Togo to inaugurate its first datacenter tomorrow

(Togo First) - Next Friday, June 4th, President Faure Gnassingbé will inaugurate Togo's first data center. This was disclosed by the ministry of the digital economy and digital transformation.

The center, carrier hotel, was built in two and half years. It will be used to house sensitive data in a secure environment and will provide companies with space, energy, and a cooling circuit, allowing them to safely store their servers, network, and storage equipment.

The Tier III+ reliability level infrastructure will be a neutral colocation and sensitive data hosting facility. 

Built over a hectare, by CFAO Technologies, and monitored by APL France, it will also offer the latest tech solutions. 

According to the ministry of the digital economy, “this infrastructure has a major place in the realization of the 2020-2025 presidential roadmap.”

The World Bank injected CFA12.2 billion into the project, in the framework of the West Africa Regional Communications Infrastructure Program (WARCIP). 

On May 21, 2021, the World Bank approved additional financing of $11 million from the International Development Association (IDA) to complete the facility’s construction.
