NetActuate, a U.S. provider of bare metal servers, virtual machines, and colocation services operating one of the world’s largest networks, has announced the completion of major connectivity and bare metal capacity upgrades in their Johannesburg data center.
The Johannesburg data center of NetActuate is strategically located in Ekurhuleni, a major trade and industry hub. Johannesburg is home to Africa’s largest stock exchange (JSE), as well as numerous multinational corporations. NetActuate’s Johannesburg data center is protected by “redundant, best-in-class” power infrastructure and security measures, including biometric access and 24/7 video surveillance.
In this data center, customers can “benefit” from direct access to NAPAfrica, the largest Internet exchange on the African continent. Direct connectivity to AWS, GCP, and Azure is also available from this facility.
“We have seen a growing demand for resilient, low latency application delivery to end users across African markets,” said Mark Mahle, CEO and Principal Technology Architect of NetActuate. “These upgrades in Johannesburg have established it as our core point of presence for expansion to new locations in Africa.”
NetActuate’s Johannesburg data center is certified compliant for PCI-DSS, ISO 27001, and ISO 9001. Customers can leverage NetActuate’s cross-border expertise in shipping and customs for redundant, secured colocation of equipment.
Service providers can deploy and expand their global presence on NetActuate’s Anycast Delivery Platform, built on one of the largest peered IPv4 and IPv6 networks in the world. Purpose built to deliver “low latency and high reliability” across diverse global markets, NetActuate’s anycast platform is available from their Johannesburg data center, as well as over 30 U.S. and global locations.
