New Podcast: A Conversation With iColo’s Sales Director Sajid Vayani At East Africa Com 2023 On Their Carrier-Neutral Data Center Business In Kenya.
This is a conversation I had with Sajid Vayani who is the Sales Director of iColo at the telco-centric East Africa Com 2023 Conference that was held in Nairobi this week at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Upper Hill. Sajid has an interesting background in that he originally started his career in accounting and at some point managed to pursue his passion for acting by attending a Master’s Degree Program in the UK.
He then came back to Kenya and was recruited as a Management Trainee at iColo 7 years ago as Kenya’s first carrier-neutral data center business. Sajid then rose through the ranks to eventually occupy his current role as the Sale Director of iColo which currently has multiple data centers in Kenya and Mozambique as of this writing.
iColo is the leading carrier-neutral data center provider operating state-of-the-art facilities in Kenya and Mozambique serving clients such as telecom carriers, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and peering points, IT & cloud service providers, content providers, enterprise and financial services providers. iColo is owned by Digital Realty which has a global data center community of 300+ facilities across 28 countries on 6 continents.
In our conversation, Sajid shared many insightful perspectives on what sets iColo apart in an increasingly competitive market in Kenya for data centers that have become increasingly important due to the accelerated digital transformation that the COVID-19 pandemic precipitated for organizations of all sizes.
