Investment for the installation has totaled BRL 350 million so far, and is expected to reach BRL 920 million by the end of the final phase. Hortolândia 5 has already opened with 20% of the data processing centers occupied by clients, with plans to reach 60% by the end of 2023.
Ascenty now has 28 data centers in Brazil, Chile and Mexico – 23 currently operating and six under construction. With the new addition, the Hortolândia campus will see its power expanded by 134%, going from 23MW to 54MW of energy capacity.
