Data Centre Facilities

All data is continuously mirrored from Redstor's primary data centre to a secondary data centre for resilience and peace of mind. For redundancy, should one of these platforms fail, another platform can be made the primary or secondary.

Data sovereignty

Geographically local services

Redstor has invested heavily in data-centre facilities over a number of years to provide services with enterprise-level availability and resilience.
Extensive partnerships with Equinix, Internet Solutions, Teraco and Everest ensure that Redstor provides geographically local services, guaranteeing data sovereignty, regardless of a customer’s location.

  • Optimal performance

    Data centres have enough fuel onsite to provide 24 to 48 hours of emergency power, using backup generators, and Redstor has guaranteed fuel-delivery contracts to replenish those supplies. Routine daily, weekly and monthly maintenance ensures optimal performance without interruption to data centre services.

  • Tried and trusted

    Primary and secondary facility hosted in certified, purpose built, vendor neutral, data centres which make Redstor services available to Africa's largest ecosystem of interconnected networks.

  • Unparalleled connectivity

    Border Gateway Protocol allows Redstor to peer seamlessly with the internet. Our ISP dual-homed connectivity provides the scalability and redundancy our customers demand. This includes on-net connectivity to more than 130 data centres globally, a global fibre-based network with high speed and low latency, and more than 1,000 network points of presence globally.

  • Fire suppression

    Redstor's data centres are protected by multi-zoned, dry-pipe, double-interlock, pre-action fire suppression as well as Very Early Smoke Detection and Alarm (VESDA). All diesel generators and tanks are kept separate.

Access to the data centres is restricted and can only be granted to authorised Redstor personnel.
