Panel: Site selection strategy – where would you put your next African data centre?

10 Sep 2024
Radisson Blu Conference Stage
Datacloud Africa

With the data centre market in Africa poised to grow at an unprecedented rate, getting it right when it comes to location is paramount. Navigating partnerships for invaluable local insights, the nuanced choice between greenfield and brownfield, and seizing opportunities to positively impact communities present strategic challenges. Ensuring scalability, understanding geographical factors, and navigating land leasing intricacies further complicate the terrain. The panel will explore:

  • How is the site selection checklist evolving?
  • What is being done to secure power for sites?
  • How is interconnection point proximity impacting decision-making?
