Carrier-neutral data centre provider MainOne has announced the imminent launch of its new data centre in Appolonia City, Accra.
The Appolonia data centre is 20 kilometres from the centre of the Ghanaian capital. It was built, says MainOne, to cater to the increasing demand for colocation and interconnection services by multinationals and businesses seeking shared services for their ICT resources.
The 100-plus-rack Appolonia data centre offers customers the opportunity to host infrastructure in a facility guaranteed to provide high levels of availability and rich connectivity with a global network of customers, partners and suppliers, thus ensuring 24×7 online delivery of services to businesses.
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 is permitted. Access to the data centre is restricted to pre-authorized individuals with identification only; there is an access management system to record access history for audit purposes.
A dedicated service delivery team will assist customers with onboarding and ongoing service management. Remote hands and eyes support services are available for customers to troubleshoot or perform various maintenance activities to ensure their equipment operates as expected, while allowing customers to focus on their core business.
The data centre will be unveiled in the coming weeks and open to multi-sector businesses and industries across Ghana.
MainOne is now inviting pre-bookings for a tours of the facility.
