Latin American telecommunications provider America Movil has commenced work on its largest data center yet for the region, a US$110m 27,000 sq m facility near Santiago, Chile.

The company already has more than 11 technology centers in Latin America and the Claro data center will be linked into America’s Movil’s extensive regional network.

Claro Chile director of enterprise markets Sergio Morales said the data center will feature the latest infrastructure and will adhere to the latest safety rules and redundancy for power and security, with Chile being known as a zone of high seismic activity.

A redundant energy supply, including two joint power feeds of 12MVA, will allow for 96 hours of emergency energy. These systems will be heavily monitored, with energy management systems and environmental control also being added to the build.

The network will also be built in a redundant manner, with multiple independent routes of access and redundancy also added inside of the data center for communications.

It is being built on a plot covering 70,000 sq m to a Tier IV standard, and will eventually be certified by the Uptime institute.

The new Claro data center will make America Movil one of the leading technology providers in Chile, once it is complete next year, according to the company.

America Movil plans to bring the data center online in phases, with the first instalment, representing 25% of the build, coming online by the end of next year.

  • Do Industry Standards Hold Back Data Centre Innovation?

    Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:00:00

    Upgrading legacy data centres to handle ever-increasing social media, mobile, big data and Cloud workloads requires significant investment. Yet over 70% of managers are being asked to deliver future-ready infrastructure with reduced budgets. But what if you could square the circle: optimise your centre’s design beyond industry standards by incorporating the latest innovations, while achieving a significant increase in efficiency and still maintaining the required availability?

  • The CFD Myth – Why There Are No Real-Time Computational Fluid Dynamics?

    Wed, 20 May 2015 14:00:00

    The rise of processing power and steady development of supercomputers have allowed Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to grow out of all recognition. But how has this affected the Data Center market – particularly in respect to cooling systems? The ideal DCIM system offers CFD capability as part of its core solution (rather than as an external application), fed by real-time monitoring information to allow for continuous improvements and validation of your cooling strategy and air handling choices. Join DCIM expert Philippe Heim and leading heat transfer authority Remi Duquette for this free webinar, as they discuss: •Benefits of a single data model for asset management •Challenges of real-time monitoring •Some of the issues in CFD simulation, and possible solutions •How CFD can have a direct, positive impact on your bottom line Note: All attendees will have access to a free copy of the latest Siemens White Paper: "Using CFD for Optimal Thermal Management and Cooling Design in Data Centers".
