Scala Data Centers launch solution for hyperscale customers

Scala Data Centers have released a new building method to reduce construction time and enable the company's expansion to 15 new locations by 2023

Scala Data Centers has announced the launch of FastDeploy, a new design solution which according to the company allows implementing data centres up to 50% less time when compared to the traditional model. 

The scalable solution is based on prefabricated and transportable modular components which are integrated into buildings at the data centre location keeping the same quality and security experience compared to traditional data centres.

"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, scaling their operations as demand grows", explains Marcos Peigo, CEO at Scala. 

"As FastDeploy's capacity blocks are independent and can be added up on demand, this approach allows for long-term contracts with smooth ramps of growth to higher demands. It will also allow for the implementation of shared buildings, without losing the individualised customisation feature that was already available in our single tenant developments, and present in high-capacity buildings", adds the executive.

Reducing construction time with new solution

Regional data centres enable the computational processing of various services and applications that require low latency, such as the Metaverse, Internet of Things (IoT), telemedicine and self-driving cars. 

FastDeploy operates on 100% renewable and certified energy, in line with Scala's portfolio. The solution is also endorsed by the ANSI/TIA-942 Rated 3 standard, which attests to electrical, mechanical, telecom, architecture and safety parameters for the construction and design of data centers. Scala is the only colocation operator in the region to work with this comprehensive standard.

The first markets to receive the FastDeploy solution will be Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre, in Brazil, where the company has already started the construction of two regional data centers with initial capacities of 10.8MW and 7.2MW, respectively. 

In the state of Rio de Janeiro, Southeast Brazil, the infrastructure is built within a 70,000 square-metre campus to meet the demand of a global cloud provider with expansion planned for a total of 70MW, including all phases, with the addition of two buildings. In Porto Alegre, South of Brazil, the Scala project will be officially launched in early October at an event attended by the city's mayor. The project comprises expansion in the region and is a single-tenant anchored by a large content provider.

The new Scala FastDeploy data centres are expected to be operational in first quarter of 2023.
