Main One recently launched its Cloud Connect product and successful delivery of the Microsoft ExpressRoute service, which connects large enterprises in Nigeria to Microsoft’s Azure Cloud.

Funke Opeke, chief executive officer of MainOne says the increasing migration towards cloud services globally informed the company's Cloud Connect solution, which enables predictable and reliable private connections ranging from 50Mbps to 10 Gbps to Cloud Services. 

MainOne is expected to offer private, high-speed services for customers to Microsoft Azure, with an aim to boost the performance of their enterprise applications and cloud infrastructure services.

 "We have noted that Nigerian businesses have a lot of their IT workloads in the public cloud offshore due to the agility and ease of onboarding that it offers. However, unless large Enterprise users put in place private connections, performance suffers over the public Internet," said Opeke. 

"This service directly addresses that connectivity challenge and comes on the heels of MainOne’s earlier selection as a Microsoft Cloud Service Provider."
