Africa Data Centres Deploys Infrastructure Management Solutions Across its Facilities


Africa Data Centres (ADC) has partnered with TechAccess to implement Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solutions across its facilities.

The DCIM software will be used to measure, monitor and manage all of the IT equipment and supporting infrastructure housed within the data centres. TechAccess will take care of the software, hardware, integrations, project management, and professional services that enhance the functionality of the DCIM platform.

Tesh Durvasula, CEO of Africa Data Centres said that the goal of this DCIM implementation is to provide Africa Data Centres site administrators with a holistic view of each facility’s performance to ensure that all resources, such as energy, equipment and floor space, are used as efficiently as possible.

“This will assist Africa Data Centres and its partners to gain critical insights into their operations, with direct and instant access to real-time data at the click of a button. When combined with analytics, these insights will enable our customers to realise a wide range of savings in terms of time, money and increased productivity,” he said.

The solution will be deployed in Africa Data Centres’ two sites in Johannesburg, and its facilities in Cape Town, Nairobi and Lagos.

ADC is Africa’s largest network of interconnected, carrier- and cloud-neutral data centre facilities. The company has invested heavily in infrastructure across its facilities.

Durvasula says that the company expects to realise investments of over $5 Billion US dollars by 2027.

“This is driven by various factors, such as cloud adoption and increased connectivity across the continent, as the gap in the digital divide is slowly narrowed. DCIM can help the industry realise savings and efficiencies that are key to helping these investments succeed,” he added.
