At Febraban Tech, Ascenty announces start-up of its 24th data center and purchase of land in São Paulo for expansion￼
In its debut participation in the main banking technology event, Ascenty reveals investments for the financial sector, an area that has grown 50% in customers over the past two years
Ascenty, a leading company in the Latin American data center market with 34 units in Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Colombia, participates for the first time in Febraban Tech, the main event for technology and innovation in the financial sector, with announcements of investments focused on finance clients.
During the fair, which takes place from June 27 to 29, 2023, at the Transamerica Expo Center, in São Paulo, Ascenty will host a Coffee Lounge next to Fintech Arena, to announce the start-up of the fourth data center at its Osasco (SP) campus and the purchase of land measuring 47,430.46 m² in the same region.
The new data center – São Paulo 4 – comes online with 5.5 MW of a total capacity of 9 MW where the company has a total of six infrastructures, four in operation and two under construction. In the new area, equivalent to just over four soccer fields, new units will be built, with construction set to begin and investment values currently in the planning phase.
This expansion is in line with the strategy of expanding the portfolio to the enterprise market, which includes the technology, telecom, finance, retail, agribusiness and health segments. Ascenty’s participation in Febraban Tech aims to expand contracts with the financial sector, which registered a 50% growth in the number of customers over the past two years.
“Our goal is to expand our operation and meet the growing demand for world-class data centers and excellent connectivity in the São Paulo region, especially for banks, investment funds, fintechs, and payment companies,” reveals Marcos Siqueira, Vice President of Operations at Ascenty. “Four of the five largest banks in Brazil already work with Ascenty, whether in colocation or connectivity, and the financial sector is among the three fastest growing in the company”, he adds.
The acquired land in Osasco is one of the last areas with high energy availability in Greater São Paulo, an essential condition for the operation of large data centers. In addition, the location houses the Network Access Point (NAP), has direct access to the PIX in São Paulo and Campinas and is also interconnected to the submarine cable station in Praia Grande (SP), through the 5,000 km of Ascenty’s proprietary optical fiber network.
Another market differential of Ascenty is that all its units are classified as Tier 3, which certify the data centers with the highest market availability. Additionally, it is the only Latin American data center company that is a signatory of the UN Global Compact, with over 200 certifications for excellence in environmental management and corporate social responsibility. The company has also been in the zone of excellence in customer service according to the Net Promoter Score for the past five years.
