By utilizing Flashnet Cloud Services hosted in the Wingu data center, users will have easy, secure access to their data within Tanzania at an affordable cost. One of the benefits of this will be to help start-ups and developer communities to scale due to the reliability, and affordability that comes with this solution.
The same goes for SMEs and large enterprises as they will also benefit from this initiative, by using the cloud and data center services offered by Flashnet from the Wingu data center, they should reduce IT infrastructure management costs and experience more reliable and highly secure access to data.
