Azure Stack is an extension of Azure. It gives the same services as Azure from MDX-i’s Tier-III datacenters in the West African Region, allowing customers enjoy the flexibility of the cloud at lower latency and meeting regulatory compliance.

Now legacy systems get a chance for cloud transformation.Using Cloud Services from the MDXiAzure Stack allows you benefitthe advantages of cloud computing while still maintaining your data residency at a local data center for regulatory or data sovereignty restrictions. At the same time, you address latency and connectivity issues as data can be processed locally.
