Addax Petroleum, a leading oil and gas exploration and production company with focus on Africa, the Middle East and the North Sea, has grown significantly since it began operations in Nigeria in 1998.
With its current growth and expansion, it needed more space to expand its IT footprint to support its mission-critical operations and Rack Centre was selected, and for good reasons.
Rack Centre is a state-of-the-art, Tier III Design Certified data centre offering carrier-neutral co-location services. The data centre provides over 6,000sqm (65,000sqft) of energy efficient and secure data centre space.
With its data centre co-location offering, Tier lll facilities, its scalability, flexibility, full redundancy and connectivity capabilities, Rack Centre has got Addax Petroleum covered.
Through its Migration Assessment and Assistance Program, Rack Centre provided Addax the efficient, risk managed migration of its business data to its data centre facility.
The migration was completed ahead of schedule, giving Addax the peace of mind it needed pre and post migration.
“Rack Centre offers 100% uptime for Addax business data platform, and its scalable modular technology gives Addax the flexibility and room for further growth,” said Mr. Ayotunde Coker Managing Director of Rack Centre.
He added, “Rack Centre’s carrier neutral data centre provides Addax Petroleum the widest choice of robust effective telecommunication, local connectivity and access to all undersea cables for international connectivity.”
Lagos-based Rack Centre is 100% owned by Jagal, a Nigerian conglomerate holding that operates leading energy businesses and manages a diverse portfolio of investments.
The technology invested provides clients guaranteed levels of uptime, power and service availability. Co-locating within Rack Centre allows companies to avoid fixed infrastructure investments and to leave the growing complexity of managing power and environmental issues to specialists.
