An African technology company called Cassava Technologies has revealed that Kigali, Rwanda will be the site of its first data center.
The data center will be designed specifically to accommodate the region’s expanding demand and will have a 2MW IT load.
According to Tesh Durvasula, CEO of Africa Data Centres, “it is an exciting time.” “Given Rwanda’s strong economic recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic and the Government of Rwanda’s commitment on digital transformation, our decision to create a data center in Kigali was an easy one.”
Africa Data Centers debuted its new 10MW data center facility in Lagos last year and aspires to have a similar impact in an East African nation. Africa Data Centers is the continent’s largest network of interconnected, carrier- and cloud-neutral data center facilities.
“This most recent announcement complements and expands upon our current commitments in Rwanda and other countries in East Africa. Hardy Pemhiwa, Group President & CEO of Cassava Technologies, added, “We will work closely with both public and private firms in Rwanda to guarantee that they can harness the benefits of our data center facility to enable the provision of digital services that Rwandan citizens require.
Durvasula claims that “this new data center delivers to the market three primary benefits — worldwide standards, high quality service, and affordability. Additionally, businesses will save money by developing and maintaining their own facilities.
What Africa Data Centres intends for the Kigali facility.
The largest network of interconnected, carrier- and cloud-neutral data center facilities is called Africa Data Centres. bringing in outside authorities to the continent of Africa. The business asserts that it is a reliable resource for quick and secure data center connections across the African continent.
