Terremark, Verizon's (NYSE: VZ) data center and cloud services unit, has added more bandwidth to target new Latin American growth by completing the expansion of its Bogota, Colombia data center.
Opened in 2008, the service provider doubled the size of the data center from 5,000 to almost 10,000 square feet.
Latin America is a major market target for Terremark. The service provider via its NAP of the Americas-Colombia and NAP of Brazil offers over 50,000 square feet to existing and potentially new customers located in the region. Last September, the service provider completed the expansion of its São Paulo, Brazil data center.
Nelson Fonseca, president of Terremark, said that "In the last six months, Terremark has completed the expansion of four strategically-located data centers, two of them in Latin America."
This data center expansion is part of a broader strategy to deliver IT services through its growing network of almost 50 data centers located in key markets like the U.S., Asia Pacific, and Europe.
Besides Latin America, Terremark also made significant data center expansions in both the United States and Europe. In the U.S. it expanded its Network Access Point West in Santa Clara, Calif. to 100,000 square feet, and it opened a NAP in Amsterdam.
