IXPN is without a doubt the best internet exchange point in Nigeria and provides ADC with the connectivity it needs to offer customers market-leading service, claims Dr. Angus Hay, group executive for IT & partnerships at ADC.
Because they will have access to a connected, secure, and highly accessible ecosystem of key partners, the collaboration will provide Nigerian enterprises the confidence they need to migrate their systems to a top-notch data center.
In the digital economy, businesses are switching to cloud-based and internet-centric technology, but many think the expenses of maintaining their infrastructures – such as backup generators and physical security – are too high. By reducing the total cost of ownership, increasing availability, and expanding connectivity, shared data center resources open up new possibilities for creativity and cooperation.
Organizations are gradually getting rid of their on-premises equipment to support more business agility and scalability. According to Hay, businesses need a reputable specialist provider to store their systems in addition to a colocation provider who can act as a trusted partner and provide excellent local and worldwide connectivity.
Effective cloud services cannot be implemented without stable Internet access and reliable, trustworthy data centers. Internet peering is at the heart of the partnership between ADC and IXPN, while the data center operator offers clients access to the neighborhood ecosystem.
Nigeria’s top internet exchange provider, IXPN, enables regional content and service providers to connect directly for the exchange of regional internet traffic rather than having their data travel over great distances. They are increasing the pace at which end users can access online resources by bringing the content closer to the customer, which will significantly enhance corporate efficiency.
IXPN Chief Executive Officer Muhammed Rudman stated in a statement:
“We are happy to cooperate with Africa Data Centres toward giving an additional point of presence for our members within the new Eko Atlantic City.”
“Our agreement with ADC allows our members access to more peering facilities, particularly in Lagos, which will significantly improve connection performance, lower bandwidth costs, and lower latency for Nigerian internet traffic,” he said.
