The anchor deal will enable a new campus with 45MW total capacity in the Latin American country, it added.

Details about precise location, timeline, or facility specifications weren't shared.

On its website, Scala said it has confirmed projects scheduled to open in 2023 across Chile, Colombia, and Mexico.

The company was formed in 2020 by DigitalBridge out of data center assets it acquired from Brazilian IT firm UOL Diveo. The company raised $100 million from the International Finance Corporation (IFC) in November 2021.

Scala currently operates a number of facilities in Brazil around São Paulo. Last year it announced it was developing two more hyperscale facilities in the city of Barueri that are expected to be operational by April and September of 2022, respectively, and has plans o build a large SP6 facility at its Tamboré campus.
