Ethio Telecom has begun providing Cloud Computing Services or Telecloud to its customers requiring high data storage and utilization.
The telco launched the Cloud Computing Services on Thursday as part of its newly unveiled three years LEAD growth strategy.
As per the strategy, the telecom firm aims to shift its revenue from traditional streams to value-added and content-driven services by introducing new digital solutions.
“Our company is pleased to announce that it has officially started providing Telecloud services which meet the demand of our Nation’s private and government institutions that require high data storage and utilization,” said the Telecom service provider.
This is the second new digital solution that the telco introduced to its customers within ten days. Ethio Telecom launched Contact Center as a Service on October 18, 2022.
Tree Type of Telecloud Services
The Cloud Computing Service or Telecloud allows institutions seeking off-site data backup solutions without the need to build their own data center or acquire additional infrastructure.
The telecom company said it includes three types of cloud services.
The first, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), enables users to save their personal information from wherever they are, as well as compile and provide various services to their customers.
The second, Platform as a Service (PaaS), primarily allows software developers to use a complete database management system for their developed software.
Software as a Service (SaaS) also allows Ethio Telecom’s customers to get the software, paying license fees using Telecloud “for a reasonable price in Birr.”
Ethio Telecom said it would initially provide Oneoffice productivity and collaboration solutions, Video Management System (VMS), and Smart Education productivity (Ulearnin) and then continue to offer various additional software.
“By using the cloud service, organizations and institutions can avoid the time spent on technology selection, infrastructure construction, training, and maintenance, as well as foreign exchange payments, so that they can focus only on their businesses,” the telco noted.
