    Grimaldi Forum


    A special summit colocated with Datacloud Global Congress, Grimaldi Forum, Monaco
    Africa Theater – 8 June 2016.

    In this timely event exploring 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, legal counsel and solutions companies and consultancies engaged in the sector.

    The data center industry in Africa has been progressively expanding in recent years with investment in construction, prefabricated and containerized facilities by enterprises and third party owners. However, across the continent the lack of continuous power supply dogs development of facilities and their ability to meet international standards. There is also a huge lack of capital, reliable internet connectivity and the scale of dark fibre infrastructure required is immense.

    But change is afoot. The Cisco Global Cloud Index predicts that through 2018, the Middle East and Africa region is expected to have the highest cloud traffic growth rate (54 percent compound annual growth rate [CAGR]) globally. It also predicts that IP traffic for the region will reach 9.4 exabytes/month by 2019, 44 percent CAGR, and 6.3-fold growth.
