In order to deliver effective cloud and connectivity services, we understand that the underlying infrastructure needs to be robust, secure and cost-effective.

We have invested a lot of time and resources in planning and deploying our cloud environment, ensuring that our customers benefit from the best available technology and connectivity across our global selection of data centres and carriers.

For our data centre requirements, we utilize state-of-the-art facilities in South Africa, Europe and the USA and for our connectivity requirements we've partnered with Echo Service Provider, a Johannesburg based independent network aggregator.

South Africa - Johannesburg (JB1)

Opened in January 2010, the first phase of JB1, the Johannesburg based colocation data centre environment was set over 1250sqm. Current expansion phases will increase the colocation data centre floor space to over 3 850sqm. The Johannesburg data centre is fed by municipal power feeds which provide 6MVA power.

  • Multiple cooling zones with independent CRAC units
  • Temperature controlled and maintained between 22°C and 30°C
  • Relative humidity maintained between 40% and 60%
  • Hot aisle containment
  • Data centre positive pressure to ensure a dust-free environment
  • Independent humidity and temperature monitoring in all plenums
  • Comprehensive perimeter and building security, with 'zones within zones' for multiple levels of security
  • Pre-authorisation required for data centre access according to Teraco's Access Policy
  • A visitor's identity is visually confirmed against a picture on a named user list, with additional biometric confirmation through fingerprint imaging
  • Service areas are physically separated from data centre areas
  • Continuous video surveillance of all zones and cabinets
  • Comprehensive audit logs are maintained on all site access
Physical Infrastructure
  • Cabinets comprise of either 43 or 47U racks
  • An additional 200mm of depth is added per cabinet, making each cabinet 1200mm deep, allowing space for wiring, air flow and access
  • All cabinets have unique locks, ensuring that only approved personnel are able to gain access
  • Perforated front and back doors, allows for 86% air flow
  • Site walls are 600mm thick
  • All major network operators present in the Carrier Hotel
  • There are interconnect cabinets on each row in the colocation area
  • Any point within the data centre can be connected to any other via multiple routes
  • Cabling for single and multimode fibre, Cat 6 UTP or GPO copper, can be arranged
  • All cabling vendors are certified
  • All cabling is managed by structured cabling policies and is implemented by Teraco technicians to guarantee availability
Fire Protection
  • JB1 has pro-active fire monitoring systems and incorporates best practice fire protection and prevention procedures
  • There is multi-zone monitoring within all plenums and the energy centres
  • Diesel generators and tanks are physically separate
  • All monitoring and fire protection equipment is fed via an independant power source
  • Alarms and early warning messages alert technicians on duty
  • All areas have 24x7 intelligent monitoring and video surveillance with integrated motion sensors
  • A unified building monitoring system logs all security and environment data
  • Municipal power feed provides 6MVA to the data centre
  • Resilient diesel backup generators are fuelled to provide 5 days of power boosted by guaranteed diesel delivery should the municipal supply fail
  • Power is cascaded to multiple resilient distribution boards that enable the servicing of multiple zones
  • Fully online UPSs ensure frequency, voltage and surge stability
  • Power Distribution Unit technology is able to manage the power down to socket level within cabinets, in addition to remote management capabilities reducing the need to physically enter the site
  • Power is supplied in 1.1KVA increments, from 1.1KVA per cabinet upwards. Higher power configurations are available
