MainOne, West Africa’s leading communications Services Company and operator of the premier Tier III Data Center, has announced its official listing by Microsoft as an ExpressRoute Connectivity Provider for Nigeria.

The listing follows MainOne’s launch of its Cloud Connect product and successful delivery of the Microsoft ExpressRoute service which connects large enterprises in Nigeria to Microsoft’s Azure Cloud. With this recognition, MainOne will continue to offer private, high-speed connections for customers to Microsoft Azure thus improving the performance of their enterprise applications and cloud infrastructure services.

Speaking on the achievement, Funke Opeke, MainOne Chief Executive Officer says the growing migration towards Cloud services globally informed the company’s Cloud Connect solution which guarantees predictable and reliable private connections ranging from 50Mbps to 10Gbps to Cloud Services.

“We have noted that Nigerian businesses have a lot of their IT workloads in the public cloud offshore due to the agility and ease of onboarding that it offers. However, unless large Enterprise users put in place private connections, performance suffers over the public Internet. This service directly addresses that connectivity challenge and comes on the heels of MainOne’s earlier selection as a Microsoft Cloud Service Provider.”
