Data Centres Africa

Powered by Data Center World

Accelerating the development of Africa’s data centre industry

About Data Centres Africa

Enterprise digital transformation has rapidly increased demand for cloud services and data centres in Africa. In a world dominated by disruptive technologies and data analytics, robust and scalable IT infrastructure is an ever more critical foundation of Africa 4.0.

Powered by Data Center World, the leading conference and exhibition for Data Centre and IT infrastructure professionals, Data Centres Africa will deliver expert guidance some of the hottest topics. 


Keynote: Getting your data center under control

In this session, learn how Intel software tools enable real-time monitoring and precise management to lower operational costs and optimize infrastructure for today even as you’re forecasting for tomorrow.

The Data Centre Market Potential for Africa

Research shows that the African continent – particularly South Africa – is becoming an attractive place for the top global data center providers to build new facilities. In addition, many global businesses are routing workloads through the continent to decrease latency, improve overall performance, and reduce cost.

Panel: Public and Private Sector Efforts to Boost the Data Centre Industry

If Africa is going to become more of a leader in global data centre capacity, it will take a concerted effort by government and private industry to invest in, design, and build the infrastructure needed to support it. On this panel, industry leaders discuss how to turn ideas into action.
