CMC Networks, a global Tier 1 service provider, has launched its CMC Cloud solution to deliver high-performance edge computing across Africa. CMC Cloud is an Infrastructure as a Service- IaaS solution designed to bring workloads closer to the end user and enhance the performance of applications and services, without the need to invest in physical hardware.

CMC Cloud offers a decentralized edge infrastructure to decrease latency and bandwidth usage, aiding in enhancing the performance and reliability of digital services throughout Africa. This is crucial for real-time applications utilizing transactional data, video streaming, and the Internet of Things (IoT). The IaaS model grants businesses access to virtual servers, storage, and networking infrastructure on a flexible, scalable, and agile basis

Built for Africa


CEO for CMC Networks, Marisa Trisolino, says “CMC Cloud has been purpose-built for the African continent. We understand local needs and challenges across markets, and our new IaaS offering is providing tailored solutions to address the specific requirements of African businesses. We want to remove the barriers to cloud adoption, simplifying and accelerating the growth of Africa’s digital economy. CMC Cloud is making this a reality with a flexible, scalable and cost-efficient model.”

CMC Networks simplifies the process for both local and international businesses to enter and expand across African markets by overcoming data sovereignty laws that can otherwise hinder cloud adoption. It provides cloud services that store and process data within country borders, assisting organizations in complying with country-specific legal and regulatory requirements regarding data storage and privacy. These privacy and security measures are critical for sectors such as finance, healthcare, and public services with sensitive data handling protocols.

Cost effective

CTO for CMC Networks, Geoff Dornan says “CMC Cloud, on top of our vast network footprint and ‘application-first’ AI core routing capabilities, delivers a holistic approach to digital transformation. Customers can easily adjust computing resources to meet changing business demands while optimising performance with smooth and responsive access to applications and data. The flexibility of CMC Cloud helps in scaling resources in accordance with demand, making it a cost-effective solution for start-ups, SMEs, and large enterprises alike. With CMC Cloud, we’re making it easier than ever for businesses to thrive in today’s digital economy.”

CMC Cloud offers a variety of computing, storage, and networking solutions, including Virtual Machines, memory, block storage, object storage, IP addresses, Firewall as a Service (FWaaS), IP Premier Dedicated Internet Access (DIA), Distributed Denial of Service Protection as a Service (DDoSPaaS), Carrier Ethernet, MPLS, and Multi-Cloud Connect. CMC Networks’ Flex-Edge integrates software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN), SDN, network functions virtualization (NFV), and security into one solution, eliminating the need for physical presence in-country. CMC Networks boasts the largest pan-African network, serving 51 out of 54 countries in Africa and 12 countries in the Middle East.
