More on BCX Data Centre Solutions
Business Connexion develops cost-effective, tailor-made data centre solutions for companies in a variety of industries. They own a Tier IV Design-Certified data Centre, of which only a handful exist worldwide, and their data centre specialist Persetel Q Vector is one of the leading providers in the data centre industry in South Africa. By providing services such as storage area networks, enterprise storage, server consolidation, data sharing and virtualization, and infrastructure design, Business Connexion and Persetel Q Vector are able to create a customized data centre for each client that reduces costs while increasing efficiency. Partnerships with well-known leaders in the data centre industry, such as HP and Sun Microsystems, allow Business Connexion to provide high-quality services and products to their clients, while their data Centre Operations Services staff are dedicated and experienced professionals who constantly monitor daily operations within the data centre to ensure that it is running smoothly.
Often, a company will struggle with a data centre which was built with rapid application deployment and departmentalized accountability in mind; the problems with this type of data centre stem from the fact that it was constructed without any sort of uniformity between the various systems and hardware incorporated therein. These types of data centres may have served their purpose at the time, but they can't keep up with the increasing demands of newer technology, and are expensive to maintain. Therefore, Business Connexion helps companies to lower their costs and become more efficient by creating customized data centres for each business which have greater capabilities, and are cheaper to maintain, than older systems. Business Connexion provides other services in addition to creating data centres; for example, they offer data protection, ensuring that a company's sensitive information is kept private, and out of the hands of corporate spies.
They also offer database backup and recovery services, so that crucial information isn't lost in the event that the system is somehow compromised. The data centre is monitored remotely by knowledgeable and experienced personnel who ensure its reliability, while also offering technical support to end users and other staff. Founded over three decades ago, Business Connexion is now one of the premier providers of data centre and information and communications technology (ICT) services. The top forty JSE companies use Business Connexion for all of their ICT needs, and the company is steadily expanding from their origins in South Africa to the northern part of the continent, and also into Europe. Their top-level certification with many of the world's leading ICT suppliers allows them to provide each of their clients with cost-effective, secure and reliable data centre solutions for retail, government, telecommunications and other industries.
