The Research for MarketsLtd (TCL) Data Centre Africa - 2012 report was produced during the period from January 2012 to February 2012. It is an updated version of the Africa and Middle East Data Centre report published in early 2011. The revised report uses both primary sources and secondary sources as a basis for the research. The Data Centre Africa - 2012 report has primary research - which includes interviews, telephone contacts together with rack space price quotes received directly from the Data Centre providers in Africa. It also includes information from other interested parties including information obtained from industry regulators in the countries surveyed. To derive the space forecast in the report TCL has performed a “bottom up” survey of all the identifiable Data Centres in each of the 9 African countries in our report, with overall raised floor space and utilisation levels as of the end of 2012, which is then used as the basis of a 5 year forecast from the end of 2012 to the end of 2017. In the “market structure” section of each country profile, TCL has referred to details of the growth of the ICT sector in each country – and provides teledensity statistics. In the report TCL has collated information concerning from over 60 Data Centre providers across the 9 African countries (Algeria, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa, Tunisia & Uganda) which have multiple Data Centre providers. Some 102 separate Data Centre and Co-location facilities have been identified in the 9 African countries.
