We are open and transparent about the work we do and how we do it.
OUR DATA CENTRES AND NETWORKS
Local: Teraco is South Africa's largest independent hosting data centre. Teraco Data Environments are built to the highest specification according to global best practices; security, fire monitoring, prevention, power supply and cooling are all governed by a 100% resiliency policy (one passive set of components for every active set to protect valuable data systems). Teraco provides 99.999% guaranteed levels of uptime, power and service availability.
The network is powered by Juniper carrier grade network equipment connected to our upstream provider AfricaINX, within the Carrier Hotel Environment. This is the most secured and up-market environment to host mission critical information within Africa. Teraco data centres are located on the fibre rings of major licensed carriers in South Africa, all of which have fibre nodes within the facilities. There are easily accessible for us to provide a more redundant network and direct peering with all major network providers.
International: LSN Dallas, TX USA - Tier 3+ Data Center - Formally the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, this is the most secure data center in the central United States.
Our data center (code named DLLSTX2) is located in the heart of downtown Dallas, TX. It is in a Tier 3+ facility on the same protected power grid as Dallas 911 and the local hospitals. This means we are exempt from rolling blackouts that historically have been an occurrence due to the Texas summer heat. Power is sent to the data center from four different substations, requiring all four substations to go offline before power to the building is interrupted. Additionally, the data center is serviced by water feeds from the north and south of the building.

Every aspect of our network has been designed for maximum redundancy. Every server has an active/passive automatic failover uplink, to two individual Cisco switches which each have a dedicated 1Gbps uplink to the datacentre’s redundant core switches. We utilise dual power feeds from the datacentre to our server cabinets, these are distributed by APC power distribution bars to provide dual power feeds to every server. Our Dell and Supermicro servers are protected by hardware RAID10 for all storage. In the unlikely event of any failures, we hold a full stock inventory of every component in our network, located on-site for prompt replacement.
