Johannesburg is our first destination in Africa, and it’s South Africa’s most populated city. We’re expanding our Cloud coverage to ensure the availability and high performance of our services anywhere in the world. The first African location will allow our clients to reduce delays to end-users in this region and grow their business even faster.
