I don't think there's a 'public' data centre as such in Nigeria yet. Some private and govt owned organisations do have some small sized ones - but strictly for their network infrastructure. I was working on a blueprint project for some guys few years back intending to set up an SAP hosting datacentre somewhere in Lagos - and ultimately to be transformed into a publicly accessible datacentre provider - but it never went past the drawing board, the realities of the feasibility discouraged them.

Regarding bandwidth, I think the highest you could get from service providers (NITEL and GlobalCom) in naija at the mo is an E1 or multiple E1 lines. And that would be done via a custom optic fibre installation to  your CPE.


An impressive link from my archives - Some guys that have documented the build of their datacentre - from start to finish, and kind enough to make it public.

Gives a good insight into those wishing to go into doing something similar. But building it is just a piece of the pie. Day to day management of enterprise datacenters requires specialist expertise from different IT disciplines.
