Nigeria being the largest in Africa, with the population rate the country carries, it’d always beat one’s imagination on how funny her Tech’s graph ain’t hiking up speedily in terms of making big stuffs. Although, one shouldn’t however despised how surprising the internet usage has grown so far though.

Due to massive complaints on how stressing hosting in a Nigeria Hosting Company can be from various individuals whom had already hosted their business online through building web-pages(websites), we here at All Naija Entertainment had to carry out a survey on Data Centers that are available within the country itself.

Before we gets down to business, let’s quickly have a stroll-check and a break-down on what a Center is and it’s usefulness or purpose.

What Is/Meaning Of Data Center.

Data center comprise two keywords which are “Data” and “Center“. Whilst Data means raw materials or A representation of facts or ideas in a formalized manner capable of being communicated or manipulated by some process, “Center” also means An area that is approximately central within some larger region.
Wherefore, Data Center means Facility used to house large networked computer systems and associated components, e.g. for distribution of data or providing cloud computing services.

Importance/Uses/Benefits Of Data Center.

In most of the cities, our life relies on the functioning and availability of one or multiple data centers. It is not an overstatement. Most of the things in every segment of human activity such as energy, lighting, telecommunications, internet, transport, urban traffic, banks, security systems, public health, entertainment and even our physical integrity are controlled by data centers.

Why Do You Needs A Data Center?

Organisations dependent on technology to deliver critical and sensitive services — software applications, payments, real time transactions — to customers. Common examples in this first group includes, banks, fintech companies and telcos. Generally, any company storing large volumes of data and relying on the integrity of this stored data for internal and external business processes.

Why Pay For A Data Center?

Even though costs usually depend on space allotted and operational cost of the infrastructure, data centres are generally expensive. Most companies that need them cannot afford one so they resort to shared data centres. If and when they can afford one, it is not economically advisable to own them as cost and burden of operation can be a distraction.

Data centre outsourcing or colocation as it is called is a speedier, nimbler and commercially more viable alternative to owning the infrastructure.
