The collaboration sealed by Africa Data Centre and iOCO will heighten competition in the IT services industry, as it will allow iOCO’s customers to benefit from Africa Data Centre’s best-in-class, secure data centre colocation services.
With this collaboration, iOCO and Africa Data Centres can leverage their complementary positions in the market to help customers achieve their digital transformation goals.
According to Africa Data Centres, the partnership will open up its capabilities to a broader range of customers, offering them a wider choice of services to meet their digital goals.
“In today’s challenging business landscape, customers expect more from their data centres and colocation partners than ever before,” said Tesh Durvasula, CEO of Africa Data Centres.
He argued that the skyrocketing demand for everything digital, from cloud, automation, and a range of Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) applications, depends heavily on the modern data centre.
Through this collaboration, iOCO’s customers will benefit from Africa Data Centre’s best-in-class, secure data centre colocation services, which will support iOCO’s leading-edge business transformation services.

This expansion allows us to reach more customers and strategically positions us with geographically dispersed data centres”.

Africa Data Centres provides a true vendor- and carrier-neutral interconnected ecosystem for customers to harness the benefits of iOCO’s offerings through cutting-edge infrastructure capable of handling even the most demanding computing requirements.
