EdgeConneX opens SCL01 edge data center in Santiago, Chile

Jan. 19, 2021
SCL01 offers 7 MW of capacity as well as low-latency connectivity. Oracle will offer at least some of that connectivity via Oracle Cloud and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect.

EdgeConneX says it has opened a new edge data center in Santiago, Chile. EdgeConneX Santiago, SCL01, is the company’s 33rd facility globally. Plans are already underway for construction of SCL02 on the same campus.

SCL01 offers 7 MW of capacity as well as low-latency connectivity. Oracle will offer at least some of that connectivity via Oracle Cloud and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect. EdgeConneX is a member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN).

“We are thrilled to further extend our Edge footprint in Latin America with the addition of our newest data center in Santiago, a historically underserved data center market of the world,” stated Phillip Marangella, chief marketing officer at EdgeConneX. “As a result, our service provider customers like Oracle can extend their solutions locally to enterprises and organizations that will gain access to low-latency connectivity and content delivery, as well as the finest private cloud services available. We are looking forward to be a part of Santiago’s current and future growth in the region’s digital economy.”

“We welcome the arrival of EdgeConneX in Chile,” added Lucas Palacios, The Economy Minister for the Government of Chile. “Our country needs investment that focuses on technology, innovation, and the sophistication of human capital that will make us more competitive in the region, and the world. This is particularly true in the context of the economic recovery we face in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Chile is a country that offers companies, operators, service providers, and technology firms a solid platform for the growing digital economy. This is the direction that we are looking toward for the country’s future development.”
