Electronic payments service provider JamboPay has entered into an agreement with Lenovo Kenya for the supply and installation of a new computing system.

The Nutanix Xtreme computing platform will be installed in all JamoboPay data centers. The new platform is a powerful hyper converged computing and storage infrastructure, which is highly scalable with simplified resources management and security capabilities.

JamboPay said the new solution will support its rapid growth as it deepens its local payments services and expansion across Africa.

Global companies that have deployed Nutanix solution include EBay, Yahoo, Toyota, Panasonic, NASDAQ, AT&T, Airbus and the US Army. JamboPay is among the first companies in Africa to acquire the technology.

 “We are excited to work with Lenovo and Nutanix. Their technology allows for maximum availability, performance and scalability of our services,” said JamboPay Chief Executive Danson Muchemi in a statement.
