NAIROBI, KENYA | NOW THEN DIGITAL — Boston IT Solutions South Africa, part of Boston Limited (Boston), has teamed up with Liquid C2, a division of Liquid Intelligent Technologies. The collaboration aims to deploy a comprehensive hybrid cloud infrastructure across Africa.
The initial launch will take place in Zambia, providing local businesses access to compliant cloud solutions and efficient execution of latency-sensitive business applications.
Liquid C2’s COO, Winston Ritson, highlighted the significance of the partnership: “The availability of Azure Stack in the country means that through our partnership with Boston, we can ensure that businesses comply with their country’s data sovereignty and compliance laws. In addition to being able to cater to the ever-growing demand for cloud solutions, we are now confident that our customers will experience the same consistent services across the continent”.
Boston, a leading global Supermicro supplier, brings substantial value to the partnership. They offer design expertise, hardware and software integration, along with direct shipment, onsite installation, final testing, and 24/7 next-business-day onsite support, a unique service in the region. This solution’s reference architecture enables replication and deployment in multiple African locations.
Liquid C2 gains efficiency through turnkey Azure cluster setups for customers, reducing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and shortening Return on Investment (ROI).
Chris Coetzee, Business Director at Boston IT Solutions South Africa, emphasized their customer-centric approach: “We are excited about bringing offerings like these to new territories where there previously was no public cloud available to this scale. This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for every party involved. By helping Liquid C2 connect people across an entire continent, Boston can show our technical capabilities to model and deploy large and complex systems. We cannot wait to see what new doors open thanks to the increased connectivity across borders. Today, we live in the information age, and we want the flow of information to be fast, consistent, and high quality across the world.”
The collaboration’s investment underscores a joint commitment to boost digital transformation in Africa. The cloud solution satisfies regulatory requirements, offering secure, low-latency, real-time business continuity with adaptable adoption models.
