Vodacom, the South Africa-based connectivity, digital and financial services company, launches Africa’s First Amazon Web Services (AWS) Innovation Lab in partnership with AWS and Intel. The lab serves as a Proof of Concept (POC) setup for customers to test their applications for performance on AWS Outposts.
Intel-powered AWS Outposts is a fully managed service intended to provide AWS infrastructure, services, APIs, and tools to virtually any on-premises or edge location. It allows applications with low latency, data residency, and local data processing needs on-premises. It also decreases the time, resources, and operational risk required to procure, manage, and upgrade on-premises infrastructure.
The laboratory will help enterprise, and Vodacom Business public sector customers boost their digital transformation journey by building, managing, and scaling their local applications using AWS services and tools.
While Intel and AWS promote the laboratory’s offering, Vodacom uses its position as an APN member to test and deliver the migration to AWS Outposts. The laboratory in Johannesburg focuses on enhancing tech innovations, providing faster scalability, & creating opportunities to use infrastructure and technologies to solve business challenges.
The laboratory is expected to help customers save time, money, and improve experiences for their own customers. Vodacom’s customers can approach Vodacom to validate their hybrid use cases and test their workloads on AWS Outposts before deploying them in production.
