EOH has taken up cabinet space at Teraco Data Environments' Isando facility to host some of its clients’ web sites and provide outsourced services.
EOH is a R1,3-billion JSE-listed technology and outsourcing provider, offering medium to large enterprises in South Africa and selected African countries with a complete managed services portfolio.'“The addition of EOH to our vendor neutral data centre will give companies already colocating with Teraco even more flexibility in their choice of service providers,” says Lex van Wyk, MD of Teraco. “Colocation is a more affordable option for EOH than building its own data centre as it can eliminate the last mile cost.
"EOH will also benefit from the free market of connectivity within Teraco, enabling it to on-sell its services to the whole community of companies already leasing space in our data centre.”
EOH intends to provide a growing range of services from within Teraco, including hosting client’s applications and databases, extending this to their Infrastructure and operating systems. Its new location with access to multiple carriers and service providers in Teraco presents a particularly attractive option to international companies that want to establish a presence in South Africa, but don’t want the accompanying IT management headache.
“Teraco gives us a stable, world-class data centre environment from which to provide our technology services,” says Rob Godlonton, executive director at EOH. “Its business model also provides us with the neutrality that’s so important to us as a provider of customer-centric managed services.”
