Mr Ayotunde Coker, managing director of Rack Centre lauding the move to Rack Centre by Web4Africa said, “Web4Africa is a key player in delivering local Cloud services hosted here in Nigeria, delivered in Nigeria. This is a key component of Rack Centre Cloud on GroundTM marketplace for cloud based services. Rack Centre provides Web4Africa the most connected data centre in West Africa, and the ideal geophysical location to provide its services, not only within Nigeria, but across all of West Africa.
Rack Centre is 100% owned by Jagal, a Nigerian conglomerate holding that operates leading energy businesses and manages a diverse portfolio of investments.
