Glo to build Nigeria’s largest Data Centre

Telecoms giant and Nigeria’s National Carrier, Globacom has set up state- of-the-arts Internet Data Centres in Lagos to provide co-location, disaster recovery and dedicated hosting services to its clients all over the country.

At the same time the company is expanding its existing data management platform by planning to build another world class facility that will be Nigeria’s Largest Iconic Data Center providing Tier 3 and Tier4 enterprise data services at Abuja , Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory.

The new data centre will provide network based services, applications, equipment and Cloud Services in a highly safe secure and backed up environment.

According to Globacom’s Corporate Chief Information Officer (Information Systems), Mr. Cesar Camara, most of the websites and servers of various Nigerian organizations are hosted with established markets, such as in UK, USA Etc. due to unreliable power supply insecurity and other deficiencies in the system.

“This is why Globacom is stepping in to become one of the top players in the Managed Services Industry across Nigeria and West Africa. We do this by leveraging  on our existing telecoms infrastructure, Glo1 Submarine cable, reliable power supply network, experienced manpower and experience in building State-of-the-art technologies for our existing voice and data telephony  services” he told journalists while conducting them round its Data Centre in Lagos. .

Data Centres, especially the Tier 3 and Tier 4 categories, which provide the highest level of failure proof, redundant, secure and safe environment, fault tolerance, compartmentalization and continuous cooling, are highly valued by most organizations because all mission-critical/real-time applications today depend on server uptimes.

He explained that  Glo’s data centre has achieved 99.99% uptime for all our servers and systems because they are housed in safe, fireproof and secure environment built to international standards with a 24- hour power supply, internet connectivity with data backup capacity and redundancy for all equipment .

The data centre’s products are designed and bundled based on either building and leasing rack space for computing machines or leasing computing space (cloud-based infra or apps stack) and power.
