Teraco pumps R4bn into Africa’s largest data centre project
Carrier- and cloud-neutral colocation data centre solutions provider Teraco Data Environments today announced construction has commenced on a new hyperscale data centre, with 38-megawatts (MW) of critical power load, in Ekurhuleni, east of Johannesburg.
Teraco has access to an open access platform. If you are deployed in Teraco, you can access whichever carrier you want because we don’t sell carrier services.
Teraco continues to invest significantly in the region’s ICT infrastructure and has built what is now Africa’s largest data centre platform.
JB4 will be the largest single site data centre on the African continent, comprising 50 000sqm of building structure serviced by 80MW of utility power supply.
JB4 is a significant addition to South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa’s data centre footprint.
The new data centre development is being built in line with global hyperscale requirements, as well as international compliance standards, and will augment the existing portfolio of ISO9001, ISO27001, PCI-DSS and ISAE3402 certified data centre facilities.
