IX Reach handpicks Djibouti Data Centre for expansion into Africa

Data Centre Afrika

Djibouti Data Centre is now the strategic hub for IX Reach’s African expansion owing to its position as the first and only Tier 3 carrier neutral ecosystem in east Africa with direct access to all major international and regional cable systems connecting Africa to Europe, Middle Eastern, and Asian markets.

“We are very excited about this opportunity to enter the African market and extend our ecosystem via our presence in Djibouti Data centre,” said Simon Vye, CEO at IX Reach.

“Through this partnership, we are now able to offer both our Cloud connectivity and remote peering solutions to tenants in DDC via a single port.”

He also added that the new partnership with DDC is key in continuing the company’s vision of making its full portfolio of solutions including cloud connectivity just one cross connect away on the IX Reach network.

According to IX Reach, DDC tenants will be able to connect directly onto IX Reach’s global network, which will give access via a single port to 50 or more Internet Exchanges and Direct Connect into the industry’s Cloud Service Providers.

IX Reach will also be able to address markets in other African countries improving global connectivity and reach because of Djibouti’s geographical location.

“We are very excited to have IX Reach join the carrier neutral DDC ecosystem, and to be enhancing the DDC’s available network footprint for our global customer base as well as Africa’s growing and emerging markets,” said Anthony Voscarides, CEO of the Djibouti Data Centre.

“In addition to the DDC’s market leading access in east Africa to international and regional fibre cable systems, the new IX Reach PoP will further enhance connectivity options to a diverse network of major Internet Exchange Points, cloud service providers, and data centres across Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific regions.”
