Deimos launches infrastructure-as-a-service platform to transform business operations in Africa

Deimos, a technology company specialising in cloud-native solutions, today announced the launch of Deimos Managed Infrastructure (DMI), a tried and tested groundbreaking solution that promises to transform the way businesses manage their cloud infrastructure. With a focus on security, scalability, and efficiency, DMI significantly reduces time to market for tech startups, small and midsize businesses, and enterprises, enabling them to concentrate on developing robust customer-centric applications to fuel their growth.

Launched in 2018, Deimos is at the forefront of scaling cloud solution technology for companies throughout Africa, including CBN, Kuda Bank, and Mukuru, propelling them toward digital transformation and success. The launch of DMI, an automated solution, was built on decades of experience streamlining complex systems, tackling recurring product/system failures and the challenges of large-scale hybrid infrastructure. The new innovative platform will reduce recovery times to less than 30 minutes compared to traditional solutions, ensuring enhanced resilience and efficiency for businesses. With an onboarding process that requires no downtime during migration, tech startups and other businesses are able to maximise their cloud investments and stay competitive in an ever-evolving digital world.

The platform enters the booming Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) market, which is projected to grow to an estimated $481.8 billion by 2030, according to recent industry reports [including Allied Market Research, Fortune Business Insights]. Companies are rapidly adopting IaaS to avoid the purchasing of expensive new equipment, installing and implementation as well as building a team to use it.  IaaS helps where swift deployment and scalability are critical, a necessary hurdle for tech companies and digitised traditional banks. DMI is designed to be a strategic partner allowing businesses to concentrate on their core activities without worrying about the intricacies of technology management.

 DMI addresses critical pain points, offering a number of solutions to challenges:

  • Time to market: Accelerate infrastructure deployment reducing time from 12 months to under 3 months for swift market entry.

  • High availability: Ensure uninterrupted operations with redundancy, load-balanced deployment, and auto-scale groups.

  • Financial operation: Optimises cloud costs in real-time, aligning resource use with business objectives.
