CyrusOne Helps Launch ODATA’s First Data Center in Colombia

The Largest Carrier Neutral Data Center in Colombia is Operational
with the Official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Taking Place on May 30th in
Bogotá

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE), a premier global data center REIT, today
announced that it has helped ODATA construct and launch the company’s
first data center in Bogotá, Colombia. ODATA’s new data center, DC BG01,
is the second ODATA data center, the first outside Brazil after DC SP01
in São Paulo, which has been operational since May 2017. The ribbon
cutting ceremony will take place on May 30th at the facility
and will be attended by company leaders from CyrusOne, ODATA, and Patria
Investments.

The BG01 Data Center is a 7.8MW facility, the largest carrier neutral
data center in Bogotá, Colombia. It is a high density, certified Tier
III Design data center, with 6,400 m² total area. Customers moved
on-site in April 2019. With CyrusOne global expertise in data center
construction and operation, the new facility was fully constructed in
just 6 months and deploys industry-leading standards for physical
security.

In October 2018, CyrusOne invested $12 million in exchange for a 10%
equity interest in ODATA. In connection with the investment, CyrusOne
and ODATA entered a commercial agreement covering leasing activity with
CyrusOne customers in the ODATA portfolio. In addition, Kevin Timmons,
CyrusOne’s chief technology officer, joined the ODATA board of directors.

“DC BG01 was built in record time through a powerful combination of
ODATA´s local expertise with CyrusOne’s global supply chain that enables
customers in Colombia the same level of services we offer to our
customers globally, “ said Timmons. “We are excited about ODATA´s
expansion in Colombia and look forward to working alongside our global
and local customers at the new flagship data center.”

“ODATA has grown rapidly in Brazil with the construction of their second
data center in São Paulo, and now for the first time in Colombia.
Combining tour local expertise with CyrusOne’s global platform enables
our customers to have world-class data center capacity in the region,”
said Ricardo Alario, chief executive officer of ODATA.
“With the ongoing development of the largest data center campus in
Brazil, and now with a strong presence in Colombia, ODATA is well
positioned to be a truly dominant player on the continent.”
