Cloud Carib is accelerating efforts to capture more market share in data center solutions in the Caribbean, with the company revealing plans to open five data centers by the end of this year.
The Bahamian firm will soon inaugurate a rebuilt data center in Panama and then start building more in Jamaica and Barbados, as well as setting up data storage facilities in Trinidad and Cayman Islands.
Today, it has two data centers, one each on the islands of Nassau and Freeport in the Bahamas, with most of its revenue coming from telecom and financial services firms.
More data centers mean that clients can “choose a location that suits their needs,” say company officials.
“We’re helping clients design a solution for them, not providing cookie cutter solutions and forcing them to work within those constraints,” said Scott MacKenzie, Chief Commercial Officer at Cloud Carib.
Founded in 2011, Carib counts Cisco, Juniper, VMware, Citrix, Netapp, and Brocade among its partners.
Cable Bahamas, one of the main wireless carriers in the country, is said to be heavily reliant on Carib’s data center to provide broadband access to its customers.
Carib’s reputation, as well as the number of clients, grew substantially last year when its data center successfully withstood Hurricane Matthew, protecting clients against the potential service outage and data loss.
