Your data centre is the hub that supports the applications you use and should enable people to connect quickly to the tools they use to transact, collaborate and communicate.

Fast, reliable data centre connectivity is essential for all components to work and deliver optimum performance.

Our Interconnection, Structured Cabling and Hosting Traffic services give you a number of choices for connecting into and out of our data centres.

You also have the option of using our 24/7 Smart Hands service, should you need one of our expert engineers to physically intervene on a server, firewall or switch.

Extend your hosting network

Infrastructure and connectivity to boost your business

Optimum performance for any level of demand

Our data centre networking allow you to focus on what you do best while enjoying the benefits of a secure, high-performing “intelligence centre” that offers fast, reliable access to business applications, and enables cloud, unified communications and collaboration solutions.

All our data centres have the following features to guarantee availability and uptime:

Infrastructure

To ensure full continuity, our data centre facilities are built in accordance with TIA-942 Tier 3 data centre design principles. We also have set service level agreements in place to guarantee redundancy and uptime. Best of all, the infrastructure is less costly to run as our data centres are designed to save energy and optimise power consumption. This makes them more efficient and reduces the impact on the environment.

Connectivity

Our telco-agnostic data centres give you the flexibility to connect to any network operator within our data centres. In addition, our fully redundant hosting network enables access to services such as MPLS, Enterprise Internet Access, Hosting Traffic and security.

Power

Power surges, spikes and outages (including load shedding) can be a thing of the past. Our data centres are equipped with uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems and generator power, so we can guarantee a stable power supply.

Physical and virtual security

  • It is important that your organisation meets governance requirements for data security and protection, and our security measures have been designed to help you do just that.
  • Unauthorised people will not be able to access our data centres thanks to our refined access control and surveillance systems.
  • The data centre and rack space are protected against any fire damage by relying on our fire-suppression systems that meet international standards.
  • Your information is kept safe from hacking and cybercrime attacks, as we ensure that the latest firewalls and network access-control systems are put in place to protect the data centre.

24/7 support

With our expert engineers on site 24/7 you can rest easy knowing the necessary maintenance and support will be there to keep your data centre connectivity running.

A platform for productivity and performance

Structured cabling and data centre hosting solutions to cater for your requirements

Options to connect to our data centre

Our data centre networking solutions offer a number of choices for connecting to business partners, carriers, Internet exchanges and services between data centres. Whether you opt for one of our structured cable options or use our Hosting Traffic services, you can rest assured you will receive 24/7 support on a cloud networking platform that is designed for reliability and speed.

Interconnection

Interconnection gives you the freedom to choose your infrastructure partners and network carriers by providing physical cabling between your infrastructure, business partners or third-party network providers and carriers.

Structured Cabling

Structured Cabling is a data centre networking service that allows for physical copper or fibre connections between your racks as well as to other co-location clients within the data centre.

Hosting Traffic

  • Hosting Traffic provides you with a high-speed connection to the internet, and you pay only for the inbound or outbound traffic, whichever is the greater.

  • Servers are connected directly to the IS Internet backbone, so there’s no bottleneck between the server and the Internet. When tapping into our data centre connectivity traffic is unlimited and unrestricted, which means your end users can expect quick response times. This provides a significant advantage over servers hosted on- premises, where the (often unreliable) line leased for the Internet can create a bottleneck between the server and the Internet.

Smart Hands

They’ll be able to work on equipment and racks when you can’t, and will act on your instruction to do anything from toggling a switch to changing hardware components so you can get the most out of your data centre networking environment.

Seamless management and scalability

An outsourced data centre hosting solution that guarantees uptime

Cost-saving solutions that adapt to your business needs

It makes sense to outsource your data centre infrastructure to experts rather than building and running your own data centre facility.

For starters, you don’t have to worry about investing directly in the additional infrastructure, rack space and skills needed to expand your data centre. When the volume and complexity of services that run from the data centre expand, you can simply scale up your data centre services accordingly.

Building and running your own data centre connectivity infrastructure could cost more than just the initial outlay: sometimes you spend valuable financial resources paying infrastructure you might never use, or you keep purchasing and adding additional resources to keep up with demand, which turns budgeting into an unpredictable and volatile nightmare. By working with our outsourced data centre networking co-location solution, you can better manage and control data centre costs, because you only pay for the rack space and power you need and use.
