Elea Digital and Vertiv announce partnership to deliver edge data center services in Brazil. Vertiv, a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, will provide operation and maintenance services for Elea Digital data centers in key metro areas, including Porto Alegre, Curitiba, and Brasilia.
Vertiv’s local technicians will provide support for this first of its kind edge services contract in Brazil. Through the partnership with Elea Digital, Vertiv will gain a larger and wider market to support the Brazilian data center industry growth. The partnership between Elea Digital and Vertiv aims at maintaining market growth rates across a continent-wide geographical footprint.
Elea Digital’s aim is to accelerate the standardization of its multi-location data center platform and, at the same time, to assure to its colocation clients secure services aligned with global best practices. The partnership with Vertiv brings accountability, automated and real time management of key infrastructure. A set of software applications will ensure energy efficiency and cost control to Elea Digital’s six data centers.
According to recent studies of the Uptime Institute, the major bottleneck in the Brazilian data center industry is the lack of experienced manpower, especially when moving away from the central region of São Paulo. By joining forces, Elea Digital and Vertiv will be able to provide knowledge and best practices to less developed but highly demanding metro-areas markets such as Brasilia (where Elea Digital SIG data center is the only Tier III facility), Porto Alegre and Curitiba. The two companies together will be able to bring data center expertise to these edge markets at a faster speed.
“We are excited to start working with Elea Digital on services offerings for edge data centers in Brazil. Our goal is to bring Vertiv and Elea Digital experience to less developed metro-markets, but with high demand,” said Rafael Garrido, vice president of Vertiv Latin America.
“The strategic alliance with Vertiv shows our commitment and enthusiasm with client service as we continue to do our best to ensure that our critical infrastructure is maintained equally secure, miles away from the central cloud region of São Paulo,” concludes Alessandro Lombardi, Chairman of Elea Digital.
