wingu.africa, the pan East African data center operator, broke ground on Monday 11th January to establish Ethiopia’s first-ever Carrier Neutral Hyperscale Data Center Park, located in the ICT Park, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
wingu.africa has close to ten years’ experience of developing and operating data centers in Africa and an international track-record with many of the leading global telecoms companies as customers. The group developed and owns and operates the multi award-winning Djibouti Data Center, the most connected location on the African continent. The new Addis Ababa hyperscale facility and a second planned facility in Adama will complement the group’s success in delivering excellence, benefitting customers and the dynamic young population of Ethiopia.
The Addis Ababa facility is located at the Addis ICT Park on 15,000 SQM of land, allowing wingu.africa to deliver flexible solutions to businesses requiring secure and fortified server hosting for their critical services and operators wishing to have autonomy through secure “white space” or their own separate modules on site; while benefiting from wingu.africa’s extensive experience and vibrant commercial ecosystem within the Data Center Park and across its multiple facilities.
Content delivery networks, cloud providers, and financial services companies can rest assured of secured and uninterrupted services that are mission-critical for their business and customers.
Data centers are key to providing fast, affordable internet, allowing all customers to enjoy the access and power of the internet for their business, social and personal needs.
wingu.africa’s co-founder and CEO Mr Anthony Voscarides said: “We are delighted to be part of Ethiopia’s ICT development with our new Hyperscale Data Centres. Our commitment to Ethiopia is to provide a safe, secure and stable platform for the many talented Ethiopians, including young entrepreneurs with vision and ambition. wingu.africa is also committed to developing the sector and contributing to the country with incentives and social programs.”
“Ethiopia represents a natural extension of our group’s other facilities, and we are delighted to be the first to break ground with a plan to launch commercial service later this year.”
wingu.africa acknowledged the support of the Ethiopian Investment Commission and its investment is a strong show of support for the country’s economic development and enabling of the critical ICT sector, providing benefits to all people in the country.
