Despite having just 6.8 percent broadband penetration, which is one of the lowest in the world, Nigeria remains the number one market for cloud computing. This statement is credited to the Chief Executive Officer of MainOne Technologies, Ms. Funke Opeke.
Mrs Opeke disclosed this during the launch of her company’s new cloud computing based solution. The new cloud computing based solution is in partnership with the company’s data centre subsidiary MDX-i.
The solution, according to Mrs Opeke, who is one of Nigeria’s foremost executives in the communications sector, is built on Microsoft Azure’s enterprise grade infrastructure, which provides flexible, highly available and fully secure private computing environments to companies on a Pay-as-you-Go basis.
The MainOne CEO added that with the combination of expertise in different data sourcing, in technologies and geographic specialization, MDX-i cloud services will deliver a solution designed to meet the needs of enterprise customers in the West African region.
Going by her words, the technology couldn’t have come at a better time, considering the fact that IT firms and multinational data companies are faced with the challenges of dealing with big data in relation to how these data can add value to individuals.
“The new solution is the first Cloud service MDX-i is launching in partnership with us. It is powered by Microsoft, the leading global provider of Cloud Services. MDX-i is positioned to meet the computing infrastructural needs of companies deploying private, public or hybrid clouds from our Tier III Data Centre,” Mrs Opeke said.
