Liquid Intelligent Technologies has partnered with Wingu.africa to introduce a second Azure Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) stack in Tanzania.
The investment from Liquid Tanzania will provide a more conducive environment for local businesses to accelerate their digital transformations. The service offered by Azure Stack HCI ensures that businesses meet local compliance standards by letting customers run applications designed for virtualized infrastructure.
Manish Govindji, Acting CEO of Liquid Intelligent Technologies Tanzania said; “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.”
The innovative solution offered by Azure Stack HCI ensures that businesses meet the local compliance standards by letting customers run applications designed for virtualized infrastructure. Additionally, with the carrier-neutral offering from the Wingu group, companies have a further advantage of choosing the connectivity service provider.
On his part, Nicholas Lodge, co-founder and chief strategist at wingu.africa said; “The Wingu group is thrilled to collaborate with Liquid Intelligent Technologies in introducing Tanzania’s second Azure Stack, a pivotal step in accelerating the nation’s digital transformation. By offering local businesses access to cutting-edge cloud solutions, we aim to empower them to thrive in the digital age.
“Our carrier-neutral data center complements this initiative, allowing companies to choose their preferred connectivity service provider. Together with Liquid, we are contributing to Tanzania’s digital economy, fostering economic ties, and levelling the technology playing field for local businesses." He added.
“This partnership signifies a significant milestone in expanding technology access and affordability in Tanzania. We look forward to a future of increased connectivity, innovation, and growth for the region.”
Liquid’s continuous investment towards extending its fibre backbone and improving access to affordable digital solutions is critical to enhancing digital transformation in Tanzania. When local businesses have access to high-speed connectivity and digital services, they can effectively compete on the global stage.
