Headquartered in Johannesburg and founded in 1983, Dimension Data ( is among the world's largest global telecommunications service providers. Delivering Information and Communications Technology (ICT) services and solutions and with annual revenue of $5.8 billion dollars, Dimension Data serves 78% of the Fortune Global 100 and 62% of the Fortune Global 500.

On February 12, 2013, Dimension Data announced the rollout of new WAN optimization services between its Cloud data centers. Delivered as a value-add to the company's Managed Cloud Platform (MCP) customers, initial reports cite significant performance boosts, particularly with certain types of workloads. Transparent to customers and end-users, WAN optimization services are provided free of charge as part of the standard public Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering.  

This announcement will be of interest to current and potential customers, especially those running data-intensive workloads between distributed data centers. It is particularly relevant, for example, to customers leveraging Dimension Data's Cloud services for "Big Data" and bulk data transfers. The new service can significantly improve transfer rates for data-intensive services such as database replication, file synchronization, and backup and disaster recovery.
