Ethio Telecom Launches Cloud Computing Service

ADDIS ABABA – Ethio Telecom has begun providing Cloud Computing Services or telecloud to its customers requiring high data storage and utilization.

The launching of the cloud services on Thursday is part of the telco firm’s three years LEAD growth strategy.



As per the strategy, Ethio Telecom 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 Ethio Telecom.

Telecloud allows institutions seeking off-site data back-up solutions without the need to build their own data center or acquire additional infrastructure.

The telecom company offer three types of cloud services.

The first, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), enable users to save their personal information from wherever they are, 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 software, paying license fees using telecloud “for a reasonable price in Birr.”

The telco said it will initially provide Oneoffice productivity and collaboration solution,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 said.
