Scala Data Centers Launches Innovative FastDeploy Solution to Support Strategic Growth for Hyperscale Customers in New Latin American Markets

Scala’s proprietary construction method will be used across all of its campuses to dramatically reduce construction time and enable the company’s expansion to 15 new sites by 2023

SAO PAULO, September 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Scala Data Centers, the leading Latin American sustainable data center platform in the Hyperscale market, announces the launch of FastDeploy. Using a proprietary design and build methodology created by its Engineering Center of Excellence, the solution enables data centers to be implemented in up to 50% less time compared to the traditional model. The scalable solution is highly repeatable and is based on pre-engineered, transportable modular components that are integrated into buildings at the data center location maintaining the same quality and security experience compared to traditional data centers.

Located in metropolitan areas, regional data centers are gaining in relevance as they serve as a bridge between large traditional data centers located in central regions and other places with high population, industrial and intense economic activity. . Close to high-density workloads, regional data centers enable computing processing of various services and applications that require low latency, such as metaverse, Internet of Things (IoT), telemedicine, self-driving cars, among others, the implementation of which will be accelerated by 5G in Latin America. Currently, there are more than 87 cities in the region with a population of more than 500,000, of which 26 have more than 2 million inhabitants, in addition to relevant economic activity.

“With FastDeploy, our Hyperscale customers will be able to explore new regional and strategic markets in record time, with all the advantages that pioneering brings, adapting their operations as demand increases,” said Marcos Peigo, CEO of Scala. “As FastDeploy’s capacity blocks are independent and can be added on demand, this approach allows for long-term contracts with smooth growth ramps to higher demands. It will also enable the implementation of shared buildings, without losing the individualized customization functionality that was already available in our single-tenant programs, and present in high-capacity buildings,” adds the leader.

The first markets to receive the FastDeploy solution will be Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegrein Brazil, where the company has already started the construction of two regional data centers with initial capacities of 10.8 MW and 7.2 MW, respectively. In the state of Rio de Janeiro, Southeast Brazil, the infrastructure was born within a 70,000 square meter campus to meet the demand of a global cloud provider with a planned expansion for a total of 70 MW, all phases combined, with the addition of two buildings. In Porto AlegreSouth of Brazil, the Scala project will be officially launched at the beginning of October during an event in the presence of the mayor of the city. The project includes expansion into the region and is a single tenant anchored by a major content provider. The new Scala FastDeploy data centers are expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2023.

FastDeploy is comprised of modular components that provide power and cooling resources ready to support varying densities, reaching more than 20kW per rack. All FastDeploy sites start with a starting capacity of 2 MW, which can be scaled by implementing additional MiniPODs providing 60 racks per block.

Thanks to a strategic and exclusive agreement with Scala, the intelligent modular structures are manufactured by Brazilian modular data centers in a modern factory launched in 2022 and which has more than 20,000 square meters of surface to support, in particular, FastDeploy requests. The manufacturer provides ready-to-use, load-tested, commissioned and TIA-942 Ready certified modular components Latin America.

FastDeploy operates with 100% renewable and certified energy, in line with Scala’s portfolio. The solution is also ANSI/TIA-942 Rated 3 approved, which certifies electrical, mechanical, telecommunications, architectural, and security parameters for data center construction and design. Scala is the only colocation operator in the region to work with this comprehensive standard.
