Sao Paulo, Brazil Cloud Hosting

Equinix SP2 in Sao Paulo, Brazil is one of the most connected datacenters in South America.

SP2 is a Tier III-certified data center, meeting international standards that ensure the highest level of redundancy and connectivity, and is the only data center provider to offer Tier III-certified data centers in both Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The $22M USD addition to SP2, located in the Sao Paulo suburb of Tambore, provides space for an additional 600 cabinets, bringing the total to 1,270.

SP2 is the first data center in Brazil to use external cold air to cool the data center environment. Whenever the external temperature is lower than 62.6 degrees F, this "indirect cooling" technology pumps outside air to lower the temperature of the cooling liquid, which is used to cool the data center. Designed with sustainability in mind, SP2's water consumption will be reduced by 70 percent and power consumption by 10 percent.
