Following news of Helios Investment Partners’ investment in Kenya-based data center business IXAfrica at the beginning of this month, the London-based alternative investment firm announced a second deal in the sector last week. This time, the investment firm is buying a majority stake in Maroc Datacenter, a carrier-neutral data center in Morocco.

Operating in Rabat and its surrounding metro area, Maroc Datacenter counts a number of blue chip public and private clients among its growing cohort of customers, providing them with reliable colocation and cloud services. The business will form the foundation of Helios’s planned hyperscale data center platform for the Rabat and Casablanca metro areas.
