Today, technology is infiltrating every industry and this can be witnessed by the growth of businesses moving online and trying to cope up and adapt to new emerging technologies but what still remains unanswered is adequate storage and safety.
However, Raxio Data Centre– Uganda’s first enterprise-grade, Tier III certified carrier-neutral data centre is in the country to address such an issue. To support data storage facilities for businesses with small data storage needs, Raxio launched a new sales promotion campaign on wednesday that offers businesses a FREE cross-connect when you buy a 1/2 rack (1KW) or 1/4 rack (500W).
Speaking at the launch of the campaign, Raxio Data Centre’s Sales Manager- Allen Najjuuko shared, “Since we launched Raxio Data Centre in May 2022, we have engaged strategic players in the industry to get insights about their data storage needs. From our research, there has been huge demand from MSMEs who have smaller data storage needs but require the infrastructure and support that a carrier-neutral data centre like ours provides,” she said.
“With this promotion, we are supporting the growth of corporate and MSMEs businesses in Uganda that appreciate the need for 99.999% uptime to support critical operations for their enterprise,commercial and corporate businesses,” added Abdul-Rahman Ahmed, Raxio Data Centre’s VP Tech and Operations.
The remarks were made at a workshop promoting the ongoing sales campaign held at OUTBOX under the theme “How Raxio Data Centre can power your business” attended by innovators and start up owners in the technology and innovation industry.
Richard Zulu, the team leader and Founding Partner at OUTBOX noted that the partnership with Raxio aims at helping tech start-ups cut back on the operation costs incurred to mantain cloud services and big data storage.
He added, “As Outbox celebrates 10 years of operations, we reflect on a journey that began by supporting tech entrepreneurs through a partnership with Google for Startups. Currently, we run projects with United Nations Development Programme Uganda, UNICEF, NSSF and Mastercard Foundation.”
The promotion, which runs from 1 st November to 31 st December 2022, targets critical sectors such as FINTECH, Research Innovation firms, microfinance, insurance, and professional services mainly drawn from the Uganda Network Operators Group (UGNOG) and the Financial Technologies Services Providers Association (FITSPA), the umbrella body for fintechs in Uganda with 189 members to-date.
These key sectors are at the heart of driving critical business operations in Uganda and contributing to the country’s economic prosperity.
