Paratus celebrates 20 years in Africa with new DC

06 July 2023

Paratus Group celebrates 20 years in Africa by announcing that it will construct Angola’s first Tier-IV by design Data Center (DC) in Luanda.

This complements the existing two Tier-III by design DCs it already owns and operates in Angola. This is the fifth world-class certified and carrier-neutral DC operated by Paratus Group in southern Africa.

“The new DC will be constructed on a 30,000m2 plot, will have the capacity to house over 2,000 cabinets, and will have a total IT power capacity of more than 10MW. It is a natural evolution after having built other world-class DC facilities in Namibia and Zambia recently. It will be the biggest DC in Angola and not only complements our existing DC offering but will cement our network in Angola as a major hub in the region,” said chief technical officer at Paratus, Rolf Mendelsohn. “Colocation of critical infrastructure in DCs is becoming indispensable to businesses wanting a digital economy advantage. We will support this by providing the necessary infrastructure and services to give businesses what they need to actively compete in the fourth industrial revolution (4IR).”

Paratus owns and operates DCs in Angola, Namibia, and Zambia. All Paratus DCs have been ISO 9001, ISO 27001, and PCI-DSS certified, a commitment to compliance that Paratus believes is unequalled on the African continent.
