AFRICA – Climate & PUE – How African Data Centers Handle the Heat

December 16, 2020

In this talk, we’ll be discussing data center design for Africa. We know there are certain geographical and meteorological conditions favourable to running data centers, and unfortunately, most of the continent isn’t necessarily blessed with many of those. However, Africa is vast, diverse, ripe for growth and will be at the forefront of digital growth at a global level in several aspects throughout the next couple of decades. So, there’s no way of skirting around the complex and vital question of how to create data centers that can “handle the heat”. We’re joined by experts with global experience and insight, as well as regional actors building solutions underpinning Africa’s potential.
