Report highlights Scala’s competitive strategy and robust growth with pioneering sustainability actions in Brazil
Scala Data Centers, a sustainable hyper-scalable data center platform, founded by DigitalBridge – DigitalBridge Group, Inc.’s (NYSE:DBRG) digital infrastructure investment holding company – has just been named, for the second consecutive year, as leader in the Colocation quadrant of ISG Provider Lens™ Next-gen Private/Hybrid Cloud – Data Center Services & Solutions 2021, in Brazil. Scala was highlighted in the study for its experience and focus on serving the hyperscaler market, for its proven ability to expand its operations and its actions, and for its pioneering results in ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) in Brazil.
In the assessment of ISG analysts, the company’s growth is evidenced by the investment in the construction of 3 data centers on its Tamboré (SP) campus: SP3, which is officially opening in 2021, two single-tenant data centers under construction and dedicated to the demand for hyperscalers, and a 90 MW campus in Campinas (SP), which had as catalyst the acquisition of Algar Tech’s data center assets this year.
ISG’s analysis also highlights Scala’s long experience of 20 years of operations with 100% availability, which relies on modern, high-density facilities, ensuring reliability, security, and connectivity.
Given the importance of the ESG theme, the ISG Provider Lens™ Next-gen Private/Hybrid Cloud – Data Center Services & Solutions 2021 study started, as of this edition, to evaluate it among the criteria for colocation providers. In the environmental aspect, the report points out that Scala Data Centers is ahead of its competitors in the region, given the achievement of carbon neutrality, in 2021, and for already operating, since 2020, with 100% renewable energy.
The study also considered the recent announcement of an Edge Computing partnership with Gemelo, a provider of modular data center solutions, leveraging the more than 6,500 points of presence of tower assets controlled by DigitalBridge companies in Latin America.
