The Djibouti Data Center (DDC) has announced today that it has concluded a cooperation agreement with ChinaNetCenter, who will build a content delivery network (CDN) service node in the DDC, which will bolster it’s end-user Internet access experience within Africa and its global network.

By joining the DDC ecosystem - including the Djibouti Internet Exchange (DjIX) - ChinaNetCenter expands it’s connectivity in Africa, and can leverage new capabilities to provide higher performance and low latency connectivity across many of the world’s fastest growing emerging markets.

“We are very excited about having China’s largest CDN provider join the DDC community, which is now a leading regional hub providing advanced services in Africa to our partners,” says Anthony Voscarides, Chief Executive Officer of the DDC. “The DDC and DjIX ecosystem is best positioned in east Africa to attract major global CDN providers, and positions the hosting DDC ecosystem as a major Internet hub in Africa for the “good of the Internet” and the rapidly growing Internet communities across all of Africa.”

“The partnership with the DDC will extend our network reach to Africa and help us better serve our customers,” says Chu Minjian, Board Member and Vice President of ChinaNetCenter. “This new network deployment brings advanced CDN technology to east Africa and will ensure the delivery of a faster and much improved Internet experience to the markets and customers we serve. ChinaNetCenter’s globalization strategy was officially launched in 2010 and has been successfully collaborating with oversea partners to expand our global footprint. We’re delighted to continuously provide high-quality global CDN service to our customers.”

In 2015, the DDC implemented the neutral, open, and independent Djibouti Internet Exchange (DjIX), which now gives global and regional telcos, mobile network operators, ISPs, content and CDN providers greater control over their Internet traffic flow to better serve the populations in east Africa. The DjIX now leverages the core DDC ecosystem and its unique access to 11 international and regional fiber cable systems, to provide a high speed, reliable and resilient IP exchange facility.
