Sabelo Mabena, Executive Head of Products and Services at Vodacom discusses the rising importance of outsourced data centres in Africa and what to look out for when choosing a partner in the face of the continued power crisis and other challenges.

In this environment, outsourced data centres are becoming increasingly attractive. Vodacom Business offers a range of data centre solutions that can help businesses of all sizes to remain agile and competitive.

There are many benefits to outsourcing your data centre to a provider like Vodacom Business. These include:
- Reliable power: Vodacom’s data centres are powered by a combination of grid power and backup generators, which ensures that your data is always available, even during power outages.
- Cooling: Vodacom’s data centres are cooled using a combination of air conditioning and free cooling, which helps to keep your data cool and prevent overheating.
- Security: Vodacom’s data centres are highly secure, with 24/7 security monitoring and a range of physical and electronic security measures.
- Connectivity: Vodacom’s data centres are connected to the internet via multiple high-speed links, which ensures that your data is always accessible.
- Cost savings: Outsourcing your data centre can save you money on power, cooling, and security costs.
- Free up IT resources: Outsourcing your data centre frees up your IT resources so that you can focus on other areas of your business.
