GPX Global Systems Inc., a provider of colocation services who operates carrier-neutral data centers in emerging, but fast growing commercial markets along the MENA, South Asian, and South East Asian regions, has announced the opening of its second data center facility in Cairo, Egypt.
The new TIER4 data center in Egypt features 3,000 square meters of additional colocation space and 5 MW of power. The company claims to provide its colocation services with a 99.999% uptime guarantee.
GPX Global Systems states that demand for colocation data center services is growing in Egypt, driven by enterprise disaster recovery requirements, cloud computing, and content services providers. GPX’s newest data center, located in the Central Business District of New Cairo offers Egyptian and multi-national customers a secured and accessible location to support their colocation needs.
Together with its existing data center in Cairo and their Tier 4 Datacenter in Mumbai, GPX continues to expand its platform across the MENA, South Asian, and South East Asian regions.
“Our Egyptian expansion highlights GPX’s leadership in the market and our continued commitment to provide world class data centers in strategic geographic locations like Egypt,” said Nick Tanzi, GPX President & CEO. “With two of the most reliable data center facilities in Egypt, customers can confidently deploy their mission critical applications and technology, and have access to world class telecommunications infrastructure enabling cost effective, secure, and highly resilient business solutions.”
