Liquid Intelligent Technologies, a leading provider of pan-African digital infrastructure, has partnered with wingu.africa a provider of carrier-neutral data centre services, to introduce Tanzania’s second Azure Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) stack.
This investment from Liquid Tanzania, says Liquid, will provide a more conducive environment for local businesses to accelerate their digital transformation journeys.
The solution offered by Azure Stack HCI ensures that businesses meet local compliance standards by letting customers run applications designed for virtualised infrastructure.
Additionally, with the carrier-neutral offering from the Wingu group, companies have the further advantage of choosing the connectivity service provider.
“In 2021, we were the first to bring Azure Stack to Tanzanian businesses, helping them gain access to cloud solutions that met the local data regulatory requirements and efficiently run latency-sensitive business applications. This is yet another milestone we achieved as we continue to work towards empowering our customers to adopt cloud and contribute to making Tanzania a digital economy,” says Manish Govindji, Acting CEO of Liquid Intelligent Technologies Tanzania.
Microsoft describes its Azure Stack as “a portfolio of products that extend Azure services and capabilities [Azure is Microsoft's cloud computing platform] to your environment of choice – from the data centre to edge locations and remote offices,” and adds: “Build and deploy hybrid and edge computing applications and run them consistently across location boundaries.”
This news comes only three weeks after Liquid Intelligent Technologies Zambia announced the official launch of Azure Stack for its customers.
