Demand for Data Center is fast rising in the Kenyan Market due to several factors such as need for Business Continuity guaranteed by provision of Disaster Recovery sites, regulations by Central Bank of Kenya requiring every bank to have disaster recovery sites outside their physical premises, increasing levels of ICT utilization in business automation etc. This demand is expected to rise further as enterprises adopt intensive cloud computing services as a mode of offering services to their customers.
With this backdrop, most enterprises are opting to outsourcing the Data Center functions and expecting benefits such as improved ICT service delivery, reduced costs of constructing their own Data Centers and more importantly guaranteeing business continuity.
In view of the above, Mwalimu National has recently constructed a 54 Rack capacity modern Data Center facility at its newly built Headquarters in Upper hill. This facility provides immense potential in hosting Saccos and any other institutions that may require Data Center capacity for either their Production or Disaster Recovery needs.
