MTN, Africa’s leading cellular telecommunications company, has just completed a Tier III Datacenter located at their Aromire office complex in Ikoyi, Lagos, Nigeria.
The Tier III data centre is a combination of the state of the art containerized and modular in-building solutions. This type of Data Center offers very high flexibility, scalability and compatibility.
Added to this, the modular data centre has high density and low PUE (Power Use Effectiveness) which depicts how efficiently the data centre uses energy.
The Tier classification system is widely accepted as the standardized methodology used in determining the functionality, capacity, availability and performance of Data Centres.
Hence, a Tier III data centre with its redundant and always active power supply (with minimal planned and unplanned downtime), guarantees 99.982 per cent availability.
The Data Center was designed and constructed by Huawei collaborating with Interkel Limited as turnkey construction partners.
The project which commenced late last year is scheduled to be commissioned in March 2019.
This further increases MTN’s data centre footprint in Africa Share.
