The Data Center department works with buildings and demands for the sole purpose of this type of activity. Because these demands require specific expertise, our team is made up of professionals specialized in this market serving the 3 main fronts: Occupiers, Operators and Investors.


Occupiers


Companies that have a space dedicated to IT within their offices, in their own or shared data center. We conduct analyses of their current occupancy for the best placement of this space, including Stay vs Gostudies, renegotiation of colocation contracts and operational Sale & Leasebacks.

Occupancy analysis - Colocation plan
  • Analysis of the current IT infrastructure
  • Analysis of the technical requirements of the project

  • Survey of potential operators
  • Technical and financial comparisons between operators
  • Business negotiations
  • SLA negotiations
  • Assistance with the final contract









Operators


Companies that sell colocation, hosting, telecom services, or who need a fully dedicated data center.

We focus on searching for self-standing buildings for mission-critical systems, using tools such as the mapping of cables, high-voltage lines and surveying risk factors to the operation.
