One edge data center in Miami was apparently not enough. EdgeConneX has announced the construction of a second facility in Miami.
The new facility is located in Miami Gardens and will offer direct access to a host of nearby submarine cable systems via dark and lit fiber. Those cables of course are the key jumping off points to the markets of the Caribbean and of South and Central America. The new location is 10 miles north of the NAP of Americas, the former Terremark facility that part of Verizon's data center sale to Equinix.
EdgeConneX has been busy expanding across the Atlantic in to Europe, but it sees significant growth potential within its existing US markets. As a gateway to Latin America, Miami is a bit of a special case, but probably won't be the first market in which they add a second facility.
