We provide organisations with a bouquet of world-leading cloud services which is a massive endorsement of our network, infrastructure and data centres capabilities. Our strategic partnership with vendors such as Microsoft places us at the forefront of the software as a service and Cloud revolution. Security and privacy are inherent to the Microsoft Suite – such as Microsoft Azure. They provide confidentiality and integrity to customer data while maintaining transparent accountability. The platform offers a wide range of options and gives you full control and security to configure and customise applications to meet your organisation’s unique requirements.
As a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider, CloudINX can provide cloud services and products to Africa, such as Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Dynamics 365,, Microsoft Office 365, Enterprise Mobility Suite and Windows OS.
The service is built using secure, resilient and high availability connections across pan-African connections to Microsoft Azure and various Cloud Network Exchanges (IX). We have access to enabled CloudConnect ports at over 25 Points of Presence (PoPs) across Africa to support Microsoft Azure. ExpressRoute creates private connections between Azure data centres and infrastructure on your premises or in a colocation environment. ExpressRoute connections do not traverse over the public Internet, and therefore offer more reliability, faster speeds and lower latencies than typical Internet connections. In some cases, using ExpressRoute connections to transfer data between on-premises systems and Azure can give you significant cost benefits.
Directly connect to Azure from your existing WAN network, use multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) VPN, provided by any network service provider.
Use a virtual private cloud for storage, backup and recovery
With a reliable connection to Azure, makes it excellent for scenarios ie periodic data migration, replication for business continuity, disaster recovery and other high-availability strategies, a cost-effective option for transferring large amounts of data, such as datasets for high-performance computing applications, or moving large virtual machines between your dev-test environment in an Azure virtual private cloud and your on-premises production environment.
Extend your data centre
Use ExpressRoute to add compute and storage capacity of your existing data centre. With high throughput and fast latencies, Azure will feel like a natural extension of your data centre. Our customers enjoy the scale and economics of the public cloud without having to compromise on network performance. Build hybrid applications, with predictable, reliability and build applications that span on-premises infrastructure and Azure without compromising privacy or performance. Example, run a corporate intranet application in Azure that authenticates customers with an on-premises Active Directory service, serve all your corporate customers without traffic ever through the public Internet.
