“Link Datacenter is proudly to be the only provider of this service in Egypt, our strong partnership with Microsoft Egypt and keen foresight lead us to gravely invest in the technology and make it readily available for the Egyptian market. Clients who can’t migrate to the cloud due to security or data regulations can easily move their applications and data to Azure Stack which can easily connect to any applications they have on Azure cloud. Using Azure stack omits any problems with latency because they are connected via a dedicated data line, it also heightens the security of their infrastructure because nothing is accessible through the internet. Using Azure stack improves the agility, scalability, and reduces your total cost of ownership because you only pay for what you use and don’t need to invest in costly local data centers.” Said Gamal Selim, Link Datacenter CEO. “Azure stack services are expected to cause a leap in the local cloud market, and LDC is ready to take the lead thanks to our 20+ years of successful implementations, strong technical know-how and superb customer care.” Gamal added.
