Datacentrix is to acquire 100% of eNetworks, an Internet service and networks specialist, for an undisclosed sum.
eNetworks was established in 1999 and provides fast, reliable bandwidth and Internet services including cloud hosting, Web hosting and VoIP. Based in Cape Town, the company has core infrastructure located in data centres in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. Over the years, eNetworks has achieved recognition for its expertise in WAN services, Internet access provisioning, security and e-mail systems.

Datacentrix says that the rationale behind the acquisition is to grow and enhance its cloud computing capabilities.

“The acquisition provides Datacentrix access to highly skilled resources, electronic communications networks and licences, thereby strengthening Datacentrix’s capability to build, operate and provide network services,” it says.
