Carrier neutral colo player Teraco Data Environments opened its third data center in the South African city of Durban at a place called River Horse Valley.
Phase one of the site saw 600 sq mt of the site open for business with 1,000 sq mt planned. The site has 1MVA of critical power of 1MVA and cooling for 5kVA per cabinet.
Reports said Dark fibre Africa, MWeb, Telkom, Neotel, Bitco, Continuity Solutions, Vox Telecom and Broadband Infraco are current tenants.
Teraco is expanding rapidly with sites already opened in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
“KwaZulu Natal has a robust economy with an established industrial base, a strong commercial sector and excellent services, especially in the telecoms space. We are seeing rapid growth in office park developments catering to high-tech companies, and expansions to the ports and airports will be catalysts for a local economic boom,” says Lex van Wyk, managing director of Teraco.
“The communications infrastructure growth here with Durban’s progressive fibre broadband strategy and the landing of the SEACOM and EASSy cables makes the city an important new operational hub for Teraco.”
