Today we announced our work with Africa Cloud Services to facilitate its plans to expand into the African market. Recognizing the need for service providers to meet customer demands for bespoke cloud services, Flexiant and Africa Cloud Services will work together to capture the cloud opportunity in Africa and West Africa.

We asked Oswald Osaretin Guobadia, Managing Director of Africa Cloud Services to put into his own words why he is working with Flexiant. Watch the video now.
