HostDime has acquired a three-acre land parcel in Guadalajara, Mexico, where the operator plans to build a 70,000 square feet data centre.

With an estimated completion date of Q4 2023, the building will feature 6MW of IT load.

This will be HostDime’s second Guadalajara data centre, with a current 20,000 square feet facility operating at 85% capacity.

HostDime Mexico works with local connectivity providers including Marcatel, MetroCarrier, Axtel, TotalPlay, Alestra, Cogent, and Telmex.

Manny Vivar, CEO & Founder of HostDime Global, said: “Our vision from the early days to be a leader in the global data center industry continues to drive us to build these next-gen, purpose-built data centre facilities in unique, global edge locations.

“The world is noticing that being on the edge of global locations is the next frontier. HostDime has been making these investments for over a decade to position us to be able to serve the market demand.”

The Mexico market is seeing an unprecedented amount of demand that is being driven by a digital-first economy, the evolution of online gaming, IoT, deployment of 5G, localised in-country compute, and blockchain technology.

Guadalajara is the second-largest metropolitan area in Mexico and is nicknamed the Silicon Valley of Mexico thanks to several thousand tech start-ups in the region.

The Mexico data centre market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 8.33% during the period 2020−2026, when it is expected to reach a combined capital investment of US$905 million, according to Arizton.
