Globenet Barranquilla: Globenet starts work on second data center in Barranquilla

Sep 21, 2021 | Posted by Eric Bell

Just two weeks after announcing its new Edge data center in Fortaleza, Brazil, Globenet has announced the construction of a new Edge data center in Barranquilla, as it continues to expand to meet demand. By the end of 2022, the company plans to have a total of five Edge data center locations in Latin America.

Globenet's CEO Eduardo Falzoni explained that the company chose Barranquilla because it is a strategic interconnection in South America for operators, ISPs, OTTs and local and international content delivery networks or CDNs.

He outlined: "In fact, Globenet's own network provides direct, low-latency submarine routes to Brazil and the United States from Barranquilla, as well as a direct route to Bogotá via our redundant land link."

The facility is expected to come online by the third quarter of 2022. According to Globenet, it will also quadruple the number of racks and power currently available at its existing data center in the area.

Fabio Laguado, CCO of Globenet, added: "After a successful experience with our first data center in Barranquilla, this new Edge data center will enable further scale growth for Colombia's digital economy, reinforcing our commitment to provide the most advanced data center and connectivity solutions for users and companies in the region."
