The rise of data centres in Africa | Africa Data Centres’ magic moment

Africa Data Centres has recently acquired a very famous data centre facility which is located in Samrand, Johannesburg, South Africa.

This facility is designed and built beyond the highest standards of a data centre facility, becoming a ‘hidden gem’.

“Data centres are at the heart of economic growth in Africa and without them, developing rich and self-sufficient ICT ecosystems cannot happen,” says Stephane Duproz, CEO of Africa Data Centres.

Africa Data Centres’ investment reflects significant confidence in South Africa and further consolidates Africa Data Centres’ position as the continent’s leading data centre and co-location provider.

The unveiling of this remarkable facility coincides with an unprecedented level of demand from national, continental and global customers, expecting the highest levels of quality, security and reliability.

In response to this demand, Africa Data Centres has also started work on a further 10 MW IT capacity facility at its Midrand campus.

From Johannesburg and Cape Town up to Harare, Kigali and Nairobi, the company’s data centres are located at many of Africa’s major regional business and trade hubs.

These locations are rapidly emerging as epicentres for public and private cloud hosting, attracting both multinationals and the largest African enterprises.
