Tier IV data center in Guadalajara , Mexico
Often referred to as the four-nine ’ s , Tier IV data centers have 99.99 % availability and often achieve 100 % uptime due to their highly redundant power infrastructure . The facility will also incorporate ICREA V standards and thus will also be ICREA V certified by ICREA ( International Computer Room Experts Association ).
The new facility follows the iconic HostDime contemporary style of all the facilities it designs and builds . This style is a combination of the distinguished HostDime next-gen data center design , purpose-built highly redundant Tier IV power infrastructure and client-centric colocation amenities .
The design of this new facility also incorporates additional vertical office floors on the front part of the data center . These office floors will accommodate the local demand HostDime Mexico is seeing from potential clients who want to be tenants in the data center and office tenants . These office floors are not the typical office build-out , as they will inherit the highly redundant power infrastructure being implemented in the data center . So this will accommodate unique use cases by companies who seek specialized technology office space while also being tenants of the data center .
“ We are very excited to release the design of HostDime ’ s new data center in Guadalajara , Jalisco , Mexico , in the cradle of innovation , ‘ The Silicon Valley of Mexico ’,” said Eduardo Basulto Jiménez , CEO of HostDime México . “ Guadalajara has innovative technology roots and being the second largest metropolitan city in Mexico , we know this new data center facility will properly serve the surrounding market .”
HostDime ’ s mission is to design , build and operate purpose-built , next-gen , public data center facilities in emerging markets around the globe .
