Nominate your Organization to Preview Microsoft Azure Cloud from Africa Datacenters

Nov 30, 2017

Preview Microsoft’s Cloud offerings from Africa datacenters ahead of its official launch. 


In an effort to deliver the intelligent Microsoft Cloud from datacenters in Africa, Microsoft is inviting organizations to participate in a preview. Microsoft says the preview will give local organizations a head start to run trials of their apps from local infrastructure.  

Microsoft have said that many of the organizations in Africa that rely on their cloud services have them delivered from Europe mostly. But with new datacenters in Africa it will provide scalable and secure cloud services across Africa with the option of data residency in South Africa.

The cloud platform nomination Invitation says;

“Customers will be able to participate in the preview of Microsoft Azure from Africa datacenters, which is a key component of Microsoft Cloud services. This will give them a head-start to run trials of their apps on Microsoft Azure from local infrastructure. With these hyper-scale datacenters, Microsoft will offer enterprise-grade cloud services from local datacenters to customers of all sizes and industries, including government departments, banking and financial services”.
