Scala Data Centers, a leading hyperscale data center, has launched a new data center in São Paulo, Brazil.
According to BNAmericas, the first phase of SP4 is now operating with 6MW of IT power capacity, and the second phase of SP4 is anticipated to begin operating in September.
In 2021, the Scala began the construction of SP4 and proposed to go live in April 2022. Regarding SP4’s capacity, the 18MW capacity is already 100 percent committed to a single, undisclosed cloud provider. The data center facility spans 140,000sq ft across seven floors.
The SP4 building is located on the same campus where the earlier 21MW SP1 and 13MW SP3 are. In the future, the company plans to launch SP5 and SP6 on the same campus.
Scala’s Co-founder and CEO Marcos Vinícius B. Peigo said, “By adding these developments to our multi-tenant SP1, we have achieved the impressive mark of 90MW fully leased in our Brazilian flagship Tamboré Campus, which makes it by far, just considering its first phase, the largest campus in Latin America and one of the biggest in the world.”
Meanwhile, the five-story SP5 building was proposed to go live before the end of this year; however, it has been postponed to next year. A 10MW facility will power the SP5 building.
Lastly, Scala plans to expand its presence in Chile, Colombia, and Mexico.
