Raxio’s First Mozambique Facility Paves Way for Enhanced Digital Services Across Southern Africa

By Staff Writer, 29 May 2024

Raxio Group, a leading African data centre company, has inaugurated its first facility in Mozambique, Raxio MZ1, as part of its ambitious $290 million investment plan across the continent.

Raxio MZ1 is Mozambique's first Tier III Uptime Certified data centre, offering a capacity of up to 400 racks and 3MW within its 2,000 square meter space.

Strategically located near three subsea cable landings, including the high-capacity 2Africa cable, Raxio MZ1 ensures exceptional international connectivity. This positioning provides a redundant route ideal for the broader Southern African market. Customers will benefit from cross-connections with both local and international carriers in specially designed meet-me rooms, enhancing local Internet traffic among content providers. The facility is set to attract regional and international service and content providers, promising faster, more resilient, and affordable Internet for Mozambique and the region.

“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,” stated Robert Mullins, CEO of Raxio Group.

Raxio Group, which previously launched data centres in Uganda in 2021 and Ethiopia in 2023, plans further expansions with new facilities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Côte d'Ivoire, and Angola by the third quarter of 2024.
