Nigeria’s MainOne is set to launch a new data centre in the capital of neighboring Ghana.

The Appolonia Data Center, part of MainOne’s subsidiary MDXi, built in Accra has been designed to cater to the increasing demand for colocation and interconnection services by multinationals and businesses seeking shared services for their ICT resources across West Africa.

Gbenga Adegbiji, chief operating officer at MDXi said: “Appolonia Data Center is a state of the art facility that is being built to the highest standards required for today’s digital infrastructure and consistent with the MainOne brand.

“With the assurance of high quality of service designed to meet business requirements for digital colocation and cloud infrastructure, the Appolonia (Accra) Data Centre will provide a highly secured, resilient and scalable solution for our customers.

“The operations of the Uptime Tier III certified Appolonia data center will be based on the global MDXI Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) which have been proven with 100% facility uptime of the Lekki Data Centre since its launch in 2015.”

Set for launch before the end of the month, the 100+ rack Appolonia Data Center will open to multi-sector businesses and industries across Ghana.

Emmanuel Kwarteng, country manager of MainOne Ghana, added: “We established this data centre in Ghana to bring the highly sought services which MainOne is known for closer to institutions in the country. 

”We are confident that the data centre will not only deliver state-of-the-art services, but also create jobs and ultimately contribute to the economic growth of Ghana.”

Once operational, MDXi will have a presence in three countries, servicing customers from three data centre facilities in Lagos (Nigeria), Accra (Ghana), and Abidjan (Cote d’Ivoire).
