Potential customers often ask us what our relationship with the data centers that we do business with is like.
We are making use of co-location technology at these data centers. This means that we are being provided rack space, up links (data connectivity) and power (A and B feed with UPS backup and generator fail over).
We are currently situated in the Midrand Data Centre of Xneelo (Pty Ltd).
We are in no way affiliated with Xneelo other than procuring space, data and power.
