Masiyiwa Unveils a $100m Data Centre facility in Nigeria

Pan African businessman and Econet Group Chairman Strive Masiyiwa says his Africa Data Centres [ADC] has started construction of Nigeria’s biggest Data Centre.

Masiyiwa writes:

We recently acquired a 5 Acre piece of land in Lagos, where we are starting construction of one of the largest buildings in the city. In Data Centre terms it will be the single largest Data Centre in Africa outside South Africa.

Architects and engineers have been working for months, and now the contractors are about to start work.
Our Lagos facility will make it possible for Nigerians to get more Cloud services cheaply.
It will drive investment into Nigeria, and help create thousands of hi tech jobs!

In a few weeks I hope to post [exclusively] on Sasai Watch, a design of the building, and video.
I will be coming to Lagos to see construction progress early next year, and also for the opening Ceremony of phase 1 later in the year!

I will invite many of you to the opening ceremony.
