Who we are
We believe that with the growth in data usage and storage and the broader digital transformation of businesses and the public sector in Ethiopia, Raxio Data Centre will be a centre-piece of infrastructure supporting the growth and digitalisation of the Ethiopian economy.
When it opens in Q1 2021, the Data Centre will be the first of its kind in Ethiopia, operating as a carrier-neutral facility, and meeting the international Tier III standard. Upon final phase completion, the Data Centre will be able to house around 400 racks and be able to provide 1.5MW of IT power to ensure the equipment housed within it operates optimally, 24/7, in a fully safe, secure and redundant environment. Raxio Data Centre is being built on the outskirts of Addis Ababa, ideally located for addressing both the primary and disaster recovery needs of its customers. Being along one of Ethiopia’s principal fibre routes also ensures optimal connectivity.
Raxio has selected Future-tech, from the UK, as best-in-class partner for the design and construction of its facility and will assemble a seasoned and experienced management team to operate and run it on commissioning.
