Peruvian telco Optical Networks is developing two more data centers in the capital city of Lima.
The company told BNAmericas it plans to invest in two new local data centers to meet growing demand for business services. Specifications weren’t shared.
“We have plans to build another data center on the border between the two main districts of Lima, San Borja and San Isidro,” Augusto Cuadros, Optical Networks data center and cloud business unit manager, told the publication. The facility is currently under construction, will start operations by end-2022.
Cuadros added that another data center for recovery purposes will be built in Lima.
Optical Networks currently operates three data centers in Lima, with additional facilities in Tacna and Arequipa.
Cuadros added Optical Networks could invest in smaller edge data centers in the future, and is evaluating modular, prefabricated and stacked container models, but has not yet decided.
Potential locations for the units the company calls development poles are Trujillo, Piura and Chiclayo. “It is very likely that we will put a data center in some of these locations because companies are demanding [services],” said Cuadros.
