FOUR KEY REASONS WHY YOU NEED OUR DATA CENTRE SOLUTION
In our data-driven economy, downtime has really become a ‘four-letter word’.
You can’t afford to be held up or slowed down because your data centre infrastructure isn’t keeping up with the increasing size and volume of data used by your business applications, systems and services.
With our Cloud Rack and Hybrid Cloud Rack hosting services, you can extend your data centre storage infrastructure without extensive setup and maintenance costs.
By connecting to one of our high-performing data centre facilities, you’ll be able to host your data and applications securely, ensuring quick access and on-demand availability, all the time.

Optimum performance for any level of demand
Our Cloud Rack hosting solutions are designed to help you 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:
To ensure full continuity, our data centre facilities are built in accordance with TIA-942 Tier 3 data centre design principles. Because they’re designed to save energy and optimise power consumption, they’re more efficient, less costly to run, and emit fewer greenhouse gases - all of which contributes to containing costs and meeting sustainability targets. Service level agreements are in place to guarantee redundancy and uptime.
The fully redundant IS fibre optic network means you can enjoy fast access to hosted data and services. Multiple connectivity failovers are available through wireless and satellite links. Our data centres are telco agnostic, so you can break out of the data centre on any network.
We guarantee a stable power supply, as our data centres are equipped with uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems and generator power to protect against power surges, spikes and outages (including load shedding).
Our expert engineers are on site 24/7 for maintenance and support.
A variety of configurations are available to suit your requirements
With the Cloud Rack solution, you receive allocated space in two separate Internet Solutions data centres, which are linked with single or dual-path fibre connectivity (100 Mbps to 1 Gbps).
A variety of configurations are available to suit your connectivity and rack requirements.
Connectivity is assured by multiple black fibres that access the data centre telco rooms through diverse entry points.
Connect your data centre to the required number of racks in our Gauteng data centre with a layer 2 LAN extension between your on-site infrastructure and ours.
Connectivity is facilitated through our fibre backbone, which is available in a variety of line speeds.
Managing the physical components of your Cloud Rack services is made easier with Smart Hands, an additional support option that gives you access to our expert engineers, 24/7.
If you need them to push a button, toggle a switch, rack new server equipment or change hardware components, they’ll act on your instruction and physically intervene on a server, switch or firewall when you aren’t able to do so yourself.
Maintain productivity and provide for business continuity
It makes sense to outsource your data centre hardware and support to experts, rather than building and running your own data centre facility.
When the volume and complexity of services that run from the data centre expand, you can scale up your data centre services accordingly, without having to invest directly in the additional hardware, space and skills. And, by paying only for the cloud rack space and power you need, you’re better able to manage and control data centre costs.
Remote management allows your administrators to manage and monitor servers in the data centre from wherever they are.
