LatAm data center firm OData has launched a new facility outside Santiago, Chile.

The Aligned-owned company this week announced the launch of DC ST02 in San Bernardo in the south of Santiago.

The second facility OData operates in Chile, DC ST02 offers 40.6MW across 366,000 sq ft (43,000 sqm). The property features an on-site substation.

“One notable point in the construction of our second data center in the country was our nimbleness and agility in adapting to Chilean regulations to ensure that the site complies with all legal requirements without affecting the agreed delivery time,” commented Ricardo Alário, OData's LATAM CEO. “We have effectively navigated diverse environments with varying building and zoning legislation and often, high complexity.”

OData also announced the expansion of its DC ST01 data center campus with plans for a second building. Located in northwest Santiago, ST01 offers 28MW across 434,860 sq ft (40,400 sqm); the company broke ground on the site in 2021.

Founded in 2015 by Brazilian private equity firm Patria Investments, OData has since been acquired by Aligned, in a deal that closed earlier this year.

As well as Chile, OData offers colocation services from four data center sites in Brazil and one each in Colombia and Mexico. The company launched a campus in Rio earlier this year.
