Telkom Kenya completes US$1.5 million datacentre project

Telkom Kenya completes US.5 million datacentre project

Telkom Kenya has completed its US$1.5million datacentre project in Nairobi, integral to the company's network infrastructure expansion program.

The project was established to strengthen the company's hosting and colocation capacities.

Aldo Mareuse, CEO of Telkom Kenya, said the datacenter would enable the company to more effectively meet a growing demand from Kenyan and sub-regional cloud-based services companies.

"The datacenter offers our customers three redundant fibre optic lines (TEAMS, EASSy and LION2), guaranteeing back-up and access to international capacity for competitive services," he said.

The datacenter spans an area of 1160m², features a computing capacity of up to 4KW of IT load for 30 rack servers and a rack area designed to accommodate up to 52U rack height with adjustments on floor footprint.

The facility is sited in Nairobi's Upper Hill and occupies a facility at Milimani Exchange along Bishop Road.

The site is served by three diverse fibre routes to ensure uptime through redundancy to three different exchanges: Westlands, GPO Nairobi and South-Hill Exchanges in Nairobi.

Mareuse added that the facility provides access to the national fibre backbone and metro capacities across Kenya. It also offers turnkey solution support for public and private cloud deployment and multi-channel access to services.

Joe Mucheru, Cabinet Secretary at Kenya's Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies, described the project as a timely investment for Telkom Kenya, particularly in terms of data security.
