Apr 07, 2022 | Posted by MadalineDunn

Arsat has announced that it is investing $70 million to build a new HQ located at the Bariloche Technological Industrial Productive Park (PITBA). Alongside this announcement, the government-owned communications firm also said it will be developing a backup data center in Bariloche in the Patagonia region. This data center will supplement its facility at the Benavídez Earth Station on the 12,000 sqm (129,100 sq ft) site.

Speaking about this development, Arsat president, Matías Tombolini, said: "The data center that we will install in Bariloche is the first of several that we will build in various parts of Argentina.” 

He added: “This has to do with federalizing content management and being able to bring resources closer to regional economies, within the framework of an increasingly digitalized economy.”
