MIAMI -- To meet continuing strong customer demand for its IT infrastructure solutions in Latin America, Terremark, a Verizon Company, today announced the latest expansion of its São Paulo, Brazil data center, the Network Access Point (NAP) do Brasil. As part of the expansion, Terremark took over operation of the entire 185,000-square-foot data center facility, adding 15,000 square feet of raised floor space to its current operations. This expansion makes the NAP do Brasil – which is capable of housing approximately 100,000 servers – one of the largest multi-tenant data centers in the region.

The expansion of Terremark’s operations in Brazil is part of its overall global strategy to deliver advanced infrastructure and managed IT services through its network of close to 50 strategically located data centers. Along with successfully completing SAS 70 and PCI compliance audits, the NAP do Brasil was recently accredited with the internationally recognized ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certification, which provides third-party verification that the company’s Brazilian colocation services conform to an information security management standard that helps protect the integrity of customers’ critical and sensitive information.

“Our main focus in expanding our São Paulo data center is to provide local customers with a secure, highly available hosting environment for their mission-critical applications,” said Hugo Zanon, general manager of Verizon’s Brazilian Terremark operations. “The NAP do Brasil offers our multinational customers a globally connected facility they can leverage as they deploy the IT resources needed to tap the growing Brazilian and Latin American markets.”
