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 .

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 .
