HostDime Announces Colombian Data Center Plans

1 comment

HostDime has purchased a land parcel in Bogotá, Colombia where it intends to build a Tier IV data center to meet the booming demand of the local market, the company announced in a blog post on Friday.

The land is located in an enclosed industrial park which HostDime calls “highly secure” in North Bogotá, and the company plans to build the facility over the next year or two, according to the post.

The company has operated in Colombia since 2008, and already has a data center and a sales and support office in Bogotá.

The new 20,000 square-foot data center will be one of only a few Tier IV facilities in Colombia, with redundant power and cooling to support 99.995 percent availability, and extensive physical access control measures, including CCTV and biometric systems.

From the data center, HostDime will offer high density cloud infrastructure for colocation clients, with redundant connections from C&W, Level3 and Globnet, as well as its managed dedicated servers, and KVM VPS, which the company says is one of its most popular products in the Colombian market.

HostDime launched a Tier III data center in Brazil earlier this year, as it continues to expand in the Latin American market, which had projected IT revenue growth of 20 percent in 2016, according to Frost & Sullivan.

  1. Web hosts like HostDime are among the few less known web hosting companies that are working hard to make a space in the competitive web hosting market. Opening a new Tier IV data center in Colombia sounds a good move. They should also focus more on their customer support and server performance.
