Teraco, a colocation data centre operator and Internet exchange hub, says it has started construction on a third data centre in Cape Town, due to increasing demand.

The new site, within Great Westerford, has targeted completion date of April 2014 and will result in an increased 1,000sqm of white space, growing the total footprint in Cape Town to over 1,600sqm. Power to the facility will also increase to 3-megaVolt Ampere (MVA).

Teraco said its data centre in Rondebosch continues to grow on the back of strong demand for vendor neutral data centre colocation services. The facility first opened its doors in February 2009 and is now the most connected building in the city of Cape Town.

Corporate clients are able to access services from a selection of over 30 local and global carriers including DFA, Telkom, Neotel, MTN, Vodacom, Cell C, British Telecoms, Level 3 Communications and Seacom.

“Vendor-neutral means that Teraco customers can connect to any network operator, service provider or any other Teraco client within the data centre, without restriction. We remain neutral and offer clients the freedom of choice to purchase or sell products and services to whomever they wish,” said Lex van Wyk, chief executive officer of Teraco.

“Expansion of Cape Town’s data centre essentially means we will continue to contribute to the improvement of Cape Town’s business economy and support the city with its drive to improve connectedness, technology and enhance innovation as a key hub in the South African market.”
