HostDime has purchased a land parcel in Bogotá, Colombia where it intends to build a Tier IV data center to meet the booming demand of the local market, the company announced in a blog post on Friday.
The land is located in an enclosed industrial park which HostDime calls "highly secure" in North Bogotá, and the company plans to build the facility over the next year or two, according to the post.
The company has operated in Columbia since 2008, and already has a data center and a sales and support office in Bogotá.
The new 3,500 square-foot data center will be one of only a few Tier IV facilities in Columbia, with redundant power and cooling to support 99.9 percent availability, and extensive physical access control measures, including CCTV and biometric systems.
From the data center, HostDime will offer high density cloud infrastructure for colocation clients, with redundant connections from C&W, Level3 and Globnet, as well as its managed dedicated servers, and KVM VPS, which the company says is one of its most popular products in the Colombian market.
HostDime launched a Tier III data center in Brazil earlier this year, as it continues to expand in the Latin American market, which had projected IT revenue growth of 20 percent in 2016, according to Frost & Sullivan.

(Bloomberg) — The U.S. Justice Department is moving to scale back the use of orders forcing technology companies to turn over customer data without alerting users to the clandestine interception of their information.
Microsoft Corp., which sued the government over the practice last year, and other internet giants have argued that the future of cloud computing is in jeopardy if customers can't trust that their data will remain private. In response to new guidelines quietly issued last week by the Justice Department aimed at making "sneak-and-peek" searches more selective, Microsoft said Monday it plans to drop its lawsuit, which was backed by rivals including Alphabet Inc.'s Google and Amazon.com Inc.
The rapid growth of the cloud, in which customer data is stored by providers like Microsoft, Apple Inc., Amazon and Google in the technology companies' own servers, has increased the frequency of warrants seeking information.
Going forward, prosecutors must "conduct an individualized and meaningful assessment" of whether a secrecy order is needed, according to a memo issued by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. For internet users whose data is sought, the government shouldn't delay notifying them for more than a year, except "barring exceptional circumstances," according to the memo. Microsoft argued in court that too many data requests carry secrecy provisions, often of indefinite duration, that violate the company's free-speech
