Datacenters located In Kenya

Datacenters located  In Kenya

Data Centres in Kenya have become a major requirement for the environment that is rapidly embracing cloud computing. Data Centres are facilities that are used to house computers, ensuring provision of reliable power supply and back up, high speed internet connection with redundant links, cooling systems, and other general maintenance services thus helping to maintain cloud services online.

Establishment of Data Centres in Kenya has less to upsurge in availability and uptake of cloud servers, Virtual Private Servers, and dedicated servers. Data Centres lease space to third parties who locate their servers in the premises, thus allowing these people to deploy the servers fast and quickly without worrying about peripheral costs.

There are several data Centres in Kenya, ranging from tier 1 to tier 3. Without a second mains power provider, Kenyan data centres are not fully tier 4, but the country has a reliable power supply from renewable sources, making power shortage a peripheral concern in running data Centres. Many companies have come up to utilise these data Centres in Kenya to offer services like cloud servers, Virtual Private Servers and dedicated servers, and the growing competition in this area has led to competitive rates and provision of quality services.

The Data Centres have also contributed to rapid growth of companies offering cloud services. This is also aided by the fact that Kenya has a nationwide optical fiber network by several service providers, and also several undersea optical fibre cables that connect the country to major internet exchange gateways in Europe and the rest of the world. This makes the data hosted in Kenyan Data Centres easily accessible, and also making the destination a favorite location for collocating servers.
