Jul 15, 2022 | Posted by Abdul-Rahman Oladimeji

Ascenty has announced the launch of two new facilities in Mexico. It also revealed that it has finished constructing a second data center in Chile. Ascenty first announced its plans for data centers in Mexico in 2020. It has now launched both facilities in Queretaro, Mexico. These will be the company’s first data centers in the country. According to Ascenty, it has invested BRL 1 billion ($185.4m) in developing the facilities.

The Mexico 1 data center spans 215,300 square feet (20,000 square meters) and has a capacity of 21MW. On the other hand, the Mexico 2 data center spans 258,300 square feet (24,000 square meters) and has a capacity of 31MW. The two facilities are currently occupied, with Mexico 1 being 25% occupied and Mexico 2 being 20% occupied. 

The CEO and founder of Ascenty, Chris Torto, said: “Querétaro is financially attractive due to its geographical location: close to the industrial area of Bajío and Mexico City, but with a low risk of natural catastrophes such as earthquakes, hurricanes, or tornadoes; and it has an efficient electrical infrastructure with available power supply for the data centers.” 

He continued by saying: “In addition to these two centers opening in Mexico, we will consolidate our leadership in Latin America with the opening of our second unit in Chile, later this year, as well as assessing our entry into other markets in the region, such as Colombia and Peru.” According to reports, Ascenty has also acquired land to develop its third facility in Mexico.
