Africa Data Centres, a Cassava Technologies business, has teamed up with TechAccess to deploy a Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution. DCIM software is used to measure, monitor and manage all of the IT equipment and supporting infrastructure housed within data centres. TechAccess is responsible for the software, hardware, integrations, project management, professional services and other project deliverables that make up the DCIM platform.
The DCIM solution includes data centre optimisation software from EkkoSense and an asset management platform from Assetspire. It will be deployed in Africa Data Centres’ two sites in Johannesburg, as well as its facilities in Cape Town, Nairobi and Lagos. Tesh Durvasula, CEO of Africa Data Centres, says the goal of this implementation is to provide site administrators with a holistic view of each facility’s performance to ensure that all resources, such as energy, equipment and floor space, are used as efficiently as possible.

Jaxon Martin, CTO for TechAccess, says data centres have to find ways to adapt and become more energy efficient and responsive to customers’ demands as data centres evolve over the next few years and net-zero initiatives become increasingly mainstream. Net-zero involves cutting greenhouse gas emissions to as close to zero as possible and creating a state in which greenhouse gases going into the atmosphere are balanced by their removal out of the atmosphere.
EkkoSense’s CEO, Dean Boyle, says EkkoSoft Critical AI-powered data centre optimisation solution is helping Africa Data Centres meet the challenges of delivering escalating digital workloads while cutting energy usage and securing carbon savings at the same time.
