Internet Solutions (IS) is a Pan-African converged communications service provider operating in 14 countries across Africa, with international offices and points of presence in New York, London, Germany, Hong Kong, and Singapore. With over 15,500 square meters of data center space across the African continent, IS is the largest provider of alternate last-mile services in South Africa.
Internet Solutions is the first service provider to offer performance-based tiering services in Africa.
As a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Dimension Data Group and part of NTT, IS leverages its global footprint and infrastructure to rapidly deploy emerging technologies to its customer network of public and private sector organisations. Because growth is constant and dynamic, IS needed the ability to easily move storage around its data centres and have it up and running quickly for customers, and it needed to capitalize on granular scalability for a more flexible and portable deployment model. IS evaluated a number of storage providers in a bid to find an alternative, cost-effective and more flexible platform — and only SolidFire delivered.
