ADDIS ABABA – Data Center operator Raxio says it will launch a hyperscale-ready Tier III carrier-neutral data center in Ethiopia in two months’ time.
The announcement was made during an executive briefing company officials made to executives of Ethiopian financial institutions on Tuesday.
The briefing offered insights to the institutions on how they can leverage Raxio Ethiopia’s robust digital infrastructure to enhance service delivery and position themselves as key players in Ethiopia’s expanding digital economy.
With the increasing need for stable and reliable data storage environments, financial service institutions are relying on data centers to support their mission-critical infrastructure.
