Interoute, the global cloud and network provider, has announced the launch of new services in São Paulo, Brazil.The site is Interoute’s first in South America, and will deliver a range of connectivity solutions, as well as host a new Interoute Virtual Data Centre zone. This latest addition to Interoute’s platform builds on its existing Americas presence in Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Washington.

As customer demand for Interoute’s services continues to grow, São Paulo provides an entry point into the rapidly developing emerging markets in South America. The city is ranked by the Global Cities Indexas the South American leader in business activity.

“The economic powerhouse of South America is increasingly important to our global customer base, with São Paulo in particular becoming a magnet for cloud and SaaS,” said Mark Lewis, EVP of Products and Development at Interoute.

“Strategically, this is a significant development for the Interoute Enterprise Digital Platform as it brings our cloud and SD-WAN capabilities to a whole new continent. Our platform helps enterprises optimise the performance of applications deployed from SaaS providers and hosted in dispersed data centre locations around the globe; regional presence is key to accelerating that performance across our low-latency SDN core network.”

The new site in South America demonstrates Interoute’s commitment to increasing its global footprint by adding yet another continent to its platform reach, following its recent announcement for Sydney, Australia.

With services in São Paulo set to go live in the first half of 2018, Interoute’s global network will now connect 128 major cities across 31 countries on 5 continents. Interoute offers a global ICT infrastructure platform that supports the secure integration of enterprise legacy IT with digital environments.
