Magru is a caching data center located in São Paulo, Brazil. It is currently being set up (task T346722) and is expected to start operations by June 2024.

History

Magru is the first Wikimedia data center not to follow the traditional Data center naming conventions of vendor initials + airport code. In December 2023, after two months of debate (SPGRU, BRGRU, CSGRU, IMGRU, GRU01, AAGRU), SRE DC Ops have decided on Magru as the location's name.[1]
