(Ecofin Agency) - AngoNAP Fortaleza, Angola Cables’ Brazil-based data center is now operational. This IT infrastructure was built to meet the hosting and cloud services demands the South Atlantic Cable System (SACS) will generate.
According to Angola Cables, the Carrier Neutral Tier 3 data center Data was built as a Point of interconnection specially designed to receive more undersea cables landing at Fortaleza.
"The AngoNAP Fortaleza facility has far reaching advantages and benefits for CDNs, IXPs, OTTs as well as national and international telecom operators, and content providers seeking to extend and expand their global reach and product offerings between the Americas and Africa," said António Nunes (photo), CEO of Angola Cables.
The Data Centre will help African firms and their neighbours develop and extend their activities in Brazil, Latin America and the USA via the SACS and Monet cables.
"This has many advantages not only in meeting the rising demand for media rich content in the global digital economy, but also in improving links for trade, commerce, inter-governmental co-operation and academic learning on either side of the Atlantic and beyond," Angola Nunes adds.
Currently, the infrastructure spans over 2,100 m2, which can be enlarged to 9,000 m2. Its redundant power supply is 12.5 MVA with 1,000 scalable racks.
