Data Centre Overview
Snowball’s data centre is ideally situated at GMT+2 in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Nearby is Cape Town, an international city that buzzes throughout the year. Many international firms have established a foothold here and many technology skills are available. Snowball’s data centre is ideal for your primary or secondary (backup) data centre needs.
Our first facility was built in 1998 and this is our third iteration. Particular care was taken with regards to power redundancy and we are proud of the 100% power uptime we have had since inception in 2010. Over 1300 environmental and IP parameters are monitored on a 24×7 basis in order to ensure the smooth running of the data centre and the network.
We are connected to all major backbones in South Africa, and very low latency is achieved to other data centres such as Teraco, Telkom, Neotel, and NAPAfrica.
In addition to superior local connectivity, Snowball also connects to all major fibre routes running through Africa, including SAT3/SAFE, Seacom and WACS.
