Microsoft opens Data Center in Querétaro

QUERETARO - The governor of Querétaro, Mauricio Kuri, celebrated the start of operations of the first Hyperscale Cloud Data Center Region in Mexico, established by Microsoft. The governor highlighted that this project is fundamental in the technological evolution of the country.

"Thanks to the culture of entrepreneurship, talent and innovation, the Microsoft corporation begins operations in Querétaro. With the start-up of the Hyperscale Cloud Centers, all small and medium-sized companies and entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to modernize their databases," Kuri wrote on his social networks.

According to the State Government, the Hyper-scale Cloud Data Center Region in Querétaro is the first of its kind in Mexico and Latin America. In that sense, this center will be part of one of the largest cloud infrastructures in the world. It will provide companies and organizations with local access to scalable, highly available and resilient cloud services.

Also, located in the Querétaro metropolitan area, this facility will enable data residency and processing. This could revolutionize the operation of sectors such as finance, government and healthcare.

On the other hand, the center offers small and medium-sized companies, as well as entrepreneurs, the opportunity to modernize in key technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, payments and streaming.

This project is part of a plan announced by Microsoft in February 2020, when the company revealed its intention to invest US$1.1 billion to drive digital transformation in Mexico. It is worth mentioning that in 2021, it was confirmed that the new Data Center Region would be established in Querétaro.
