Diveo Strikes Deal With Brazil's Gemelo

The internet infrastructure provider Diveo Broadband Networks, Inc. has reached an agreement to market integrated storage solutions in Latin America through an alliance with Brazilian counterpart Gemelo.

Diveo says it will offer storage solutions powered by Gemelo as a managed service to its customers, as part of a push to become "pan-regional."

The agreement calls for Gemelo to become a Diveo customer and utilize Diveo's internet infrastructure. As an example, the Washington, D.C.-based company said Gemelo will locate its storage points of presence (POPs) in Diveo's internet data centers in São Paulo, Mexico City and Buenos Aires.

Gemelo will also access the internet through Diveo's pan-regional Latin American IP network and utilize Diveo's Digital Business Access service to connect its storage POPs to Gemelo customers.

The company has one of the largest IT footprints in the region with operations in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Venezuela and Mexico City. The deal between the two companies was announced today.

Forrester Research projects that enterprises will increase their average online storage capacities by a factor of ten over the next five years, Diveo noted in its announcement.

The company is working with managed storage providers such as Gemelo to provide customers with outsourced storage utility services to meet marketplace demand, it said.

Diveo has internet data centers in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and Miami.
