Onix Data Centre Announces Azure Stack Partnership following Africa Tech Festival

Last week the Onix Data Centre team, led by Onix CEO Michael Nahon, attended the 25th edition of the Africa Tech Festival in Cape Town, South Africa. The festival represents the intersection of technology innovation and enterprise digital transformation, and this year’s theme was Connectivity Infrastructure and Digital Inclusion, emphasising on topics such as Service Provider Technology, Mission Critical Technologies and 5G for Africa.

The Africa Tech Festival is a vital inclusion into our annual calendar, and after a two-year hiatus because of global lockdowns, we were excited to be back there to meet and build relationships with some of the biggest players in the African tech infrastructure scene. The Onix team focused on Cloud service offerings as well as IP Transit and IXP services to the Ghana market.

After fruitful discussions with Liquid Intelligent Technologies, Onix will offer cloud services in Ghana from Q1 2023, through Microsoft Azure Stack. Having Azure cloud services in Data Center is an important part of the DC eco system. “The Azure platform can offer IaaS and PaaS giving enterprise organisations the ability to the following benefits: – Cost, Scalability & Flexibility, Security, Governance & Compliance, Data Sovereignty, back up & DR. Azure will attract the large enterprises into the Onix facility”, explained Michael Nahon, Onix CEO.

Additionally, several major IP Transit and IXP service providers, securing enhanced competitive access to world markets, will take up residence in the Onix facility in Accra, allowing parties to connect via Onix’ already installed IXP. More details regarding the IP Transit and IXP service provider offerings will be released imminently.

The festival was an overwhelming success ensuring growth in the value eco system. Onix hopes to also release exciting news regarding SD WAN, which monitors the performance of WAN connections and manages traffic to maintain high speeds and optimize connectivity to connect global sites and partners, very soon.

With its world class colocation data centres, Onix is swiftly becoming an integral solution to Africa’s need be better connected to the globe. Their first data centre, in Accra, is a Tier IV facility, the first of its kind in the region. With a second facility coming online in 2023 in Senegal, as well as plans to open many more, Onix will assist the region in taking a huge leap forward with local data management and storage solutions at unbeatable quality. Events, such as the African Tech Festival, enable Onix to keep abreast of the dynamic, ever changing data sector services, building relationships that allow Onix to offer clients elite services at competitive prices (neutral), in line with worldwide offerings in more mature locations.
