We believe that Ethiopia is ripe for becoming a hotbed for the strongest presence in the data center industry since the country is on the verge of having a low-post power as well as renewable hydropower. Around the globe, operators are eyeing government policies that might require that data centers be housed in the same country from which the data is accessed from which would lead to locations playing a huge influence on the data center industry.Call To Action

Why Choose RedFox
Companies no longer want to build, manage and maintain their own data centers. It’s simply too costly to run a highly available, secure and scalable data center for core applications. Many companies can’t get the capital expenses (CAPEX) for new IT equipment, let alone the funds for a new data center or to improve their current facility. That's where we come in!!!
Architecture Design Services
If you want to save money by moving to a high-density data center, your architecture design is critical. The initial investment you make in architecture design can have a huge impact on your long-term operational spend. For example, not many IT organizations think about structured cabling. But not planning your structured cabling ahead of time can impact your migration schedule and long- and short-term costs.
Here at RedFox we preliminarily scope architectural and engineering services that should help our customers plan their cabling and the physical layout of their equipment.
High Density Data Center
The data center has traditionally served as a three-legged stool of computing space, power, and telecommunications. These basic services support everything else that is happening in your data center.
In recent years, power has become more important than floor space, as IT equipment has shrunk in size but consumes more power. However, not many colocation providers offer the power density to support today’s IT equipment.
For example, most colocation data centers only offer 4 kW to 5 kW of capacity per cabinet. But just one device can consume this much power. A low-density cabinet can run out of power even though you only used a fraction of its vertical rack space. Instead of increasing your floor space, increase your cabinets’ power density.
Our high-density data center lets you support the same amount of IT equipment with fewer cabinets and less floor space. Since a single cabinet without any IT infrastructure costs between $10,000 and $18,000, restacking multiple low-density cabinets into one high-density cabinet can help you achieve big savings. Each cabinet footprint you can eliminate could save $55,000 to $65,000 over a three-year contract.
Introducing DCaaS Ethiopia
IT organizations are under pressure to deliver secure applications faster than ever, do more with less, and stay ahead of the changing security landscape. They need to have a wide variety of skills to evolve their IT architecture and application portfolio. As a result, more and more companies are embracing managed services to help with the large burden placed on IT. With DCaaS, you can transfer the day-to-day operational parts of your IT infrastructure to your data center solutions provider. For example, we can make sure your servers are always on and quickly respond to problems. This can improve your efficiencies and lower your costs, as you don’t need the in-house staff and resources to handle these tasks.
Availability and skillsets are key to RedFox's DCaaS. As your data center solutions provider we make sure that we can meet your availability demands. For example, managing a complex Linux shop takes completely different skills than those necessary to manage a mainframe. Your provider should also offer skills that you don’t have in-house.
If you want to leverage new systems and applications that your in-house team can’t support, it’s vital to partner with someone like RedFox that has the skills to manage these technologies. Besides, we have the skills to manage your legacy equipment. This is particularly useful if your legacy technicians are retiring, and you don’t have anyone in-house who is familiar with the equipment.
RMH | Rapid Managed Hosting
Managed hosting services let you move away from a CAPEX model, where you own your data center and all of your equipment. Instead, using RedFox as your data center solutions provider; we host your servers, operating system (OS), network, storage, and/or databases. The rapid managed hosting model allows you to pay a predictable monthly fee using OPEX.
We can fill IT skills gaps in your organization. They allow you to focus on what you do best ― innovating and serving customers. Meanwhile, we improve your operations by handling work that’s resource-intensive, routine, or not within your area of expertise. So assigning this work to a third party with a larger resource pool like RedFox and lower operating costs not only saves you money but frees up your scarce resources, so you can focus on activities that add immediate and long-term value to your business.
Many IT organizations spend a lot of time planning their data center facility but neglect planning for their migration or transformation. For a successful migration, you must address these two tasks jointly.
Here at Redfox we provide the proper migration planning that reduces your risk of downtime when you transition to your new IT environment. We know, when our customers transition into a new environment, they need to make sure that every component in the facility is ready to accept your infrastructure on day one. This is very important if you are undergoing any transformation as a part of your migration initiative. That is why we help you select the right tools and technologies before your migration so your migration runs smoothly. And when approaching the migration planning effort, we carefully consider the appropriate migration methodologies for both your infrastructure and applications — in addition to our supporting data. Each of these components of migration requires different skills and planning. We successfully handle all three.
Migration projects require significant effort in the planning phases to ensure a smooth transition into your new environment. Some organizations underestimate the amount of time involved and attempt to execute their migrations with minimal design and planning effort. We at RedFox DO NOT!
Managed Security Services
Today’s enterprises face an unprecedented number of threats, both internal and external. Responding to these threats puts a huge demand on your resources. Enterprises are also under more pressure to remain compliant to meet service level agreements (SLAs) and protect sensitive customer data. However, many IT organizations don’t have the internal resources to keep their systems secure and compliant. It’s often easier to partner with someone who can give you “pre-built” security and compliance.
Here at RedFox we have the physical security and cybersecurity you need to protect your data and meet your compliance requirements.
When you have a compliant facility provider like RedFox with certifications such as SOC II and ISO 27001, you will reduce your risk of a breach and your audits will run more smoothly.
