MDXi Appolonia, the data centre subsidiary of MainOne, an Equinix company in Ghana, has achieved the Tier III Constructed Facility certification (TCCF) from the Uptime Institute, making it the most certified data centre in Ghana. With this new milestone, MDXi Appolonia has become Ghana’s leading data centre provider, with the top 4 certifications in the industry.
