Flashnet, a Managed Service Provider based in Dar es Salaam, today announced a partnership with Wingu Group, East Africa’s leading carrier-neutral data center group, which operates a Tier III Data Center in Dar es Salaam to provide Cloud and Data Centre Services across Tanzania and East Africa.

Flashnet’s Cloud and Data Centre Services portfolio includes Cloud Servers, Cloud Backup, Dedicated Servers, Disaster Recovery as a Service, Colocation, and Managed Services.  This strategic partnership will enable enterprises and SMEs in Tanzania to host their data within the country for low latency, security, reliable connectivity, and regulatory purposes.

By utilizing Flashnet Cloud Services hosted in the Wingu data center, users will have easy, secure access to their data within Tanzania at an affordable cost.  One of the benefits of this will be to help start-ups and developer communities to scale due to the reliability, and affordability that comes with this solution.

The same goes for SMEs and large enterprises as they will also benefit from this initiative, by using the cloud and data center services offered by Flashnet from the Wingu data center, they should reduce IT infrastructure management costs and experience more reliable and highly secure access to data.

Most businesses have been relying on overseas data centers which can have an impact on connection reliability, legal and regulatory compliance, and high costs.  Flashnet’s partnership with Wingu Group addresses these issues through affordable costs, reliable connectivity, and strict compliance with local regulatory requirements.

The two firms plan to expand the current services and reach more users in the region with services that support business continuity and disaster recovery as well as provide the necessary computing power and storage for a business of any size.
