Liquid Telecom has deployed its Azure Stack Hub in Nairobi, Kenya to enable businesses to meet local data regulatory requirements and efficiently run latency sensitive business applications.
In a statement, Adil El Youssefi, Regional CEO of Liquid Telecom East Africa, said, “Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, we had been enabling businesses across the continent to implement their digital transformation strategies.”
