Teraco completes hyperscale data centre

Teraco completes Hyperscale data centre.

Teraco, a provider of cloud and vendor-neutral data environments has announced the completion of their Hyperscale data centre, JB2-Bredell. The Bredell Hyperscale Data Centre Facility located in Bredell, South Africa features over 24 MW of power and 6000m² of technical deployment space.

Gys Geyser, Head of Infrastructure Development, Teraco says that the build has not only been the first of its kind, but done in record time: “This is another Teraco first as we broke the mould of traditional brick and mortar buildings, and opted for a warehouse-type build instead.”

He says that Teraco designed the facility incorporating different elements of tiering solutions and industry best practices to ensure concurrent maintainability, with added enhancements to cover different levels of fault tolerance. “We were able to double the power and cooling capacity, using similar mission-critical footprints gained from previous deployments.”

Bredell is the fourth facility built by Teraco, who also has locations in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg (Isando). Current power provision totals 50MW with over 18 000m2 of white space.

“Bredell is another incredible achievement and we are excited to welcome our first tenant this month, and look forward to watching Bredell play an important role in the development of Africa’s internet economy.”
