(The Hosting News) – IT enterprise provider Terremark, whose portfolio includes services such as managed hosting, colocation, and cloud, recently announced that they’ve completed an add-on to their data center in São Paulo, Brazil.
Terremark says the expansion makes the facility one of the largest in the area, giving Terremark an additional fifteen thousand square feet of raised space.
Wireless provider Verizon acquired Terremark earlier this year in April for $1.4 billion dollars.
Commenting on the matter, Hugo Zanon, GM of Verizon Terremark operations in the country, stated, “Our main focus in expanding our São Paulo data center is to provide local customers with a secure, highly available hosting environment for their mission-critical applications.”
“The NAP do Brasil offers our multinational customers a globally connected facility they can leverage as they deploy the IT resources needed to tap the growing Brazilian and Latin American markets,” he continued.
Meanwhile, the facility has the ability to host 1000 thousand servers, a pretty impressive statistic. Terremark already has around fifty data facilities in locations including Dallas, London, Madrid, Amsterdam, and Miami.
Other recent news regarding Terremark includes an expansion of its services, thanks to a new acquisition by Verizon.
Most recently, Verizon acquired cloud enterprise provider CloudSwitch, which the company has already combined with Terremark. Upon the acquisition, Verizon President of the global enterprise unit Bob Toohey stated, “With the acquisition of CloudSwitch, Verizon has taken another step forward in defining the enterprise cloud.” For more information on Terremark’s data center expansion, visit: http://www.terremark.com/about/news/archive/2011/09012011.aspx
