The Rise of the African Cloud

The African cloud has arrived. By the end of the year 2019, at least four hyperscale data centers will become operational in the African continent, offering hundreds of enterprise and consumer services from within Africa’s shores. For African markets, cloud, virtualization and the broader evolution towards serverless computing are the most disruptive technology developments since the mobile payment revolution. And our new research breaks it all down.
