Available to customers in all countries with Liquid operations, existing and potential AWS customers can directly access their Direct Connect services. Additionally, through this partnership, they can now reduce administration overhead by managing the end-to-end process and undifferentiated tasks on behalf of clients.

“Liquid has over 100,000 km of fiber coverage across the continent, and we’re leveraging our fiber infrastructure to allow customers to connect directly to the AWS cloud without a middleman. This relationship with AWS marks a critical step in our strategy to serve the needs of our enterprise customers in many of our African markets,” said Winston Ritson, COO, Liquid Cloud and Cyber ​​Security.

This partnership will bring significant benefits to multinational and large enterprise Liquid Cloud customers because, with AWS Direct Connect, customers can connect to the AWS Cloud bypassing the public internet through a dedicated connection. In addition to Liquid Cloud customers having access to a range of services that already include Microsoft and Oracle, they will also benefit from more consistent, reliable and stable performance.

“With Liquid Cloud, our customers gain access to an international standard offering through a service provider that has extensive expertise in delivering seamless cloud services to African businesses of all sizes,” says Ritson.

Liquid Cloud is committed to working with businesses and supporting them at every stage of their digital transformation. “We continually invest to ensure that local businesses have access to the highest technology standards that provide a seamless experience for their customers and can compete with businesses in other developed economies. Africa is ripe for international investment and cloud technologies are a critical component for assured success,” he said.
