Raxio Data Centre is building and will subsequently operate Uganda’s first enterprise grade Data Centre facility. Raxio was established by First Brick Holdings (“FBH”), a Roha Group company, to build the foundation of the digital economy across Eastern and Southern Africa. Roha is a US greenfield investment company that builds and develops new businesses across Africa.
Raxio believes that with the growth in data usage and storage and the broader digital transformation of businesses and the public sector in Uganda, Raxio Data Centre will be a centre-piece of infrastructure supporting the growth and digitalisation of the Ugandan economy and the goals set in the MoICT Data Strategy.
Set to open in Q 1 2020, Raxio Data Centre will be the first of its kind in Uganda, operating as a carrier-neutral facility, and meeting the international Tier III standard. From June 2019, Raxio Data Centre contracted Capital One Group as its lead marketing communications agency to support its brand positioning during the pre-launch and construction phase.
