First Local Private Data Center Welcomes First Client
RedFox Solutions Group launched its data center, RedFox Modular Data Center (RFETH-MDC01), in the country’s ICT Park located in Addis Ababa with Adane Kassaye, CEO, stating that “our goal is to be a pre-eminent data center provider in the region. Redfox builds its data centers in phases; our first modular data center, which is now operational will be followed by our build-to-suite server farm.
The locations of our disaster recovery sites in Ethiopia and the next three additional modular data centers will be announced by the end of this fiscal year.” The company is founded by 10 Ethiopians and members of the diaspora.
At the launching, RedFox signed its first client, ArifPay Financial Technologies SC. Bernard Laurendeau, CEO, stated that “the word ‘modular’ is important to us since our growth is going to be phase by phase. We will be expanding across Ethiopia and the rest of the region. Since data development is crucial to us, we are thrilled and honored to be a strategic partner of RedFox.”
