-based content delivery network owned by Stackpath, chose to collocate in SP2 to establish a redundancy point for its Latin American customers who depend on high availability for its content distribution, storage, analytics and cloud-based IP services.
