Local Hosting Company Expands Capacity


Local specialist web hosting company, Hetzner, has expanded its Cape Town Great Westerford data centre facilities, adding over 20% national capacity to meet customer demand.

Deon de Villiers, managing director of Hetzner, says that the latest extension features energy efficient cooling and UPS systems in addition to well-proven, innovative engineering solutions that enhance flexibility, resilience and performance.

“With this facility we are returning to designing and operating our own facilities in close collaboration with our engineering colleagues in Germany.  Managing our own facility gives us control over the engineering detail of the hosting environment, which will enhance the long-term value proposition for our customers.  All new server orders will be provisioned in this facility.

“In all that we do, our concern is for the customer.  We believe they would be delighted with the investment and engineering that has gone into this expansion if they could peak under the hood,” concludes de Villiers.
