Sweden’s Flexenclosure Building Data Centers for Chile and Ecuador

Swedish modular infrastructure specialist Flexenclosure has won contracts to build data centers in Chile and Ecuador.

The news comes barely weeks after the company installed a Tier 3 data center for Tigo Business in Paraguay and TigoUne in Colombia.

The Swedish firm has not named the customer of its latest contracts, nor has it disclosed financial details.

The data centers, likely to be up and running by the end of 2018, provide hosting, collocation, and fiber-optic carrier services.

The company says it would soon start building the data centers at its factory in Vara, Sweden, and deploy them in the first half of next year.

Flexenclosure builds modular data centers that can be constructed in a fraction of the time it takes to erect a traditional facility, and can be easily shipped to areas where building a permanent data center is impractical.

Data centers of this kind are becoming increasingly popular in several developing countries around the world, with many of them having previously been deployed by African telecom firms including Vodacom and MTN.

“Our eCentre data center is not only the best choice when it matters to the customer with fast delivery, it also offers almost unlimited flexibility in configuration and deployment,” said David King, CEO of Flexenclosure, in a press release.
