Raxio has announced that it has begun constructing its new Kinshasa facility in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The company first announced the data center in March 2021. At the ground-breaking ceremony, Raxio noted that the facility is the DRC’s first Tier III rated carrier-neutral colocation data center. The facility is located at 12eme, Limeter, Kinshasa. The data center is scheduled to come online in 2023. 

The data center will offer 1.5MW of IT capacity. It will also accommodate up to 400 racks. The President of Raxio Group, Robert Mullins, said: “It’s exciting to break ground on the latest facility to become part of the Raxio network. As with all our facilities, our customers and partners have been at the heart of our design process, and it is our aim that the DRC’s first Tier III carrier-neutral data center will provide a critical and missing part of the country’s digital infrastructure.”

Significant members of the DRC government attended the ground-breaking ceremony. Some of these individuals include the Conseiller Spécial du Président de la République en charge du Numérique, the Ministre du Numérique, and the head of the Agence de Developpement du Numerique (ADN).
