Paradise Just Got a Little Better

When you think of the Caribbean, you may think vacation. But for Curaçao Technology Exchange (CTEX), business thrives in paradise.

Curaçao is growing in importance in the international finance and commerce industry, which is why the island needed the ability to support booming business. Built in a carefully planned location, CTEX chose the island of Curaçao to house the Caribbean’s first—and only—tier IV data center.

The lack of technology in the area has been a hindrance to business. Building this new, top-of-the-line data center will enable world-class collocation, security management, archival, disaster recovery, and managed services—allowing customers to rely on CTEX for high-end IT services in ways previously unattainable in the region.

 – Anthony DeLima, Chairman and CEO, CTEX
