Our hosting partner, Hetzner, is taking a phased approach with the first of five data centres currently under construction, in what is to become a sophisticated Data Centre Park. Construction is underway for a state-of-the art data centre in Samrand (Gauteng), which is expected to open its doors late 2013. The new facility, with a hosting space of 1 200m², will increase the company’s national capacity to meet growing customer demand as well as allow Hetzner to expand its existing product line with the introduction of co-location services to the Gauteng market. Hetzner’s Data Centre Park:
- Provides long term data centre capacity for Hetzner SA.
- Is expected to host approximately 12 000 servers.
- Gives Hetzner independence from any particular network provider.
