Ascenty enables migration of Voiter infrastructure to the cloud in record time￼
Business bank expands strategic partnership with Ascenty by contracting colocation for data center, internet and connectivity infrastructure
Ascenty, the leading colocation company in Latin America, with 28 data centers in Brazil, Chile and Mexico – 22 in operation and six under construction, was chosen as a strategic partner by Voiter, a business bank that brings together technology, credit and capital markets to offer consultative integrated financial solutions and services to customers from across every sector.
To improve the security and technological resources of its solutions and services, the business bank migrated its infrastructure to Ascenty, which became the main internet and connectivity provider for leading cloud companies.
“We migrated our entire infrastructure to the cloud in 9 months. We did it gradually and in a planned manner, integrating all of the bank’s business areas in a single weekend. In addition, we decommissioned legacy connectivity to a new, more robust infrastructure and completed the disaster recovery plan, increasing transactional capacity across our operations with scalable cloud infrastructure. Today Voiter is part of the 18% of the world’s banks that operate fully in the cloud, according to S&P Global,” said Eduardo Kimura, Voiter’s CIO and Digital Transformation Director.
“Initially, we sought Ascenty to be only the Disaster Recovery connectivity provider, but during the process we identified opportunities for service synergy, with higher quality and robustness. Today, Ascenty has become our main connectivity and infrastructure provider, offering all the redundancy of connectivity between the data centers and the clouds,” said Kimura.
For Ascenty’s Sales Director Vinícius Minetto, becoming Voiter’s main infrastructure partner is another endorsement of excellent service, with flexibility and competitive prices. “We offer a digital ecosystem with global span that works as a gear to leverage partner business, with a special focus on flexibility and efficiency in services, and full availability to our customers,” Minetto added.
Ascenty, a Digital Realty and Brookfield company, is the largest connectivity and data center service provider in Latin America, currently managing 28 data centers in operation and/or construction in Brazil, Chile and Mexico, interconnected by 5,000 km of proprietary fiber-optic network. The company was established in 2010 and builds and operates world-class data centers serving the world’s largest cloud and technology providers, as well as other customers in the finance, retail, industrial, healthcare and service industries. To support its expansion, Ascenty relies on its shareholders – Brookfield Infrastructure Partners, a Canadian asset management company, and Digital Realty, the world’s largest data center company, with 290 units located in North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Australia.
