Equinix Opens Second Rio de Janeiro Data Center

Equinix opened a second International Business Exchange (IBX) data center in Rio de Janeiro under its subsidiary, ALOG Data Centers of Brazil S.A.

RJ2 its a Tier III data center with a current capacity for 320 cabinets.  Equinix plans to invest an additional $36 million in the next two phases of construction, which will increase capacity to 1,170 cabinets.

Equinix noted that over the last four years it has lined up all the major subsea cable operators including Level 3 and Telefonica, and telecommunications companies serving Brazil. Now these customers are poised to deliver a seamless stream of global data traffic in and out of the country.

In May, Equinix announced GlobeNet's expansion into its Miami data center (MI3) which opened the fastest IP traffic route from the United States to Brazil. MI3 offers a number of benefits to customers, including direct connectivity to the leading Latin American network operators for reduced latency, and close proximity for serving Latin American markets while maintaining infrastructure within the U.S.
