Dublin, September 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Latin America Data Center Rack Market – Industry Outlook & Forecast 2022-2027” Report has been added to offering.

Investments in the Latin American data center rack market are led by Brazil, which accounted for around 50% of industry investments in 2021.

The growth of cloud computing and growing interest from global cloud service providers will also increase demand for OCP-scale infrastructure, including taller, deeper and wider rack solutions among the sprawling downtown facilities. of data.

The adoption of HPC technologies such as AI, big data, and IoT plays an important role in the development of advanced OCP-scale rack infrastructure, including converged and hyper-converged infrastructure.

Vendors such as Huawei Technologies, Cisco Systems, Delta Electronics, Schneider Electric, and Vertiv are also part of the OCP community. They continually innovate their infrastructure offerings to match current industry trends and demands.


OCP-scale infrastructure adoption is gaining momentum

Organizations have begun to adopt OCP infrastructure designs. To support the adoption of OCP designs, the OCP community introduced Open Rack standards, which enable the development of rack infrastructure and facilitate the flexible assembly of OCP IT infrastructure solutions.

The development of cloud data centers by hyperscale operators, such as AWS, Microsoft and Google, will adopt OCP rack infrastructure in data centers. Additionally, organizations that are not part of the OCP community are involved in adopting OCP infrastructure solutions from authorized vendors.

Taller, deeper and wider racks are seeing growth in adoption

Almost all rack vendors incorporate taller racks into their portfolio, including taller servers and network cabinets than the industry standard 42U configuration.

In recent years, the adoption of rack infrastructure has also included UPS systems that are primarily 2U configurations and modern IT equipment that requires multiple cable connections and generates more heat. These requirements lead to the acquisition of wider and deeper racks in data centers.

Many data center operators plan to optimize space and improve efficiency at their facilities. This leads operators to opt for taller, fuller and deeper custom rack solutions based on their space and operational requirements.

Adoption of rack standards, such as the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)

The IEC 60297 standard specifies the mechanical structures that house electronic equipment, including the mechanical structures of 19-inch data center racks. This standard has several subparts that elaborate the dimensions of frame parts such as front panels, chassis, subframes, and associated units such as injector/extractor handles, keys, and alignment points.

Suppliers to the Latin American data center rack market, such as Eaton, offer rack cabinet solutions that are IEC approved.

segmentation analysis

The Latin American data center rack market has several rack infrastructure providers globally, offering a variety of rack cabinets with heights below 42U and above 42U. Most data center operators in the region adopt rack cabinet sizes between 42U and 47U. Carriers like Equinix adopt rack heights ranging from 42U to 47U.

Most of the investments were made by colocation data center operators which helped significant growth in the market in 2021 compared to last year.

The number of rack cabinet shipments grew more than 3% in 2021, thanks to the increasing construction of data centers in the region, along with the expansion of existing facilities.

The share of the 42U to 47U rack unit height industry is growing in terms of investments, aided by growth in the construction of data centers with power capacity of up to 5MW in ever larger locations.


In terms of shipments, the market is led by Brazil with a market share of around 53% in 2021, followed by Mexico with a share of around 27%. Other countries such as Colombia, Chile and other countries collectively contributed 20% of the market share in 2021.

Latin America data center rack market shipments are expected to grow at an absolute growth rate of around 77.62% between 2021 and 2027, with Chile expected to grow at a CAGR of around 12.34 % during the forecast period.


The market has several providers of data center rack infrastructure, including Austin Hughes Electronics, Chatsworth Products, Cisco Systems, Delta Electronics, Belden, Eaton, Fujitsu, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Panduit, Schneider Electric, and others.

The data center rack market is moving towards the adoption of custom rack infrastructure solutions, reducing the adoption of off-the-shelf racks. In addition, initiatives like OCP are driving mega and hyperscale enterprise data center operators to adopt open rack designs. Colocation providers are increasingly designing their facilities using available rack systems.
