Pamoja’s Cloud services business model is built on the growing demand for IT-as-a-Service from small and medium enterprises (SME), coupled with the need for service providers to increase the value of their existing offerings and grow broadband revenue.
Our mission is to build a Cloud services marketplace in Africa for SMB solutions. These services are offered to channel partners to on-sell under their own brand (i.e. white-labelled) to their target markets.
This vendor-neutral Cloud platform and IP infrastructure positions Pamoja as the perfect Cloud partner in Africa.
With the rapid expansion of broadband connectivity in Africa the adoption of Cloud services is set to mirror that of developing countries. Pamoja is investing, initially, in Cloud computing infrastructure in South Africa and Kenya. These facilities will improve access to the Cloud services and address the issues surrounding the location of confidential and sensitive data.
The Cloud infrastructure in South Africa will allow Pamoja to service the Southern African markets with a strong focus on South Africa, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Zambia. The Kenyan based Cloud datacentre will deliver services to Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and other East African countries.
The design offers full in-datacentre redundancy with regional redundancy between the two datacentres.
Pamoja is supported by a team with extensive Cloud services skills and experience. The architecture and operations teams have more than 17 years’ experience in developing and supporting datacentre and Cloud platforms. Pamoja’s Cloud technology is complimented with business development services that pave the way for the successful integration of this new technology paradigm into existing business models.
As a carrier and vendor-agnostic wholesale provider of Cloud-based services to Africa, Pamoja engages only with resellers and never the end-consumer.
