Brazilian DataCenter

What is the possibility of creating data centers in Brazil or in Latin America? The latency is high here!

But would also like to congratulate you for the quality and support!

    Hey DO strategy guys, take a look at Equinix Datacenter in Sao Paulo, they have recently opened a new giant datacenter with an awesome infrastructure and very aggressive pricing on the São Paulo region here in Brazil. I think DO could do a colocation deal with them and set something up relatively quick. They have probably the best Datacenter infrastructure in the country and their colocation pricing is very aggressive indeed. check it out: https://www.equinix.com/locations/brazil-colocation/sao-paulo-data-centers/sp3/

    I'd like to add that if it's easier, please open in another South American country. Brazil has been known for it's horrible incentive towards companies, and maybe in another near country would be easier, since brazillian governament is so archaic.

    Also agree there should be, living here I do understand there are many obstacles on setting up business here, but as someone who needs a close infraestructure as many other clients of DO it would surely have a great return! I really liked the service here, even tho I had to move to AWS due to the latency problem. I would be surely willing to come back with you guys if the was a either Brazil-based or South American datacenter.

    Hi support, Luis from fatorbinario here.

    If you guys offer Brazilian datacenters I can triple the public that I already sent to you in a few months.

    But do this when you can, it's great as it is but it could be amazing.

  • Rogério Vitiello commented
    September 11, 2018 19:19

    In Brazil we only have AWS and IBM Blue Mix (Softlayer). One is impossible to plan how money you will spend, since all things are charged individually, and is easy to get some surprises. Other is expensive (+$25 for a very simple VPS). For small projects, testing VPS, we have no option.

  • Caio Ferreira Silva commented
    September 11, 2018 19:19

    I haven't had the time to test and compare yet, but there is a now a similar VPS provider with roughly the same price as DO: http://www.locaweb.com.br/cloud/vps-locaweb/

    Customer service and panel functionalities are eons from being as we have with DO, though.

    As most of my projects target Brazilian users, latency is important. I always turned a blind eye because DO hadn't no real competitors here, but I am seriously considering migrating out, as hurtful as it is, and I surely am not the only one thinking about it. This sort of "loyalty" in business can only go so far.

    Also, somehow Locaweb managed to provide this kind of service with a really competitive price. It proves it is not impossible. Maybe DO should take advantage of our economy crisis and make an investment, even because the crisis is not hitting I.T. so hard as it is hitting other fields.

    t's totally necessary to have a DO datacenter in Latin America! (+1)

  • Diogo Casado commented
    September 11, 2018 19:19

    Well, It's true latency is high but around 160ms tops if you stay at capital cities (Sp/Rj). The main problem is that latency inside the country is already huge if you compare to the one going oversea. Good news is that a new cable will be deployed connecting Sp directly to Nyc. That's why we chose to focus our droplets at Nyc datacenters. This could drop the latency up to 30%.

    Having the same (or higher, upgraded) speed we see in miami and united states - With lot LESS delay in ms - would be the greatest product. Take care on local taxes, sometimes high, but a company deal with proper arrengement (Amcham?) will get relief on them. It's foreign invesment, much needed!

  • Anonymous commented
    September 11, 2018 19:19

    Of course we need in Brazil this great provider (top speed and lowest price). Cities Curitiba/PR and Sao Paulo/SP are awsome. But you shall act as DIGITAL OCEAN always do ! One budget (cheap!) and fine provider. Good speed on machines (unixbench) and 1gbps to 10gbps links - so 1TB - 3TB transfers are easy and on bugdget (10-30 dollars).

    This will make killer sales. Because we (and many more) are using now miami data centers (130-204ms away). And 'Azure' sao paulo (4 to 15ms away). And paying them is costly for a south american country.

    Than be careful on price tag (low), and transfer amount (TB bundled). Catch a deal on local bandwith providers and come right away !

    Actually Brazil is the 5th at the rank of countries with most people using internet. Its over 100 million people just in this country (without considering our neighbor latin countries), and this is just half of the population, which means there are more 100 million people waiting for the internet market to expand.

    Besides that, the IT and startup market in Brazil is growing exponentially, and the requirements for faster and better DataCenter provides is bigger everyday.

    I think it would be a win scenario for both DO and developers/startups if we had a DataCenter here in Brazil.

    @Moisey I am commenting here to your reply on the DO Blog post about new datacenter locations (https://www.digitalocean.com/blog_posts/digitalocean-announces-second-amsterdam-datacenter-ams2#comment-1150764314).

