Invest in Datacenter Africa collocated at Datacloud Europe - June 8 2016 Monaco
London/Monaco, 20 April 2016 – The inaugural summit for African data center hosting and cloud investment will take place at Datacloud Europe in Monaco on June 8th 2016 (www.datacloudcongress.com/africa) Following the huge interest in the event from Middle Eastern investors and enterprises the summit will also assess the energy, scalability, security, architecture and software challenges confronting data centers, and cloud transition for Africa with Middle Eastern collaboration.
This timely event will explore the next phase of data center development across the continent. Invest in Data Center Africa uniquely brings together the leadership of operating companies across the continent together with investors, hedge funds, private equity firms, banks, financiers, regional growth funds, government investment agencies, and legal counsel. Africa’s data sector is exploding with more and more companies choosing to host within their own borders. With its proximity to the horn of Africa and much of the continent the Middle East is perfectly placed to be part of what has been described as The Data Gold Rush.
As BroadGroup managing direct Philip Low has noted “This year’s Invest in Datacenter Africa is the first event of its kind. It will be tailored for international and Middle Eastern investors who are interested in expanding their reach throughout Africa, and for Middle Eastern companies interested in establishing an African presence.”
Subsea cabling is an important factor in driving further data center investment in Africa and is expanding between the continent and the Arabian Peninsula. Further investment is occurring as African financial institutions and government bodies in particular seek to ensure their data centers more resilient. Oil rich countries such as Nigeria and Angola have some of the most advanced data centers on the continent. The congress will also debate issues relating to the further collaboration between Africa and the Middle East.
The summit is a key opportunity to explore industry insights and the reality of business collaboration between Africa the Middle East.
Join the world’s leading public and private sector professionals for educational sessions, a world-class conference, and networking. The program will highlight business opportunities in Africa and the Middle East in light of the data global expansion throughout the region.
