Safaricom unveils VMware-backed cloud services
Safaricom Kenya, this week, announced a redesigned, in-country cloud computing platform, and is offering associated services to assist businesses and organisations in digitising their operations.
The telco revealed that VMware technology supports the new cloud services, which are hosted in data centres in Nairobi and Kisumu.
The additional services, according to Safaricom, include the ability for clients to purchase cloud computing capabilities in bulk, configure their environment, and assign cloud computing resources to their applications, from a ‘single pane of glass’.
Safaricom said: “The cloud services also include provision of secure hosting services for business applications while complying to data residency concerns, provision of secure connectivity and secure payment integrations to business applications hosted securely on the cloud.”
