To meet continuing strong customer demand for its IT infrastructure solutions in Latin America, Terremark, a Verizon Company, today announced the completion of the latest expansion of its Bogota, Colombia data center, the Network Access Point (NAP) of the Americas-Colombia. The newly expanded cloud-enabled facility has doubled in size to approximately 10,000 square feet of data center floor space since its opening in 2008 and is considered one of the most connected data centers in Colombia.
The expansion of Terremark’s Bogota facility is part of a global strategy to make advanced IT solutions available through its network of nearly 50 strategically located data centers around the world. Through its NAP of the Americas-Colombia and NAP of Brazil facilities, Terremark collectively offers more than 50,000 square feet of raised data center floor space in Latin America.
