Data Centre Facilities Consulting

Introduction to Data Centre Facilities Consulting

The smooth running of ICT operations is crucial to any business’ success – especially in today’s digitally advanced world – and many organisations are recognising the value of investing time and money into building their own secure, state-of-the art data centres. As Africa’s premier end-to-end digital solutions provider, with no less than 12 data centres across the country, we’re happy to share our expertise with clients wishing to design, build and manage their own data centres.

What is Data Centre Facilities Consulting?

While smaller businesses may still get away with keeping their IT assets in a dedicated room somewhere at the back of the building, companies with complex ICT requirements are starting to see the value in owning and managing their own data centres. Our data centre specialists have years of experience in this regards, and offer consulting services to assist clients in designing, building and maintaining world-class facilities.

Consultations are a two-step process designed to assess various aspects pertaining to the proposed data centre, and provide practical recommendations based on their evaluations and expertise.

More About Data Centre Facilities Consulting

The decision to set up a data centre for your business not only has massive financial implications, but it will also have a major impact on the way your company operates in the future. While data centres are seen by many leading organisations as a sound investment that will show good returns, receiving the wrong advice from the wrong people at the wrong time can have disastrous consequences for your business.

That is why we offer a comprehensive consulting service to organisations wishing to design, build and maintain their own data centres. In order to help you make all the right decisions, our team of data centre specialists will work together closely with you to conduct various assessments pertaining to your proposed plans for the data centre, and then provide recommendations.
