C&W Panama plans investment of $4.5 million in data center
Sep 09, 2010 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Cable & Wireless Panama has announced plans to spend approximately $4.5 million to establish a data center in the Panama Pacific Special Economic Area, or AEEPP, according to local newspaper Panama America.
The report said that the data center will focus on storage of information and will operate as a server for business customer operations in Central America and the Caribbean.
Jose Quintero, executive director of technology at C&W Panama, was quoted by the source as saying: "The decision to locate this data center in the AEEPP is due to the location of a fiber optic cable crossing Panama's 'Bridge of the Americas' that enables high speed transfer of information in both directions." http://www.datamonitor.com Republication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.
