I've been waiting for when there would be some news worth writing about Africa. It's been at least 3 years when I told some of my clients to think about Africa for data center development. With Google's Renewable Energy investment in Kenya covered in Wired there is finally some news from one of the big data center players.
When you look at a submarine cable you can see how Africa is a key position and there is an emerging market.
Google has made an investment in renewable energy which in all probability means a data center presence in Kenya, but to cover Africa with only one data center location does not make any sense.
Where is Google's next data center location in Africa?
