Tarsus Cloud On Demand invests R2m in local market

By Staff Writer

Tarsus Cloud On Demand, a South African Cloud Vendor, will be offering customers the ability to tap into on-premise, off-premise as well as hybrid cloud features of the full Windows Azure Pack offering.

The company, which is owned by MB Technologies, said as part of its initial investment into the platform, Cloud On Demand is investing in over R2 million credits for customers to make use of.

This will allow them to use the service at a discounted rate, deploy effective proof of concepts for their business as well as truly experience the value of the cloud without any initial capital outlay.

“The Windows Azure Pack services are the next evolution of local cloud and hosted services for South African customers. It enables customers to place a large chunk of their existing IT environment and datacentre management and services into the cloud,” said Jonathan Kropf, CEO at Tarsus Cloud On Demand. “Traditionally Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) has been the predominant offerings available to local companies.

“With Windows Azure Pack, we are now able to bring Platform as a Service (PaaS) to the market in an easy and cost effective manner. We believe in the value and are putting our money where our mouth is by providing cloud credits to the market,” adds Kropf.

With the offering from Cloud On Demand, through the Windows Azure Pack Management Portal, customers can now leverage a full self-service user experience of their web sites and web platform application services (PaaS); their virtual machines; Service Bus, for reliable messaging; virtual networks; as well as their database through SQL Server and MySQL database.

 

 

The Windows Azure Pack services are available to South African customers, partners as well as service providers, through Tarsus Cloud On Demand with immediate effect.

In addition, the company has a full expansion plan for its data centres throughout the rest of Africa over the next 6-12 months.
