Our Story


Raxio Data Centre is an enterprise grade data centre coming soon to Namanve, Uganda.

Raxio is building and will subsequently operate Uganda’s first enterprise grade Data Centre facility. Raxio was established earlier this year by First Brick Holdings (“FBH”), a Roha Group company, established to build the foundation of the digital economy across Eastern and Southern Africa. Roha is a US greenfield investment company that builds and develops new businesses across Africa.

As the digital transformation of the Ugandan economy continues to accelerate, the data centre is being built to address the vast and growing need for facilities where data supporting this transformation can be stored and processed securely and optimally, 100% of the time. When it opens in Q1 2020, the Data Centre will be the first of its kind in Uganda, operating as a carrier-neutral facility, able to house around 400 racks at full capacity, and meeting the international Uptime Institute Tier III standard.
