Cirion Strengthens Regional Data Center Platform with New 20-Megawatt Facility in Perú

Lurín facility will be a state-of-the-art, energy-efficient data center with direct fiber connectivity to Cirion’s existing ecosystem-dense facility in Lima, and will provide interconnect-oriented colocation capacity to the region’s rapidly growing data center market 

MIAMI, June 06, 2023 – Cirion, a leading digital infrastructure and technology provider, today announced that the Company has started construction on a new 12,000 square meters, 20-megawatt carrier-neutral data center in the industrial district of Macropolis in Lurín, Perú. Cirion is backed by Stonepeak, a leading alternative investment firm specializing in infrastructure and real assets with more than $55 billion in assets under management and an extensive portfolio of communications and digital infrastructure investments globally.

The new data center is expected to open in the first quarter of 2025 and will be well-equipped to meet the needs of hyperscale cloud service providers, carriers, content providers, and enterprises that require scalable infrastructure. Strategically located in Lurín, the facility will have access to a business-friendly environment, renewable energy, diverse metro and long-haul connectivity to major cities and tech hubs in the region, and proximity to international subsea cable networks to facilitate minimal latency between Latin America and other regions.

In line with the Cirion’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy, and the Company’s commitment to technological innovation, the new facility will be one of the most energy efficient data centers in the region, with a market-leading PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness).

“The development of this new data center is another important step in our journey to grow our platform of low-latency, interconnected data centers and establish a thriving digital ecosystem across Latin America,” said Facundo Castro, CEO for Cirion Technologies. “In a world where data-driven and multi-cloud technology is advancing the way we work and live, and data is the pillar for groundbreaking business decisions, it’s important for data to be properly stored, processed, assured, and analyzed. The surging popularity of IoT, 5G, AI, networks, and streaming content has fueled an unrelenting demand for capacity, and data centers are critical to keeping these services running.”

The Lurín-based data center will be directly connected through redundant fiber to Cirion’s existing ecosystem-dense data center in Lima, located only 35 kilometers away, and integrated into Cirion’s broader carrier-neutral platform comprising 18 data centers across Latin America. Cirion’s data centers offer cloud providers and enterprises scalable colocation, cross connectivity, and disaster recovery capabilities, and allows customers to connect directly to 90+ carriers and public cloud providers in the region with peer-to-peer connectivity.
