Sub-Saharan Africa Datacenter Trends, Investment Strategies, and Deployments

This IDC Market Perspective takes a detailed look at the latest developments in the datacenter market in Sub-Saharan Africa. It highlights some new construction projects and the expansion of existing datacenter facilities in the region. Importantly, the report outlines some of the key partnerships and strategies being implemented by existing datacenter operators in the market."The datacenter market in Sub-Saharan Africa is currently experiencing significant growth due to increased investment in infrastructure development by both local and foreign datacenter operators. The COVID-19 pandemic was the initial catalyst of this rapid growth, as organizations adopted a remote working environment due to lockdowns at the time. Subsequently, organizations have adopted hybrid working environments, resulting in the need for a hybrid cloud or multicloud approach. This has driven demand for datacenter services among both enterprises and cloud providers."— Derrick Chikanga, research manager, IT services, IDC Middle East and Africa
