INFRATEL oversees and operates three data centres built under the Smart Zambia project. The Production Site data centre in Lusaka has been Tier III Design Certified by Uptime Institute. The establishment of the three data centres has created a robust local cloud that will increase the uptake of cloud services and data security for both public and private entities.
INFRATEL's three sites are geographically spread across Zambia, with two in Lusaka and one in Kitwe. This offers additional redundancy for our customers as they have the possibility of replicating data stored in one data centre across to the other two. This kind of resilience is a critical for a data centre like ourselves and a lot of our customers are taking advantage of the benefits drawn from the geographical redundancy.
INFRATEL provides a reliable platform for the deployment of e-government services for the actualisation of the development outcome number eight (8) in the 7th National Development Plan, "Enhanced Infromation & Communications Technology" through strategic focus on improving ICT infrastructure development.

A consolidated environment means a smaller network and application infrastructure. As a result, businesses need less hardware, including costly items like servers, routers, and other equipment. A reduction in servers likely means standardizing on a few critical software applications, allowing companies to decrease operations costs.
Security is one of the main comforts of a colocation data center, and when the facility is within an hour of your place of business, checking up on security in person is easy. We make use of biometric security features to gain access to the servers. Other regulated entry and camera surveillance help ensure that your data can’t be tampered with, in the Data Center.
The planning, implementation, and execution of disaster recovery solutions are less daunting because all the vital components are in one place, easing replication and failover initiation.
