Our state-of-the-art, carrier-neutral data centre facility in Cape Town provides rack space and colocation services to meet the rising demand for cloud-based services in Southern Africa.
Currently the Cape Town facility provides 1,800 square metres of secured rack space with 5.5 MW of power. Expansion is planned for 2021 where the facility will be developed to 6,000 square meters and 25 MW power.
Connected by the fibre routes of many major carriers, the facility also host leading internet exchanges independently operated by INX-ZA – enabling connected members in any site to peer quickly and cost effectively with members in other data centres.
