JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – MTN Business has announced a strategic partnership with Microsoft in a deal poised to provide a pan-African cloud platform at MTN’s data centres.

Officials said MTN Business Cloud offered customers a true hybrid cloud solution.

The platform is powered by Microsoft’s technology and is built on MTN’s Global MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) network which has 23 points of presence across the globe.

This will ensure an enhanced customer experience due to lower latency and better response times.

Alpheus Mangale, Chief Enterprise Officer for MTN Business SA, said the partnership with Microsoft was a testament of the company’s commitment to be the preferred partner of choice for enterprise customers across all sectors of the economy.

“We are excited to be embarking on this journey with Microsoft to offer this cutting edge solution to our customers. The partnership between MTN and Microsoft will deliver a combination of strengths and capabilities that will enable our clients to harness a world class hybrid cloud solution,” said Mangale.

He said MTN Business Cloud will give convenience when using a solution from a global company that is backed by MTN’s reputation, expansive reach and proven track record across Africa and the Middle East.

Microsoft South Africa Managing Director, Zoaib Hoosen, welcomed the partnership.

“We value partnerships like these, as they play a big part in Microsoft being the only vendor positioned as a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrants for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service, Application Platform as a Service, and Cloud Storage Services for the second consecutive year,” Hoosen said.
