Angani Virtual Machines: All You Need To Know

Are you looking to scale your business’s IT infrastructure without the massive upfront costs? Angani’s virtual machines are the solution. As the leading cloud computing provider in East Africa, Angani makes it easy and affordable to get the computing power you need with secure and reliable infrastructure.

What are Virtual Machines?

A virtual machine (VM) is a software program that mimics a physical computer. It runs its own operating system and applications like a standalone server, but shares resources with the physical machine it runs on.

Angani provisions VMs on powerful servers located in data centers in Nairobi. You can lease these VMs to deploy servers, databases, analytics tools, websites, and any other workload you need. It’s like having a dedicated server, but without having to purchase and maintain the physical hardware.

With Angani’s VMs, you only pay for the compute resources you use. There are no upfront costs for hardware. You can quickly scale up or down as your needs change.

Benefits of Angani’s Virtual Machines

Reduced Costs

Since VMs share resources with other VMs on the same physical server, they are far more cost-effective than purchasing stand-alone servers. You avoid capital expenditures on hardware and reduce operating costs like power, cooling, and physical space.


Spin up new VMs within minutes to support changing business needs. Scale up your existing VMs by allocating more CPU, memory, or storage resources. Their portal and API make it simple to manage your VMs.

High Availability

Angani provides 99.95% uptime for your mission-critical workloads. Angani VMs leverage clustered hypervisor hosts and shared storage. If a physical host fails, your VMs automatically restart on another host.


Your VMs are completely isolated and secure on their enterprise-grade virtualization platform. Network traffic between VMs is private. Angani uses role-based access control, so only authorized users can access your environment.

Managed Services

Angani’s engineers proactively monitor your VMs 24/7. We handle infrastructure maintenance like patching and upgrades behind the scenes so you can focus on your applications. Additional managed services like backups and load balancing are available.
