The Raxio Group (Raxio), a premier pan-African data centre developer and operator, has announced that it is establishing and investing in ‘Raxio Mozambique’, with a first state-of-the-art, carrier neutral data centre in Mozambique.
Set to be commissioned during 2022, Raxio Mozambique’s first facility will be located approximately 20 km from downtown Maputo at the Beluluane Industrial Park, ideally situated to meet both primary and Disaster Recovery needs of a wide range of customers. The park benefits from ideal power and connectivity infrastructure ensuring a stable and highly-connected operating environment for the facility. Raxio expects all power used by the facility to come from renewable sources, with a combination of hydro-generated grid power and a local solar supply.
In line with Raxio’s other facilities across the continent, Raxio Mozambique’s first facility will be fully equipped with industry best in cooling technology, security, caging, AC/DC power compatibility and redundancy in a 99.982% uptime environment. Customers will be able to cross connect with local and international carriers and other customers in specially designed meet-me rooms. By colocating in Raxio’s facility, customers will benefit from a ‘shared infrastructure’ model, and substantially reduce their operational and capital costs while improving application performance and flexibility.
In addition to providing an ideal environment for the leading industries across Mozambique, Raxio Mozambique will be a critical feature to the country’s digital backbone. Through Raxio’s cross connect service, mobile network operators, ISPs and carriers will be able to interconnect to each other and their customers, reducing the cost of access across the country while stabilising connectivity at improved speeds, at a time when new submarine cables will also be providing Mozambique with enhanced international connectivity.
Raxio has teamed up with Africa Century Real Estate for this project, an experienced local investor and developer of residential, office and commercial properties in Mozambique. As Digital Transformation grows across both the private and public sectors and significant investment expected in the coming years, Raxio has plans to build additional facilities in the country to support this growth.Click below to share this article
