Most Enterprise Businesses in West Africa prefer to host their IT Service on premise. Even if they consider hosting any service in the cloud, they would prefer to host it outside West Africa as availability, security and platform issues could not be guaranteed. However in hosting outside West Africa, they risked application performance issues due to latency, support and sometimes regulatory compliance of their services.
The coming of MainOne’s MDX-I Cloud Services has however eliminated these concerns
