CommScope and ODATA, a Brazilian company specializing in
colocation services for large customers in a wide range of industries, are
partnering in the Latin America market to offer multi-tenant data center
services. With the agreement, CommScope extends its support for MTDC in Latin
America and the Caribbean region.
A MTDC is a ready-made space, owned and operated by a
third- party with complete infrastructure including power, data network and
physical spaces. With this model, the customer doesn’t need to build, maintain
or operate a separate data center. This partnership was signed to address
current market changes where more companies are choosing to outsource data

“In recent years, companies have increased outsourcing of their IT resources
by opting for shared environments in which data centers are seen as an
operating expense," said Ed Solis, vice president of enterprise sales for CommScope’s
Latin America and the Caribbean region. "MTDC's infrastructure makes
advanced technologies such as cloud computing and data center virtualization
available to companies of all sizes, while delivering flexibility and ease of
growth as customers' business expands."
ODATA opened its first MTDC in Brazil, SP01, in Santana do Parnaíba, in
2017. In addition to the data center in Santana do Parnaíba, ODATA is building
Colombia's largest carrier-neutral data center in Bogotá and has just announced
the start of construction of a data center campus in Hortolândia, in the
interior of São Paulo, aimed at companies with larger data demands. ODATA
offers 40 megawatts of IT power, the largest in Latin America, which will be
delivered gradually starting in January 2020. All ODATA data centers are
connected to the main public cloud hubs in Brazil and the world.
"It is certainly a very advantageous partnership for both companies. This
enables ODATA to leverage the strength of the CommScope brand with its
commercial channels to identify and bring new portfolio projects to customers.
We now have the ability to offer colocation services to our commercial channel
in addition to our existing portfolio, which brings additional revenue to our
company," highlights André Busnardo, chief sales officer at ODATA.
