Flexenclosure, which designs and delivers prefabricated modular data centres for colocation, cloud and communications companies, has completed construction of a new eCentre data centre for Tigo Business in Nicaragua. This is one of six new data centres Flexenclosure is delivering for Millicom’s Tigo operations.
The new data centre is located in the Nicaraguan capital of Managua. It was built in Flexenclosure’s manufacturing plant in Sweden before being transported to site for final construction and commissioning. The eCentre has been custom-designed and reinforced to withstand seismic disturbance. The data centre will be Uptime Institute Tier III certified and is expandable when necessary.
In addition to the new Nicaraguan facility, Flexenclosure has already delivered state-of-the-art eCentre data centres to Millicom/Tigo in Paraguay, Colombia and Bolivia, and has two more facilities in the works for Honduras and El Salvador. Through its new energy-efficient eCentre facilities, Tigo says it is providing increased data protection measures as well as a range of integrated services such as cloud servers, applications, storage, backup and recovery, colocation, virtual desks, cybersecurity, IoT, big data and analytics and cloud environments – private, public and hybrid.
These facilities are all part of Millicom’s $68m investment in improving data infrastructure in the Latin American region. Millicom recently agreed to sell its operations in Chad to Morocco-based Maroc Telecom, as part of an ongoing strategy to exit Africa and focus on its Latin American operations.
