DDC launches Tier 3 data centre in East Africa
The Djibouti Data Center (DDC), a joint venture between Djibouti Telecom and Djibouti Data Center SARL, a group of local and international investors, has announced the commercial launch of a Tier 3 data centre facility in Djibouti City.
The DDC is designed to leverage Djibouti’s strategic position in the region as the major hub for submarine fibre-optic cable systems connecting Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, to Africa. The new data centre is collocated close to Djibouti Telecom’s new cable landing station and will offer international telecoms carriers and content delivery network (CDN) providers ‘neutral’ collocation facilities, internet exchange (IX), and other enhanced services in one of the fastest growing regions in the world.
The DDC added that it has already been selected by MTN Group to provide cable cross connect and backhaul services from the cable landing station in Djibouti.
