Dimension Data, a global ICT services and solutions provider, has made its Cloud Services for Microsoft available across the Middle East and Africa (MEA).
Dimension Data’s Cloud Services for Microsoft is a private cloud offering comprising managed Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 and Microsoft Lync 2010 hosted in a managed private cloud environment.
The offering is based on Microsoft’s productivity solutions.
Tony Munro, Solutions Executive: Dimension Data Africa, said “Our intention is to expand this solution into our MEA region rapidly by identifying the right clients to partner with to make this solution locally available to allow our clients to kick start their journey to the cloud with the security, compliance and customisation they require.
“By offering our clients managed productivity solutions in a private cloud environment, we are removing the barriers that previously inhibited some organisations from placing key business services in the cloud.”
Clients will be able to maintain the control they need to perform routine tasks through a self-service portal that automates provisioning, orchestration and management of the applications and underlying infrastructure.
The service leverages the South African ICT company’s CloudControl cloud management system and Microsoft System Center.
