With this new milestone, MDXI becomes the leading data centre in West Africa with the top five certifications in the industry, being the Tier III Constructed Facility certification, TCCF, the PCI-DSS certification which certifies the data centre to process payment card information, the SAP Infrastructure Services license which certifies the data centre as ideal for running SAP applications and infrastructure, and ISO 27001 and 9001 certifications.

This TCCF certification is awarded by the Uptime Institute as a performance-based evaluation of a data centre’s concurrently maintainable site infrastructure. Tier Certification of Constructed Facility is a progression from Tier Certification of Design Documents (TCDD) and goes beyond the review of paper designs to rigorous on-site testing to root out discrepancies between the actual installation and design.

The multiple certifications of MainOne’s MDXI demonstrate compliance to globally accepted standards on high availability, commitment towards the security and protection of the information assets of the company and its customers, and provide assurance of the quality of the data centre’s infrastructure and ability to react to disruptions due to unplanned activities.

Gbenga Adegbiji, general manager of MDXI, said, “With the increased recognition of Africa as the home of fast-growing economies, it is important that we have the infrastructure required to establish, enhance and sustain effective business performance in today’s global digital economy. Outsourcing of data centre services to a reputable provider such as MDXI ensures businesses can adopt more cost-effective models of consuming technology to allow increased focus on business development and growth.”

MDXI is West Africa’s largest full-scale data centre provider offering colocation, interconnection and cloud services to OTTs and major network, content and financial providers, as well as access to multiple Internet exchange points in Nigeria, Ghana, Amsterdam and London.
