Island of Mauritius Appoints BroadGroup as Advaisors on Data Centre Strategy
Jul 14, 2009 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Mauritius announced it has appointed consulting firm BroadGroup as advisors on its data centre strategy, and also as producers of a special 2-day conference for enterprise CIOs, IT directors and senior Data Centre managers and investors.
"Mauritius is positioned at the crossroads of Africa, Asia and Australia and outside major earthquake ridges," said Philip Low, managing director at BroadGroup. "The island is also well known as a financial and infocom hub. Being relatively remote but well-connected to the world is a major attribute for the island-nation to position itself as a disaster recovery and business continuity destination."
Mauritius is connected to the SAFE/SAT3/W3C international fibre optic cable networks, and an additional link is envisaged to the SEACOM/EaSSy cable which will link Southern and Eastern Africa to Europe and India, by mid 2010.
Mauritius will host the Internet Data Centre Conference which will take place September 30 - October 1 2009, to connect local operators with partners. The event will also act as a showcase to position Mauritius as a data hosting and business continuity destination.
