The African Multi-Tenant Data Center (MTDC) market is expecting a large amount of growth which will allow them to better penetrate core markets and increase their services.
Currently, African broadband connections are more than 200 million and are expected to grow by 20 percent in the next five years. This, paired with the decrease in fiber connectivity and more cloud-based workloads, in addition to simply more consumers of the digital age, makes the African Internet market a quickly developing one.
The African internet market is desperately seeking to meet the demand, as indicated by the African Data Center Rises-How the Race to the Cloud is Transforming African Colocation Markets report, which brings to light the many areas of growth in this market.
The report investigated how big the market is, the question of whether or not to sell data center assets, etc. and mentioned companies including Amazon Web Service, IBM and Microsoft.
