The second smallest country in Latin America has achieved a big status in the IT industry. Uruguay now boasts one of the largest and most advanced data centers, being fourth in the continent to hold the coveted Tier III certification by Uptime Institute. Chatsworth Products (CPI) played a major role in this achievement.
Uruguay’s telecommunications giant, Antel, wanted to ensure the future and growing IT needs of the country’s population and businesses, stated Horacio Andrés Tolosa, Antel’s President, during his speech at the data center's opening ceremony. The company also wanted to be able to offer improved cloud and collocation capacity to its users.
With the help of CPI's expertise, Antel approved the design and construction of a world-class data center that is among the top on the planet. In fact, only 34 data centers today can claim a Tier III status for design and construction.
Since the beginning of the project, CPI’s Latin American team provided design consultancy, delivering seminars and training on concepts such as Passive Cooling®, Kyoto Cooling, data center architecture, security, networking, power and cooling, software, application, in addition to all of the infrastructure pieces that make up the data center, including:
“This project amplifies the solution options that CPI offers, showcasing our expertise in custom design and production, data center consultancy and the quality of our products, which gave Antel the reason to select the best brand in the market,” said Victor Bañuelos, CPI’s Technical Manager, CDCDP®, Uptime Institute Accredited Tier Designer and head of the project.
This investment will allow the company to save 40% in IT costs, 85% in operations and maintenance and 20% in energy, according to a company press release.
“We have the best place in Latin America to hold information and this is a great opportunity for the development of the IT industry in Uruguay,” Carolina Cosse, Minister of Industries, Energy and Mining, said in a speech at the opening ceremony.
