IXAfrica has announced a major Deal with Tilisi to establish its second data center campus in Nairobi, Kenya
In the deal, IXAfrica signed a term sheet to purchase 11 acres of prime land for the construction of its data, a milestone for both companies and a big leap forward in advancing the data center infrastructure in East Africa.
Guy Willner, Chairman of IXAfrica, said that the expansion reaffirms the company’s commitment to the region and belief in its immense potential for growth and technological advancement
“With Tilisi’s industrial parks, high-quality development, reliable power and water supply, fresh air, and advantageous altitude for free cooling, this new campus will provide an ideal environment for our data center operations. With latency sub-5ms between the two campuses the distance satisfies the maxima and minima requirements for hyperscale deployments.”
On his part, Graeme Reid, Tilisi CEO said; “Our collaboration with IXAfrica is a testament to Tilisi’s appeal as an investment hub for developers. This partnership bolsters our standing as a premier infrastructure developer in the region,” Reid stated.
Due diligence is currently underway to determine the exact size of the campus, with initial estimates pointing to an impressive 30MW+ facility.
The new data center campus in East Africa is expected to cater to the increasing demand for cloud computing services, digital transformation, and edge computing applications in the region.
By providing state-of-the-art infrastructure, green power availability, advanced security measures, and efficient cooling solutions, IXAfrica is poised to play a pivotal role in bolstering East Africa’s technology landscape.
