Raxio DC News Posts

Roke Telkom is proud to be a customer of Raxio Data Centre. As our business grows it has become imperative to evaluate our need to externalise our data storage, in order to concentrate on our core business. Our partnership with Raxio Data Centre means that we don’t have to worry about uptime and fault tolerance. We are confident that as we scale our business, given the size and rating of the Raxio Data Centre facility, we can serve even more customers without having to worry about network availability and redundancy, because of the guaranteed service uptime for our mission critical services.

As a telecom service provider, our clients are constantly looking for instant access to information and media content, meaning that they share large amounts of data, through a multitude of devices; thus generating large amounts of data, that require a host of client servers. All this requires that we have fast and reliable access to data. Our association with Raxio Data Centre gives us the flexibility to do this seamlessly. Our decision to sign up was further cemented by their ability to function round the clock with the very latest in power back up, environmental controls, fire suppression, and security. We look forward to the commissioning of this state-of-the-art data centre facility.

Chief Commercial Officer, Roke Telkom

Roke Telkom is a Ugandan Carrier that has somehow managed to wrestle with giants in service provision for both Open access and Service Provision to the Ugandan Market. With their Open access network which delivers services to many of the ISPs in the market, Raxio Data Centre hopes to provide a landing point for network aggregation and IP Transit Integration. We are particularly excited to have Roke on board because they come to us with multi fold offerings; as an ISP, Carrier and a Cloud Provider. This addresses the needs of SME’s, Corporates and ISPs that we need to build the unique eco system that Raxio Data Centre will host in its environment. We look forward to being part of the amazing journey that Roke has been so far.
