Zadara, provider of edge cloud services, announced that Africa Data Centres, Africa’s largest network of interconnected, carrier- and cloud-neutral data centre facilities, and service provider Global Sense have added Zadara’s edge cloud services to their marketplace. Zadara’s resilient, enterprise-grade products and services, including its Federated Edge programme, are now available in Midrand, South Africa, and will soon be expanded into all Africa Data Centres locations to serve enterprise customers throughout the African continent.
With data centers located across Africa’s major regional business and trade hubs, Africa Data Centres is 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.
Zadara 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 co-location facility, or in the cloud. This flexibility enables companies to develop, deploy, run and virtualise any application on a true 100% OpEx consumption-based model. By partnering with Zadara, 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,” said Jody Martin, cloud product manager for Africa Data Centres. “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.”
“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,” noted Tal Rotem, sales director, South EMEA & LATAM for Zadara.
According to Gerrit Visser, managing director for Global Sense, “Our team understands that no two businesses are alike, that’s why we partner with our customers to develop efficient, cost-effective solutions that help optimise businesses. Delivering Zadara’s cloud edge computing and storage services in Africa Data Centres’ facilities allows our 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.”
