Teraco completes hyperscale data centre in Cape Town

Written by Thu 14 Oct 2021

Teraco Data Environments, a leading data centre services provider in South Africa, has completed a new hyperscale data centre in Brackenfell, Cape Town. The data centre, known as CT2, is Teraco’s second data centre campus in Cape Town and the largest in the Western Cape.

The company has completed phase 1 of the CT2 build-out at 25,000 square metres of space – 8,000 of which are the data halls – with 18 MW of capacity. Teraco has also acquired adjacent land that it intends to use to expand the facility in the future, doubling capacity when completed to a total of 36 MW.

CT2 supports Teraco’s offering of comprehensive network services that are scalable, reliable and secure. Teraco CEO, Jan Hnizdo, noted that the Teraco platform is a vital part of the growing digitization of enterprise organisations in the region. “Enterprises are looking for the ability to scale as network strategies evolve,” he said. “In a world where fast and secure interconnection with strategic business partners is a priority, this is a source of competitive advantage.”

“Over the last few years, we have taken our ever-expanding ecosystems and network-dense interconnection hubs and moved beyond simple colocation. Teraco is the enterprise infrastructure platform for growth and innovation.”

This is not the extent of Teraco’s expansion, however. Earlier this year, Teraco completed the buildout of another facility: JB3, the company’s third data centre in the Johannesburg area. JB3 includes 12,000 square metres of data hall space, providing 29 MW of critical power load. Additionally, the company announced that it plans to add a fourth facility in Ekurhuleni, JB4, which will add another 38MW capacity and is expected to open in early 2022.
