Level 3 lança serviços cloud para a América Latina
Offers a Fully Managed, Secure Virtual Computing and Storage Environment over an End-to-end Network that Guarantees Resource Availability and Enables Burst Consumption
“Latin America’s fast growing economies and businesses are demanding scalable, good quality and inexpensive telecommunications services,” stated Elia San Miguel, principal research analyst at Gartner. “The region continues to look promising as a hyper-growth market because colocation, hosting and managed services have a high uptake, primarily from multinationals looking to expand their market presence.”
Specific to the Brazilian market, a recent Gartner study surveying enterprise IT decision-makers found that 60 percent of respondents planned to allocate some of their 2012 external IT services budget to cloud computing related services.

Obviously this builds on Global Crossing’s services to the region, which were more advanced for them in Latin America than elsewhere in the world thanks to the data center assets acquired with Impsat a few years prior. What has changed, of course, is that after the merger with Level 3′s assets the combined company has a global data center footprint. Thus, we can probably look forward to this service’s geographic reach to arrive in the US and Europe before long, whereas those regions have been the focus of the integration over the last few quarters.
