Latitude.sh Selects Scala Data Centers to Extend Brazil Data Center Footprint
SÃO PAULO, Brazil, Nov. 17, 2021 -- Scala Data Centers — the sustainable hyperscalable data center platform founded by DigitalBridge — digital infrastructure investment holding company of DigitalBridge Group, Inc. — is excited to announce a strategic partnership with global bare metal cloud provider Latitude.sh.
Latitude.sh's bare metal cloud platform enables rapid deployment, high performance, secure seamless experiences, and ease of maintenance through a combination of dedicated servers, high-end processors, and software-based automation. Scala was selected by Latitude.sh to extend the capacity of Latitude.sh's cutting-edge MH1 São Paulo facility.
“Our MH1 facility is reaching capacity and we needed to ensure an infrastructure that could keep up with our rapidly expanding growth rate. Thus, the partnership with Scala provides us with an environment of exceptional scalability, reliability, quality, and security, ensuring the continuity of our business in the long term,” explains Guilherme Soubihe Alberto, CEO of Latitude.sh. According to the executive, Latitude.sh serves customers with a global presence in diverse segments such as games, CDN, VPN, communication, streaming, and integrators, which require high processing, low latency, and agility.
Scala serves as a trusted advisor and sees its infrastructure as an extension of its customers’ environments. “We enable a robust data center platform that guarantees the necessary infrastructure customization, in line with a long-term commitment to delivering connectivity, security, and power that will enable Latitude.sh to correctly size its upcoming increased capacity requirements,” says Cleber Braz, Vice President of Business Development & Customer Services.
Scala customers who are looking to deploy cloud, edge, and other latency-sensitive applications, can now have direct access to Latitude.sh's industry-leading dedicated hardware and bare metal capabilities as the initiative positions Latitude.sh as the bare metal partner in Scala’s ecosystem.
Latitude.sh's new MH2 facility will be deployed at Scala's SP2 data center, located in the city of São Paulo. A high-speed optical fiber ring will be established to connect MH2 to Latitude.sh's existing MH1 facility (just 6 km away), ensuring low latency connectivity between the sites and creating the opportunity for customers to have site redundancy. Customers from both sites will also be able to leverage the fiber backbone for reliability and performance.
MH2 will accommodate an initial power of almost 2 MW. The contract is designed to support future Latitude.sh expansion in the Scala environment by guaranteeing the availability of renewable and certified energy, backed by renewable energy certificates (RECs), issued by The International REC Standard Foundation.
