The biggest challenges for new-build data centres in Africa have always been the same – connectivity, security and power supply. East Africa Data Centre has been built according to international data centre standards and offers the following:
Connectivity – The data centre is carrier-neutral with connectivity to the backbone and metro fibre offered by a number of carriers including nearly all local Kenyan carriers and international carriers such as Tata, Level3 and Seacom. Organisations using the data centre can choose any of the providers that are present in the premises.
Service availability and redundancy – The data centre is the only one of its kind in East and Central Africa and is designed to meet International Data Centre Standards TIA-942 with 99.982% guaranteed availability.
Security – A sophisticated security and access control system is in place including full-time CCTV surveillance, biometrics, metal detectors, card readers, turnstiles at various access points and staff onsite 24/7/365.
Power Supply and cooling – East Africa Data Centre guarantees to supply contracted AC/DC power for at least 99.982% in each calendar month. Its mains feed of 11KV is backed up by two diesel generators. An N+1 cooling system is operated at the data centre.
Comprehensive On-Site Support – Support for customers is available 24x7x365. Flexibility – A customer can take however much capacity it needs from part of a cabinet to cages, rooms and whole pods. Connections between customers’ own racks can be installed by the customer with no additional cost.
Size – The data centre currently occupies four floors with 500 square metres of useable whitespace and 160 racks per floor making it the largest data centre in East Africa.
