The Rise of the African Cloud


The African cloud has arrived. By the end of the year 2019, at least four hyperscale data centers will become operational in the African continent, offering hundreds of enterprise and consumer services from within Africa’s shores. For African markets, cloud, virtualization and the broader evolution towards serverless computing are the most disruptive technology developments since the mobile payment revolution. And our new research breaks it all down.

Xalam’s Rise of the African Cloud is arguably the most comprehensive analysis available on African private and public cloud services markets – a reference research for all stakeholders in African cloud markets.

The African data center rises


The African data center is still rising. While variations between markets are substantial -as always-, the broader pattern is unmistakable. More enterprises are adopting colocation services. Global CDN players are bulking up their African edge node presence. And crucially, the hyperscale cloud is here, transforming the very nature of African colocation markets.

It’s been long in the making – but Xalam’s biennal analysis of the African data center investment opportunity is here – a reference research for all stakeholders in African digital infrastructure markets.
