Kio Networks has acquired a new data center campus in the greater Mexico City Metro area.

Called KIO MEX6, the campus boasts a capacity of up to 20MW of energy in a 50,000 square meter facility, with the ability to house operations and critical IT and telecom services.

Other details about the data center are relatively scarce, with Kio Networks confirming the facility is "carrier-neutral," and strategically located to key business hubs in Mexico.

The company says that Kio MEX6 will strengthen Kio's digital ecosystem by connecting hundreds of data centers around the world.

According to its website, Kio already provides mission-critical IT infrastructure services that operate 40 state-of-the-art data centers in Mexico, Panama, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, and Spain.

“A strategic priority for KIO is to continue growing, expanding, and deploying infrastructure in the greater Mexico City area, the largest market of the country where we have a very important presence," said Kio Data Centers managing director Santiago Suinaga.

"Our expansion responds to the great growth and high demand for data centers and IT services currently experiencing in the region, both from the Enterprise sector along with the hyperscalers and public cloud providers."

"This acquisition reinforces KIO's position as a benchmark company in the Latin American data centers infrastructure and information technology market, with the regional coverage of our data centers distributed in Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and Europe, where we will continue to invest to strengthen and expand our infrastructures to remain at the forefront of the sector, meeting current and expected future demands," added KIO Networks CEO Jorge Sapién.

Kio Networks was acquired last year by infrastructure investment firm I Squared Capital, through its ISQ Global Infrastructure Fund III and ISQ Growth Markets Infrastructure Fund. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
