MainOne ready to unveil new carrier-neutral data centre in Ghana

MainOne, has announced it is set to launch the Appolonia Data Centre of its subsidiary, MDXi in Accra, Ghana before the end of June 2021.

The 100-rack Appolonia Data Centre, located 20 kilometers from the capital, will expand MainOne’s already robust infrastructure and service profile in West Africa.

The facility will offer customers the opportunity to host infrastructure in a facility guaranteed to provide high levels of availability and rich connectivity ensuring 24/7 online delivery of services to businesses.

Commenting, Gbenga Adegbiji, Chief Operating Officer, MDXi said, “Appolonia Data Centre 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 data centre will provide a highly secured, resilient and scalable solution for our customers,” he added.

Increasing demand for colocation and interconnection services by multinationals and businesses seeking shared services for their ICT resources in the region necessitated the construction of the facility.

The Appolonia Data Centre has been fitted with high-definition CCTV motion detection cameras, laser-based perimeter intrusion detection systems, and three levels of security barriers before access to computer rooms.

Access to the data centre is restricted to pre-authorized individuals with identification only and there is an access management system to record access history for audit purposes.

“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,” noted Emmanuel Kwarteng, Country Manager, MainOne Ghana.

After the unveiling, the MDXi Appolonia Data Center will be open to multi sector businesses and industries across Ghana.
