Premium infrastructure and unrivalled connectivity

The concept of organisations using a single technology tool to perform a single task is history.

With information technology at the heart of business, the infrastructure that supports it has become increasingly important.

Has creating a resilient, highly-connected data centre environment become a costly distraction from your core business activity?

As a data centre specialist, we offer an alternative. Co-location hosting with inter-data centre connectivity, to enable our clients to extend their hosting network between two IS data centres in Johannesburg.

Cloud Rack is a solution that takes all the associated factors into account: world class data centres, premium hosting space and unrivalled fibre connectivity.

Our Cloud Rack solution provides you with rackspace in two separate IS data centres with fibre connectivity between the two hosting facilities, via the IS Fibre backbone, extending your hosting network.

IS’ data centres are equipped with a wide range of security, power management, cooling and network access equipment. Biometric sensors, security cameras and secure access are the first items encountered onsite. In addition to hundreds of servers, power regulation systems, diesel generators and air conditioning systems are vital aspects of the facilities. Connectivity to the data centres is assured by multiple black fibres accessing the buildings’ telco rooms through diverse entry points.

All infrastructure is totally controlled and managed by IS’ team of hosting infrastructure experts. The service provides network monitoring and standard monitoring on all devices hosted within the Cloud Rack solution, backed by a 24x7x365 team of technical support engineers.

Cloud24-7 provides the Cloud Rack Solution in a variety of different configurations – Bronze, Silver or Gold. Single or dual path connectivity between data centres is provisioned with 100, 200,300, 500, 800 Mbps or 1Gbps fibre. Dual path solutions provide failover should one fibre link become unavailable – services will automatically move to the second fibre link.

Unmatched SecUrity
Advanced secure-space options boasting dedicated locked cabinets within the IS data centres, satisfy your organisation’s stringent security requirements. We pride ourself on building advanced, cutting-edge, multi-level physical security into every data centre to ensure that your infrastructure isn’t compromised. IS Cloud Security also provides an extensive array of sophisticated managed security services that supplement our standard security measures.

Cloud24-7/IS develops and deploys sophisticated supporting infrastructure to provide reliable and consistent connectivity, power, availability and cooling.
