Angani has formally launched its cloud hosting services, according to a report from Disrupt Africa.
The startup is a fully automated cloud infrastructure company that is focused on SME markets, financial services and media industries in the East African region.
The Nairobi-based cloud service company closed a seed round for regional expansion in East Africa in February led by Invested Development. Angani will offer services including email/data backup, CCTV storage/backup and media storage/pay out.
“Our clients can benefit from the Angani cloud by taking up the space required and only increasing the capacity when they need to. This will deliver significant cost savings and efficiency coupled with our experience gained from many years of managing cloud services”, CEO, Angani, Phares Kariuki, said.
According to the report, the startup announced partnerships with local data centre operators, which will make it safe and cost effective to provide cloud solutions.
“The cost of setting up IT services in Kenya will now be reduced with the setup of cloud infrastructure. Businesses will no longer need to buy expensive IT infrastructure for their operations. They can now lease the capacity that they require and easily upgrade when the need arises,” Victor Kyalo, CEO of the Kenya ICT Authority (ICTA) said about Angani’s ingenuity.
