Etisalat Nigeria has launched a new data centre in Abuja. According to the company, the data centre is set to address the growing demand for cloud and disaster recovery services.

CMO, Matthew Willsher said that the investment was made to ensure that customer service on the network is seamless and hassle-free.

“Our goal is to create more value for our customers by improving quality, reduce costs, introduce innovation and increase speed of delivery. This data centre will ensure that we remain innovative and that our customers will have continuity of service,” Willsher stated.

According to Willsher, the data centre was built to international standards and features an uninterrupted power supply – which has been placed in a fireproof and secure environment. This is in order to guarantee efficient data back-up capacity and to safely store and access critical data and IT equipment.

Etisalat has already erected data centres in Lagos and Kano.
