Zadara has announced that Africa Data Centres and service provider Global Sense have added its edge cloud services to their marketplace. The company’s resilient, enterprise-grade products and services, including its Federated Edge program, are now available in Midrand, South Africa, and will soon be expanded into all Africa Data Centres locations to serve enterprise customers throughout the continent.
With data centres located across Africa’s major regional business and trade hubs, the company sits at the heart of Africa’s digital transformation. These locations are rapidly emerging as epicentres for public and private cloud hosting, attracting both multinationals and the largest African enterprises. The company is focused on providing highly connected, physically secure, efficient facilities that are designed, built and operated to the highest standards demanded by today’s leading cloud providers, carriers and enterprises.
The company delivers superior turnkey solutions with the benefits of on-demand compute and storage services anywhere, in an existing on-premises data centre, in a private colocation facility, or in the cloud. This flexibility enables customers to develop, deploy, run and virtualise any application on a true 100 per cent OpEx consumption-based model. Through the partnership, Africa Data Centres is able to offer its marketplace customers award-winning infrastructure technology, including compute, storage, and networking, where they need it most.
“We are excited about the launch of Zadara’s enterprise edge cloud services in our Midrand facility,” Jody Martin, cloud product manager for Africa Data Centres, said. “Through Global Sense, a South African-based systems integrator and strategic Zadara partner, customers in our facilities can access fully-managed IT infrastructure on demand, scale their solutions at any time and simplify complex hybrid deployments. It’s an honour to be a part of Zadara’s growth through our secure, cloud and carrier-neutral facilities, which are rapidly expanding across the continent.”
“Enterprises around the world are reaping the benefits of Zadara’s edge cloud platform, and, with the African data centre market expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 15 per cent over the coming years, the time is now to bring these benefits to the continent,” Tal Rotem, sales director for Zadara, said. “We are proud to work with Africa Data Centres, their state-of-the-art data centres combined with Zadara technology will allow African organisations access to advanced, localised compute network and storage cloud services. Together, we are enabling customers to reduce cost, increase agility and drive productivity within their businesses.”
