Sumaré East datacenter construction update

Microsoft began constructing the Sumaré East datacenter in July 2023. The datacenter construction site is located on Estrada Municipal Valencio Calegari in Sumaré, State of São Paulo.

Why datacenters are needed

Datacenters provide the physical infrastructure for the technology we depend on at work and in our personal lives. Whenever you open an app on your phone, join a virtual classroom or meeting, snap and save photos, or play a game with your friends online, you are using a datacenter. Local businesses, government, hospitals, and schools rely on datacenters every day to deliver goods and services to you.

Construction timeline

Datacenter construction began in July 2023 and is estimated to be complete in early 2028. The general contractor Racional is permitted to work Monday through Friday from 7am until 5pm and Saturdays from 7am until 2pm. Infrequently, teams may need to work until 10pm. Racional is currently engaged in the following activities:

  • Installation of metal structure and walls, from September 2023 to mid 2024
  • Substation construction, from October 2023 to late 2024

Together with our general contractor Racional, we will keep neighbors informed in advance of construction work.
