TELECOMS: Neotel's New Centre In Cape Town
Recent Western Cape Business News
Following significant market demand for Neotel’s hosting services, Neotel has increased its portfolio of Data Centre facilities with the launch of a second Tier 3 Data Centre in Cape Town. Neotel’s first state-of-art Data Centre was launched in June 2009 at the Neotel premises in Midrand, Johannesburg.
The new data centre builds on Neotel’s strength in providing outsourced hosting services, managed services and hosted applications that have already generated interest from several large enterprises.
Neotel data centres are an example of a fresh new approach in the South African market. They are modular in design, with high-energy efficient technologies allowing the highest data centre cooling density. Improved cooling techniques will further limit excess power utilisation. By hosting at these centres, customers will not only reduce their risk of hikes in operational costs due to potential price increases for energy but more importantly reduce their carbon footprints.
“We have already reached 100% utilisation of the first phase of our Data Centre in Midrand while the second expansion phase is already 50% subscribed. With the opening of a second Data Centre in Cape Town, businesses in Cape Town now have the opportunity to make use of our facilities while unlocking the opportunity for businesses to host both their production and business continuity sites”, says Wandile Zote Executive Head of Communication at Neotel.
“Our clients recognise Neotel’s professionalism and data centre expertise which focuses strongly on proactive management and maintenance to ensure unmatched uptime and reliability. The Data Centre is home to a number of managed hosting and virtual hosting services, including Managed Storage and Backup, Virtual Firewall and Server Virtualisation services. Through these services, we manage the hosting of a client’s business platforms and application servers whilst leveraging off Neotel’s significant economies of scale. Our data centres provide flexibility of choosing from hosting floor space to racks to platforms. We meet clients half way, extending competitive pricing to ensure the service offered is market related and gives fair value – particularly in today’s tough times,” he adds.
Neotel is committed to introducing more services to the market to add even further value to our customers. This augments the plans for organisations that look at optimizing their efficiencies and reducing the costs of keeping up with technology modernization.