    I understand that you delayed plans to open a DC in Brazil, due to several hurdles. The difficulty of doing business in Brazil is well known even to locals. They even invented an expression to sum up all those hurdles of doing business: "The cost of Brazil". Key to doing business is knowing the local conditions, in special the hidden solution to obstacles. I'll try to contribute with some insights:

    Regarding the cost of network connectivity, the impact of higher fees might be reduced if you consider peering on local IXPs. In Brazil we have a very serious non-profit organization operating IXPs (internet exchange) in several metropolitan areas. They are very serious engineers, partnering regularly with AIX (Amsterdam) and LINX (London). Assuming your DC is in the city of São Paulo, you would get almost free traffic to a huge portion of the citizens of Brazils biggest metropolitan area, as major ISPs peer. It is worth researching on the IXP option, as there are network operators, interconnecting a few IXPs, for rates lower than the usual upstream provider. So effectively you can reach a considerable part of the Brazilian households without using bandwidth of an upstream provider. The site of the IXP operator: http://ptt.br (not in english). Their contact: info@ptt.br

    As to datacenter options, I personally know the facility of ALog, an Equinix company (http://www.alog.com.br/?lang=en). They also host a POP of the São Paulo IXP (internet exchange). So peering is simple.

    Regarding the VISA bureaucracy it is not unusual to contract a specialized lawyer to assist when dealing with public administration. This is vital for importations, but also common for VISA issues.

    The taxation of imports is very well known. This way Brazilian government tries to incentive national production. Several IT companies have national fabs. For example Dell, HP, IBM, produce a good part of their server lines in Brasil. Maybe there is already a national production of your approved hardware. Besides avoiding taxation, choosing a national product you get access to competitive financing by BNDES, the national develpment bank (http://www.bndes.gov.br/SiteBNDES/bndes/bndes_en/). At least the local Dell representation assists in this type of financing.

    I am not an expert on the Brazilian datacenter market, but hope to have contributed. Knowing the Brazilian business landscape in general, I highly recommend to work with a local consultant, as the best alternatives for a given project use not to be obvious and the difference in outcome might be huge.

    IMO, I think DigitalOcean should charge the double of the US price. Currently, Amazon EC2 micro instance (600mb memory) in Sao Paulo is costing $20/month.

    $10 for a 512mb droplet look very good :)

    @Moisey I'm not sure if this might help but, Valve and recently "League of Legends" found out an affordable way to place servers in Brazil, maybe a good idea to "talk to then" or "figure out what they choose".

    We know that right now, the status quo here is to charge a lot for not so good services... as an example, the major cloud hosting charge 10x more what you guys do (a 512mb VPS on UOL HOST or Locaweb in Brazil is the equivalent of 50USD).

    Doing all you guys can to beat that price will give massive market share

    Hello Moisey Uretsky,

    I really agree about complication and expensive services in Brazil. But I would recommend at least, study other countries in Latin America, which may support it and be less expensive. I don't think there are a Tier 3 datacenter, but something near that could be good to su.

    Thanks.

  • Moisey Uretsky commented
    September 11, 2018 19:19

    We've been working with providers in Brazil and the situation is rather complicated. There are a number of concerns from making sure that the facility is in fact a Tier3 datacenter that has the required power redundancy, cooling, and infrastructure to support our rack density.

    The next issue is the lack of connectivity in Brazil and the unfortunately extreme high prices that carriers are charing. The costs are 15-30x higher in Brazil for connectivity than in the US and EU.

    Lastly, we are dealing international requirements such as setting up a corporate entity and resolving the import legislation for shipping equipment on site.

    Thanks

    The location that we are looking into is Sao Paulo.

    So far we have seen that datacenter costs are 2x - 3x higher then the US.

    Bandwidth costs unfortunately currently are 10x-15x higher than the US.

    The other main issue that we are looking into is to understand the infrastructure and resilience of the facilities to see if they have the appropriate measures in place for redundant power, backup power, generators, cooling, etc.

    "Good and Reliable" DCs in Brazil are very expensive, mostly power, IP allocations and bandwidth. Of course there are the cheap ones...
    Also you will have to import the Rack Servers at high taxes or buy locally twice the price... it's a nightmare, i've been there.

    Even if DigitalOcean adjusts the price fairly, in order to keep the reliable service that Digital Ocean has been provided all along, that will be more than fair.
    Digital Ocean is still a lot cheaper than competitors and the reliability and performance is outstanding.

    If you can keep the same prices in Brazil as in the US, that will be something really special.

    We've begun looking into DCs in Brazil and unfortunately Frederico's assessment is spot on the power charges are about 3x higher than what we pay in the US.

    We will be reviewing facilities to see if we can find a good fit and unfortunately with the high cost of power there will be a slightly different price, but I'm sure it will still be very competitive for the industry overall.

  • Frederico Araujo commented

    Currently, the only rock solid hosting available in Brazil I know is EC2.
    besides, EC2 is way more expensive in Brazil, all AWS prices are the highest in Brazil.

    It would be very hard for Digital Ocean to be able to deploy their services in Brazil, because colocation, traffic and IP allocations are seriously overpriced.

    Digital Ocean would have to charge twice or even 3 times, just to be able to provide a datacenter in Brazil.

    nevertheless, if there was Digital Ocean in Brazil, I am very sure they would have a lot of customers, even from all over South America. The demand is high...
