Teraco, a large interconnection hub and vendor-neutral data centre provider, has completed the expansion of its DB1 facility, the largest data centre in KwaZulu-Natal
Teraco DB1 is a strategic interconnection hub on the African subsea cable map with direct access to Seacom, EASSy, MÉTISS, and soon-to-be-deployed 2Africa cable systems. The facility is connected to the Teraco campus in Isando, Johannesburg, enabling clients to increase the number of partners they connect with and reach new markets.
The expansion of the facility was prompted by mounting demand for additional data centre capacity due to the growing number of digitally-connected enterprises in the city and the growth of it as a manufacturing hub. DB1’s capacity has now doubled to 2.2MW of critical power load and comprises 5,800 sq m of building structure accommodating more than 700 racks.
It provides clients with direct access to Platform Teraco, an ecosystem of more than 250 network providers, global cloud on-ramps, subsea cable systems, access to over 100 managed service providers, and direct peering at NAPAfrica.
