Shedding light on the new product at the opening of its corporate offices in Accra, MainOne Ghana’s General Manager, Mr. Angelo Govina, explained that MainOne continues to recognize the challenges businesses face with setting up IT infrastructure in-house, which is not only costly, but fraught with operational challenges thus affecting their ability to focus on their core competencies. According to him, MainOne is able to eliminate these challenges though its shared Data Center model, which optimizes cost and improves performance by enabling enterprises, including start-up companies subscribe to colocation services as low as two sub-rack units (2U), with half and full rack options available to address larger requirements.
“Our new sub-rack colocation offering is perfect for businesses who run critical applications and business processes from small infrastructure footprints. Unlike standard half and full-rack colocation services, sub-rack colocation is delivered to 2U, 4U, 8U and 10U footprints. Key benefits of these Data Center solutions include reduced CAPEX and OPEX costs, enhanced access to the Internet via a multiplicity of telecom operators in the collocation facility, ability to scale as required, carrier-grade security and technical expertise from our team. This new offering assures data center customers of greater operational efficiency and profitability, as they no longer have to worry about the challenges and overhead costs of managing IT infrastructure.”
