Africa Data Centres has opened a new floor at East Africa Data Centre (EADC) in Nairobi, Kenya

 The additional floor is expected to provide 500 sqm of rack space for leading cloud service providers, carriers and enterprises to host their business-critical data, cloud-based services, applications and back-end systems in Africa.

Africa Data Centres confirmed the new floor is compliant with the latest security standards, with EADC being the first data centre in East Africa to receive Tier III certification from the prestigious Uptime Institute.

The  secured space for data servers will cover  a total of 2,000 sqm. According to Africa Data Centres, EADC remains the region’s largest and most connected data centre facility, and is interconnected with Africa Data Centres’ other carrier-neutral facilities in South Africa and Zimbabwe.

“The newly opened floor at EADC is a direct response to the huge demand that we’re receiving for colocation and hosting services in Africa. Our state-of-the-art data centre facility in Nairobi has exceeded expectation since it first opened in 2013, and we will continue to serve our expanding customer base with world-class data centre solutions,” said Dan Kwach, general manager, EADC.

“By hosting their data within Africa, businesses in the region have clear visibility on where their customer sensitive data is at all times and which parties have access to that data. This sends out a clear message to consumers that your business is serious about data privacy and protection,” said Kwach.
