SEACOM cloud infrastructure offers high performance and cost savings

SEACOM Business provides enterprise-grade cloud infrastructure solutions to businesses in South Africa. Our dedicated cloud infrastructure gives companies a flexible and scalable solution that is compatible with various operating systems, such as Windows and Linux. These solutions will enable more virtual storage space and computing capacity for companies.

SEACOM Business has dedicated data centres that are strategically located across South Africa. These are ideal for enterprise customers that need to store and access various work applications in a cloud-based environment. In addition, our cloud infrastructure solutions also deliver full online backup and recovery of stored files and applications. These solutions bring performance benefits and cost savings to a business.

Increased performance and cost-saving benefits

Businesses that opt for our cloud infrastructure solutions will be given their own dedicated CPU, RAM and cloud storage, which will significantly increase computing performance and boost productivity. We also make sure that businesses are connected to their nearest data center. Combined, these two benefits allow for faster file transfers and rapid uploading or downloading of data from the cloud.

SEACOM Business will connect a company to a nearby data centre via our own fibre network. This reduces the costs of cloud storage and makes the virtual services faster overall. Since many large businesses hold confidential information, it is absolutely critical that cloud storage is secure.

SEACOM Business works in partnership with world-leading IT security providers to ensure that our cloud infrastructure is combined with advanced security hardware and software, including anti-malware, firewalls, content filtering and data encryption.

Our servers and storage are powered by Dell, the computing software is provided by Intel Xeon, the virtualisation is hosted by Microsoft Hyper-V and the secure data back-up and recovery is handled by Redstor. These companies are leaders in their respective fields, so an enterprise will benefit from the best software and security services available.

In addition, SEACOM Business can assist with right-sizing, network design, deployment, security policy implementation and data management policies along with our cloud infrastructure. These services are fully-licensed and compatible with remote desktop working. For more information or to get a quote for our cloud infrastructure solutions, email us at or leave us a message.
