The Raxio Group has announced that it has commenced work on its fifth data center in Côte d'Ivoire. This is reportedly the country's first Tier III-standard carrier-neutral colocation data center.

The company held a ground-breaking ceremony at the site, located at the Village of Innovation and Technology (VITIB) in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire. This was attended by members of the Ivorian Government, led by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, alongside local officials, members of Raxio's Board of Directors, the Group's CEO, and Raxio's local team in the Côte d'Ivoire. Partners, customers, and representatives from the media were also in attendance.

"Abidjan is the ideal position for organizations and businesses from across the WAEMU to colocate their mission-critical infrastructure in a professionally managed, highly reliable facility – and Raxio is proud to be building the first of its scale and caliber in the region," said Raxio Group CEO Robert Mullins.

Adding: "Thanks to its location, our facility here at VITIB is planned to incorporate renewable energy feeds allowing us to provide our services in the least impactful way to the environment, our drive to build sustainable projects is strong and we're pleased that Raxio Côte d'Ivoire will provide another example."
