Following the launch of an all-new offering last month, China Telecom do Brasil (CTB)’s office and board member Luis Fiallo considers how Brazil’s cloud markets are booming, propelling it to new heights - and is now one of the most active cloud markets in Latin America.
The leading provider of telecommunications and cloud computing services announced the launch of eSurfing Cloud services in Brazil - its first in the country - on 15 May. Through on-demand purchases that aim to simplify the process for more targeted service, the new offering provides businesses with the flexibility of accessing public and private cloud services, combined with the security and control of private cloud.
CTB’s eSurfing Cloud services enable enterprises in Brazil to take advantage of the latest cloud technologies, with the added benefit of local support and expertise. With this new offering, businesses in Brazil can optimise their cloud environments, reduce costs, and improve efficiency, all while maintaining high levels of security and compliance. The eSurfing Cloud services in São Paulo will allow customers to connect on a global multi-cloud network of more than nine public cloud nodes, 30 proprietary edge cloud nodes, and more than 200 CDN nodes.
Brazil's cloud boom
Brazil has experienced significant infrastructure investment over the last couple of years in internet connectivity, data centres, and the continued development of 4G and 5G wireless networks,” Luis Fiallo, office and board member at CTB, explained. “These investments ensure reliable access to cloud resources, and these changes only accelerated during the global pandemic. Therefore, it makes perfect timing for investment in the Brazilian cloud market.”
Brazil is one of the most active cloud markets in Latin America, with high demand for the critical services that connect LATAM to the global market. Cloud adoption in Brazil has increased nearly 40% since 2019 and is expected to grow nearly 19% by 2033. While eSurfing Cloud provides customers with access to public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud, and edge cloud, its advantages in cloud-network integration, security, and extensive customisation make it the choice digital transformation accelerator for businesses of any size.
“We are excited to bring our world-class cloud solutions to businesses in Brazil,” Fiallo added. “Our eSurfing Cloud services deliver flexible and scalable solutions that can meet the unique evolving needs of businesses in the region. The launch of this new offering is our continued commitment to helping our customers achieve their business goals and succeed in today's digital landscape."
And investment in Brazil’s cloud market will continue, Fiallo said: “Brazil's enterprises continue adopting new technologies like IoT and smart manufacturing resources to leverage scalable cloud services. Further, the continued cross-border investment between China and Brazil will increase demand for a global cloud platform to link both countries.
“China Telecom's eSurfing cloud platform is one of China's largest hybrid cloud solutions today and an attractive solution for the Brazilian market, where we plan to continue to invest in these services.”
