Teraco will continue rapid expansion in its footprint, with an injection of R400-million increase in its medium term funding secured from Barclays Africa. Over the past three years, the company has expanded its footprint in the data centre environment with three state-of-the-art data centres located in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg, which combined, comprise 10 MVA of power plant, powering over 6,000 m2 of data centre space. Teraco is also home to NAPAfrica, Africa’s largest neutral layer-two internet exchange point (IXP), a home to more than 180 peers across sub-Saharan Africa. The Teraco facilities enable clients to deploy telecommunications equipment and other key IT infrastructure in a scalable way. The company  further provides clients with a secure environment where they are able to easily connect to submarine cable systems, local terrestrial networks, most major African IP backbones and key content aggregation hubs. The Barclays Africa funding facility will allow for the construction of a large new data centre in Johannesburg to meet continued client demand. The initial phases in the construction of the JB2 facility are projected to commence during the year.
