The medley of smart city initiatives, unprecedented smartphone adoption and rampant digitization efforts are spearheading the growth of the African Datacentre & Cloud market. With the continent’s datacentre market expected to grow at a CAGR of 15% during the forecast period 2021-2026 to reach USD 5 billion, global cloud providers have entered a seesaw battle to capitalize on the ultra-lucrative market and provide their services through the newly established datacentres.

To top it all, data storage localization, increased reliance on cloud-native solutions and renewable power availability in Africa are further fuelling the industry for massive growth. It won’t be wrong to say that the region is all set to witness a new-age diamond rush in the form of its Datacentre & Cloud market.

In an effort to accelerate Africa’s growth, Tradepass is hosting Datacentre & Cloud Infrastructure Summit (DCCI) for the first time in Africa, virtually on 5 – 6 April. The event will attract 1000+ datacentre and cloud professionals from 250+ leading public and private enterprises across Africa. The participation of 30+ top speakers from the industry and 20+ best-in-class global solution providers will make the event all the more crucial to say the least.

Facilitating the best of networking, DCCI 2022 – Africa, will cover cutting-edge topics with its Conference, all the while powering a virtual Exhibition layout to showcase world-class datacentre & cloud solutions.

WHY AFRICA

In the wake of unprecedented technological disruptions, Africa has emerged as a super-poised market for Datacentre & Cloud. With the continent witnessing accelerated growth in bandwidth capacity, IT infrastructure and internet penetration, the growth in datacentres has been phenomenal.

Reports further suggest that Africa needs close to 700 datacentre facilities to meet the growing demand. It comes as no surprise that the most powerful global cloud providers are eyeing the continent to capitalize on the market and establish their dominance in the region.
