Falcon spreads its wings in Mexico

Scalability, reliability, and flexibility are the three foundational pillar

Layer 9 Data Centers, headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, is proud to have completed the groundbreaking on its “Project Falcon” multi-tenant data center campus in the Bajio region of Mexico on October 11th, 2022. Layer 9 originally planned an initial Phase 1 delivery of 32MW beginning Fall 2023. However, as a direct result of healthy Cloud Service Provider (CSP) demand hitting the region, as well as direct input from several prospects, Layer 9 has since expanded its master plan campus to 96MW across four buildings backed by land and power exclusives to service the ever-growing migration of cloud compute services to the Bajio region.

The Bajio region is considered by many as “the data center alley of LATAM” and is one of the largest clusters in Latin Americaby far the largest planned data center market within Mexico.

Centrally located between Monterrey and Mexico City, the states of Queretaro and Guanajuato are now home to CSP giants like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, and Oracle, among others, who have all announced plans to expand their cloud infrastructure platforms in the region.

From its inception, Layer 9 Data Centers was built on a foundation of being a disruptor in the mission-critical digital infrastructure sector in Latin America. Our mantra is simple: we seek to leverage a diversified and highly experienced management team to exceed the expectations of our clients with a level of service excellence that will be the benchmark for the LATAM data center industry.

For the past two years, Layer 9 has worked on securing the exclusive, long-term contract rights to land and power that will enable CSPs to scale their availability zones in Mexico with a significantly lower total cost of ownership. Project Falcon will provide the infrastructure required to support hyperscale demand and, together with Layer 9 partner Amistad Industrial Parques, provide additional, exclusive growth opportunities.
