Our Member Raxio announces Strategic Partnerships with Africell, Roke, Sombha Solutions and Velocity

Michael Mukasa, Chief Commercial Officer, Roke Telkom released a statement
Andrew Jombwe, Managing Partner at Velocity Global said this about the partnership

On Monday 14th September 2020, Africell, Roke Telkom, Sombha Solutions and Velocity Global were announced as Resellers on board for Raxio Data Centre. “These reseller partners will extend bite size co-location solutions to their clients in the MSME (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises), SOHO (Small Office Home Office) and Consumer market segment in order to complement their already existing service offering. Clients who have requirements that may be below Raxio’s Entry products can still be serviced by our Reseller partners”, said Mr. James Byaruhanga, General Manager of Raxio Data Centre who are our members of the vice president’s club.

The local MSME & SOHO market is fore-casted to grow at a healthy rate over the next few years driven by a number of factors including a reduction in expenditure in the MSME & SOHO markets, an increase in consultancy and service businesses, a surge in internet connections, increasing popularity of cloud computing, and the increased work from home preference that has been a key characteristic of COVID effects on the formal working class in general.

The launch of Raxio Data Centre in Uganda definitely marked a huge milestone for the ICT community which has not had a modern centralized data Centre to handle co-location, distribution, processing and storage of big loads of data. For a long time businesses have had to outsource these services to strategic international partner companies or utilize small scale data centres. This strategic partnership will ensure that customers not only have a reliable local hosting partner for their needs but also support the growth and digitalization of various industries. This partnership will also be a game-changer, both in terms of international connectivity and to international operators.

We congratulate our members Sombha Solutions Store from the President's club, Africell Uganda, from the vice president's club and Raxio Data Center from the vice president's club on this strategic partnership.
