Network Platforms, a South African IT solutions provider has brought its data centre offering in Cape Town online and has the capacity to rollout service from Teraco Isando and Teraco Cape Town – to facilitate virtual and co-location service delivery.

In June 2013 the Company completed the move of its entire datacentre infrastructure from its old environment to its current location, Teraco, in Isando.

Teraco offers neutral data centres and co-location facilities throughout the country. The environment provides comprehensive services to govern telecommunications, cloud or hosting requirements.

 Network Platform utilised the strength of connectivity and centralised infrastructure within the Teraco environment to secure a substantial reduction in cost and reliability – and being able to deliver customised solutions at very short notice.

Today, with its high availability, multiple links network and connectivity to international capacity resources such as SAT3, Seacom, WACS and Easy, it is in a strong position to leverage these resources and offer collocation and virtual server offerings.

“We are able to provide the benefit of high availability and disaster recovery solutions between data centres, as well as bandwidth offerings from these centres,” says Warwick Ward-Cox, MD of Network Platforms.

Established in 2003, the Company has served as the premier service provider to clients for over a decade. Over the years the company has fine-tuned its service portfolio and adapted to the ever-changing dynamics and emerging trends that characterise the domestic technology industry.

 Its value proposition lies in solutions that address requirements related to ADSL connectivity, Diginet; Fibre, Microwave and 3G connectivity, IT management, VPN management, infrastructure monitoring, IP PBX/ VoIP and cloud services.
