Leaseweb opens Miami data center to broaden U.S. footprint and offer infrastructure springboard to South America
Leaseweb USA, a leading hosting and cloud services company, today announces the opening of a new data center facility in Miami to expand its hosting potential in the United States and creates a future pathway into South America. The new facility completes the circle of Leaseweb data centers in the United States, adding to the ten current locations operating across the country. 

The opening of the data center in Miami will form a stepping stone to South America in line with Leaseweb's global expansion plans. Leaseweb already offers customers hosting services on four continents in locations across Europe, Asia, Australia and North America.

Lex Boost, CEO of Leaseweb USA, says: "Leaseweb has built its business on offering internet decision makers high quality, reliable global hosting services. Increasingly companies of all sizes are finding themselves working globally, both through remote employees and expanding customer bases, which in turn drives their need for multi-location data centers. The opening of our Miami location is another step forward in catering to our global customer base. It increases our U.S. footprint by adding a key location to our collection of data centers and provides both current and future customers with a great way to bridge their business into South America."

Businesses are increasingly seeking a hybrid cloud service partner that can host all their data across the globe. With its global presence, Leaseweb can serve as a single point of contact, offer compliance with local requirements, and ‘speak the local language' of every customer.

Boost adds: "For many of our customers it's important to reach a wider world. Leaseweb helps them to achieve this goal with our large number of locations in the U.S. and the rest of the world. The location in Miami provides a springboard into the greater Americas, allowing us to get one step closer to meeting our ambitious growth goals and enables our customers to reach the unreachable."

The Miami data center, which will be operational in February 2019, is located in a private, secure space in a Coresite facility. It was selected after Leaseweb's Data Center Operation performed a ‘selection audit' that assessed security and compliance with local risk mitigation practices.

In addition to Miami, Leaseweb operates data centers in Washington DC, New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle. It also has locations in Amsterdam, London, Frankfurt, Singapore, Hong Kong and Sydney.
