Raxio has opened a new data centre in Mozambique, Raxio MZ1. This is the first Tier III Uptime Certified data centre in the country. 

Raxio MZ1 is located in Beluluane Industrial Park (MozParks), on the outskirts of Maputo. The company says this data centre meets both primary and disaster recovery needs of its customers, and benefits from the Park’s robust power and connectivity infrastructure, ensuring a stable and highly connected operating environment for the facility. It is strategically located near three subsea cable landings, including the recent, high capacity 2Africa cable. 

“We are proud to be opening Mozambique’s first Tier III, hyper-scale ready data centre and are excited to be a critical cornerstone in supporting the growth of the country’s evolving digital economy, helping to accelerate the adoption for digital tools and services across industries,” said Robert Mullins, CEO of Raxio Group. “The flagship Raxio MZ1 facility is a hub of connectivity and digital exchange, with eight of the country’s top telecom operators and connectivity providers already signed up. Delivering this exceptional facility is testament of our capabilities and of our commitment to provide our customers in Mozambique with the world-class infrastructure their businesses require.”

“With this launch, Mozambique is finally set to benefit from having its own world-class data centre facility and Raxio’s dedicated operational experience to support the country’s continued development in this digital age,” commented Emidio Amadebai, Raxio’s General Manager in Mozambique. “Mozambique’s location positions Raxio MZ1 ideally to accommodate the needs of both local customers and the those in the wider Southern African region.”

Raxio continues to see strong momentum behind the roll-out of its pan-African digital backbone. Its Uganda data centre opened in late 2021, followed by Raxio Ethiopia earlier this year. 2024 will see the Mozambique launch quickly followed by launches in Côte d’Ivoire and DRC in Q3 2024, and Angola before the end of the year, bringing the total live facilities to six.
