SA's Pamoja comes to Kenya

18 April 2013, 15:26

Nairobi - South Africa's cloud computing company, Pamoja, has expanded its cloud services business to Kenya, a strategic East African market.

This is part of plans to establish a premier cloud services marketplace for Africa.

Albie Bester, Pamoja General Manager said his company's channel partners continue to experience a surge of interest in Cloud services in the African market.

The drivers, he said, ranged from organisations responding to the global interest around cloud computing to organisations which look at driving business value from IT but cannot afford to deploy and operate all the business systems they require.

“We have established a strong profile and offering that we know will add value to the African connectivity marketplace,” Bester said.

Pamoja’s Cloud services will be provided via company’s network of data centres, located directly on the SEACOM submarine infrastructure.

To date, Pamoja has three channel partners in South Africa, three in Kenya and in discussion with others in Tanzania, Rwanda and Zambia.

The company, established in 2011 by SEACOM’s founder Brian Herlihy and Stafford Masie (former GM of Google SA), is a provider of wholesale Cloud computing services via telecommunication companies, ISPs and other service providers in Southern and East Africa.

The company is focused on a wider market, incorporating the fast-growing Small-to-medium Enterprise (SME) segment, and will leverage off SEACOM’s infrastructure, exposure to partnerships and Africa’s growing mobile and Internet market to entrench its services model.
