On-demand bare metal cloud provider Maxihost is partnering with KIO Networks to launch a new point of presence (PoP) for its platform in Mexico City. This adds a third location to Maxihost’s Latin America footprint, following Brazil and Chile.
Maxihost’s state-of-the-art platform will support international clients interested in bare metal servers delivered instantly to support many types of use cases such as gaming, streaming, VPNs, and other low-latency, high-bandwidth applications.
Mexico, with a population of close to 130 million people, is Latin America’s largest economy after Brazil, and is fast becoming a major interconnection and digital hub. The Mexico City metro area alone has more than 21 million people.
Maxihost’s new PoP is situated in KIO’s MEX|5 Data Center, one of the most important interconnection hubs in all of Mexico. The facility is strategically located right in Mexico City and offers high levels of availability, redundancy and security, as well as access to a wide range of local and international networks.
“We are thrilled to team up with KIO Networks to bring our Bare Metal Cloud platform to Mexico,” says Guilherme Soubihe Alberto, CEO of Maxihost. “We are launching our new location with more than twenty international customers, most of whom are currently reaching end users in Mexico and Central America from Dallas, Texas. Having servers so much closer to targeted users and access to KIO’s low-latency networks in the region will enable an enhanced customer experience — whether that is for gaming, streaming, or other high-bandwidth applications.”
“We are very excited to welcome Maxihost to the KIO ecosystem,” adds Santiago Suinaga, Managing Director of KIO Data Center Services. “Maxihost offers an impressive range of bare metal servers that are unrivaled in Mexico City, including purpose-built machines that are optimized for particular workloads including energy-efficient, high-performance ARM-based servers. Our many existing and future clients will benefit by being able to instantly deploy these powerful bare metal offerings using Maxihost’s easy-to-use cloud platform.”
Maxihost sees the addition of Mexico to its footprint as part of a global strategy to bring the benefits of its Bare Metal Cloud to broader audiences. The company has additional geographical expansion goals for this year, with new locations planned in Europe and Asia that will add to the company’s existing presence in Latin America, the United States, Australia and Japan.
