Seacom said it will offer direct connections from its East Africa network to public cloud networks and data centres in South Africa. This follows the launch of Microsoft’s enterprise-grade data centres in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Seacom’s offering, available to business customers, will deliver direct connectivity to the Microsoft data centres via network connections from Kenya to South Africa.
The Seacom subsea cable, which connects Kenya to South Africa, offers a fibre express route that carries Terabytes of capacity with speeds from as low as 50 Mbps up to 10 Gbps. Seacom’s recent acquisition of FibreCo’s network allows it to extend this capability across South Africa and into the major data centres where cloud providers, such as Microsoft, have a presence.
