Regional Executive for West Africa at Africa Data Centres, Dr. Krishnan Ranganath, speaking at a brief ceremony in Accra on June 7, 2024, stated that the partnership will utilize innovative technologies and sustainable practices.

He noted that Africa possesses a unique potential that can be unlocked through technology, with the adoption and investment in modern digital infrastructure akin to those used by global tech giants like Google and Facebook.

“It is crucial for Ghana to have its own data servers rather than relying solely on foreign data servers. Through this collaboration, we have the technical capabilities to provide effective data services, making the Ghanaian market more valuable for investors,” Dr. Krishnan Ranganath said.

“Our partnership with Onix Data Centre allows us to leverage innovative technologies and sustainable practices, enhancing our ability to effectively serve the West African market,” he added.

Dr. Ranganath stressed that the data centres would enable small and medium businesses to utilize cloud-based solutions, reducing storage needs and costs for more efficient operations.

Onix Data Centre’s Chief Executive Officer, Yen Choi, highlighted that the partnership will enhance resilience by decreasing reliance on international submarine cables and ensuring continuous service during interruptions.

“We’re really excited about this partnership opportunity. Onix Data Centre is the most renowned Tier 4 data center in the region, and we only succeed through partnerships. Partnerships at all levels with other data centers, network service providers, and system integrators. We are very excited about this,” he said.

“Because it’s a big step towards the digital transformation journey of every country, especially Ghana. And we are seeing this with the first customer, which is UniCloud. It shows that digital transformation is not waiting for anybody,” Choi concluded.
