Panel: From the rack to the network route - how is Africa's metro edge shaping up?

10 Sep 2024
Datacloud Africa

There are an estimated 40 to 50 live edge compute servers in Africa, and this is projected to increase by a factor of 10 in the next couple of years. The requirement for local data storage and the growth of time-sensitive applications such as Mobile money, telemedicine, and agritech are among the drivers fueling this edge requirement, demanding the processing of large volumes of data where the consumers are located. This session will discuss:

  • What are the challenges on the route to success?
  • Where next for significant edge deployments?
  • How quickly will the market move to the edge?
  • What opportunities can edge data centres unlock for the ecosystem?
