WebSprix Signs a Deal With Wingu.Africa
A data center is a building, a dedicated space within a building, or a group of buildings that contain physical or virtual servers connected internally and externally through networking and communication equipment that provides shared access to applications and data using a complex network, compute, and storage infrastructure. Most major data centers offer virtual servers for rent with all the necessary IT infrastructure. As a result, businesses ranging from small to large do not have to buy hardware and cover its services and maintenance anymore because these servers offer complete manageability, high security, and almost limitless resources.
"For many businesses today having a local data center just makes sense. It provides the infrastructure and security of a dedicated data center and companies enjoy the benefits of having their servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of their systems".
Wingu.Africa Group is a data center company that designs, builds, and operates data centers mainly in the East African region. The company has recently launched a tier 3 carrier-neutral data center facility in the Addis Ababa ICT park compound with a total land size of 1.5 hectares. The facility has been designed to co-locate data with 800 racks of power supply requirement of 10MW.
With this in mind, WebSprix IT solution has signed an MOU with Wingu Africa to use this facility as a hosting environment of the cloud services to its customers such as Bank of Abyssinia, Gohe betoch Bank, and others. The preparation to implement the cloud service has already been finalized and the full-fledged hosting and/or cloud service will be operational in 3 to 5 months. Apart from the hosting and/or cloud services in the Wingu Africa data center facility, WebSprix will also provide broadband connectivity to all customers to be hosted in the Wingu Africa data center facility. This partnership with Wingu.Africa will therefore allow WebSprix to begin launching enterprise-level services such as cloud services in addition to its core broadband connectivity (ISP) service. This intervention in general will lead the company to achieve a significant milestone in its journey to be the best service provider in the country.
