redIT has launched a data center in Tultitlán area of Mexico City, as the IT infrastructure service provider looks to tap into a growing demand for IT services in the Latin American country.
The 95,000-square-foot data center is designed to house eight PODs and will serve mainly government institutions.
redIT said the new facility aims to meet existing demand for data center services in Mexico City.
The data center is located close to a substation of the Federal Electricity Commission.
“Our presence in Phoenix resides at the largest Tier III facility in Arizona. And our expanding core of data centers in Mexico is second to none,” says the company in its website.
With eight data centers located in the Southwestern U.S. and Latin America, redIT is one of very few companies with dedicated international connectivity and modern, modular data center technology. Last year, the company’s client base grew by 16 percent and revenue by 28 percent.
The new facility adds to the list of a growing number of data centers in Mexico. IBM opened the country’s first Smarter Data Center at its Guadalajara Technology Campus in September 2012.
