afriQloud launches in Uganda, 15 African countries to follow in 2020

Jun 25, 2019

afriQloud launches in Uganda, 15 African countries to follow in 2020. BringCom, in partnership with science and technology investor, Imprimatur Capital, and European edge cloud software company, GIG Technology, have unveiled afriQloud. Launching in Uganda, afriQloud aims to provide customers with an innovative and secure cloud service. Hans van Linschoten, CEO of afriQloud says “we see significant potential in the growing African cloud market, and we’re excited to bring this service to the continent. By the end of 2019, we will complement the few developed markets with a powerful and locally distributed cloud in at least 15 countries. This ensures data sovereignty for institutions and governments within Africa’s shores.” Most of Africa’s online content is currently hosted on servers outside of the continent. Implementation of edge cloud computing services in Africa has been adversely affected by the lack of reliable and secure connectivity from various service providers. “Although cloud adoption is predominantly private, the African markets are generating growth of 30 per cent in public cloud sales. Few other ICT market segments in the African tech ecosystem have the potential of adding an incremental $2 billion in top-line revenue over the next 5 years” says Mark Simmonds, Chairman of GIG Technology. Fabrice Langreney, CEO of BringCom, says “opening up of the global market will require African companies and organisations to be equally competitive in the deployment of e-solutions, scalability, secure data accessibility and connectivity in line with international standards.” afriQloud is also building bridges to the African incubators and tech hubs. More than 440 tech hubs are available today and more funding is being raised by tech startups across the African continent. The aim of afriQloud is to have the Edge Cloud installed in cities and tech hub ecosystems that host a higher number of startups and developers. Willem Hendrickx, CEO of GIG Technology, says “we believe in partnerships and the creation of local economy using our cloud technology. Having assessed the cloud readiness of different African markets, we are thrilled to launch in Kampala.” Linschoten adds, “we have hit the ground and we intend to keep up the pace. This service in Africa is long overdue. In a few months, we will expand our service in East Africa – Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda, and Ethiopia will be afriQloud active very soon. We are working through channels in Southern Africa as well – Zambia, Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique are our next target markets. And of course, the West African region is good and ripe for the plucking. Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal, Ivory Coast, and Cameroon – we’ll be present in all these countries this year.” Edited by Jenna Cook
