Company behind Latin America’s largest data centre campus to construct record-breaking Mexico facility

Brazilian data centre provider Odata has begun construction on what it claims will be Mexico’s largest data centre.

The facility in Querétaro city will span 30,400m² when constructed with a capacity of 32 MW and room for 4,000 racks. The site is expected to go live in 2022.

Speaking to Latin America business news site BNamericas, Odata’s CEO Ricardo Alário said the company chose Querétaro as it is located in a less seismic region of Mexico and close to important economic centres and fibre optic backbones.

“Querétaro is consolidating itself as an important data centre hub in Mexico and we believe in the enormous potential to be developed in the country, which is the second-largest information technology market in Latin America,” he added.

Dallas-based data centre REIT CyrusOne secured a 10 percent stake in Odata in 2018, and in May last year partnered with the data centre company to construct and launch a 7.8 MW facility in Bogota, Columbia, which became Odata’s second completed facility and first located outside of Brazil.

Odata opened its first data centre in 2017. Located in the state of Sao Paulo, the facility has a capacity of up to 15.6 MW. A second Sau Paulo site is under construction and will be Latin America’s largest data centre site when completed, with a campus spanning 63,000m² and up to 40 MW of IT power provision.

The company, which was founded in 2015 and is majority-owned by Brazilian private equity firm Patria Investments, has plans to develop over 100 MW in the Latin America region.

“Odata is well-positioned to be a truly dominant player on the continent,” commented CEO Ricardo Alário following the construction of the company’s BG01 facility in Bogota.
