Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced its partnership with Liquid Intelligent Technologies to offer direct connection services to businesses across Africa.
Liquid will be required to provide a direct connect delivery service which will give customers the ability to create private connections between data centres, and offices and encrypt messages more securely along communication lines and at a lesser cost.
Winston Ritson, Chief Operating Officer, Liquid Cloud and Cyber Security stated that the company will leverage its 100,000kms fibre infrastructure to enable customers to connect directly to the AWS cloud without a middleman.
“This relationship with AWS marks a vital step in our strategy to support our enterprise customers’ needs in many of our African markets,” he said.
Amazon will leverage Liquid’s services so customers can connect directly to the AWS cloud, thus skipping the public internet through a dedicated connection.
Liquid’s customers on the other hand will have access to more stable and secure connections.
This will enable them to get access to international-standard offerings via a service provider that has extensive expertise in bringing seamless cloud services to African businesses of all sizes.
