Data centre provider Teraco has completed work on its JB3 data centre facility, located within its Isando Campus in Ekurhuleni, east of Johannesburg.
JB3 comprises 45,000 square metres of building structure, 12,000 square metres of data hall space, and 29MW of critical power load.
When combined with the existing Isando Campus facilities, the critical power load totals 40MW across the campus data centre footprint with room for further growth, Teraco said.
Chief executive Jan Hnizdo said that the latest Isando Campus expansion meets the growing demand by both cloud providers and enterprises for data centre capacity.
Hnizdo said that enterprises are now accelerating their digital transformation strategies and focusing on cloud adoption strategies. This was evidenced by Teraco seeing continued growth in cloud adoption strategies.
“Our clients use the data centre to scale their IT infrastructure, adopt hybrid and multi-cloud architectures and interconnect with strategic business partners within the Teraco ecosystem. Over the last year, we have seen a 48% increase in direct interconnects to public cloud on-ramps, reflecting the increasing trend of cloud adoption by enterprises.”
