Africa Data Centres, a leading carrier-neutral co-location data centre provider, has announced it will be developing two further facilities in Nairobi
The company has begun the development of a second data centre of up to 20MW of IT load and is securing land for a third facility. This represents an investment of more than US$200mn and will double the country’s data centre capacity. This will develop Kenya as a key digital hub, providing reliable digital infrastructure needs.
In September, Africa Data Centres announced that it plans to build a total of ten interconnected, cloud- and carrier-neutral data centres across the length and breadth of Africa in an US$500mn investment in the continent’s digital transformation.
Stephane Duproz, CEO of Africa Data Centres, said that the two new Kenya facilities are part of this expansion. “Kenya is one of the top data centre markets in Africa and is widely viewed as the gateway to the East African region. There has been a dramatic increase in the adoption of digital services, and the move from on-premises to colocation and managed facilities will be at the vanguard of data centre development in the years to come.”
