In doing so, the companies plan to expand the services into all of Africa Data Centres’ locations and serve enterprise customers throughout the continent.
With data centres located across Africa’s major regional business and trade hubs, the addition of Zadara’s flexible storage and networking capabilities will seek to improve cloud infrastructure across the continent.
Jody Martin, cloud product manager for Africa Data Centres, said: “Through Global Sense, a South Africa-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.”
Tal Rotem, sales director, South EMEA & LATAM for Zadara, said: “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 CAGR of 15% over the coming years, the time is now to bring these benefits to the continent.”
Gerrit Visser, managing director for Global Sense, commented that the initiative aims to allow the customers to keep up with modern enterprise architectures. “Zadara’s pay-as-you-consume model is very advantageous to our customers and gives them flexibility and the ability to scale,” Visser added.
