The ADCA offers a knowledge base with information about all kinds of topics. The knowledge base is accessible for both affiliates and the general public. Furthermore, we offer tools to locate data centers (for example, the data center map). By combining our knowledge with those of our partners, we are able to provide our participants relevant insights and resources.

White Paper Business Continuity

Africa has started its own journey fighting the COVID-19 illness. The continent has some key advantages regarding the current pandemic such as the world’s youngest population and recent experience with epidemics. However, there are challenges too.

It is important that the formal and informal economies can keep functioning, whilst maintaining social distancing. The solution relies on digital tools and ecosystems, all of which are underpinned by data centre infrastructure.

Read more on how the African data centre infrastructure can guarantee business continuity for the continent in this white paper.

To show that Africa’s data centre and cloud services era has begun, the ADCA publishes the first edition of the ‘State of the African Data Centre Market’.

With 85 data centre operators in 54 African countries a population of 1.3 billion, there is huge opportunity for data centre business in Africa. The market has entered a phase of accelerated growth; available supply is expected to double in 2020 from 2019, driven by increased demand for hosting space.
