Wingu.africa, one of the premier data center operators in Africa, broke ground in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) this week for the country’s first carrier neutral, hyperscale data center. The operator acquired land for the center in the ICT Park located in the capital.
Wingu.africa has been operating in Africa for more than 10 years and has established data centers all over the continent and has strong working relations with many other leading international telecom operators. The organization developed and operated the Djibouti Data Center, one of the most connected locations in Africa.
The involved parties in the establishment of the Addis Ababa data center also plan to build a second center in Adama. The two data centers are expected to benefit the youth by providing access to up to date and relevant data resources for social and economic development.
Businesses are also expected to profit immensely from the data center as it will provide them with fast and secure server hosting for their critical services. Independent modules are also going to be provided to those who require them as ‘white space’ for secure and fortified data services.
Content delivery, cloud computing, and financial services companies are expected to be the main beneficiaries of the data traffic that is going to be facilitated by the center.
