World Class Data
Our Data Centre Park in Samrand replicates Hetzner Online’s award-winning, energy efficient German facilities and is currently our default hosting location. The facility is not in a direct flight path or low lying area and is centrally located between Johannesburg and Pretoria with a major power substation close by. A geotechnical audit has been done to ensure ground stability. Hetzner houses servers in data centres across three locations: Samrand (Gauteng), Cape Town and Germany. Colocation hosting is only offered in our Samrand facility.
Our fully redundant, physically separated A+B feeds provide power to the facility. This means that a single utility power feed can be disconnected without affecting your service. Equipment with a single power supply also benefits from this redundancy through our sophisticated static transfer switch design. The average power per square meter is 3.5 kW / m2.
The Hetzner network is multi-homed with multiple uplinks per data centre via our upstream providers, EOH Carrier Services and Metrofibre Networx. Should a network failure occur, traffic is automatically rerouted via alternate uplinks, significantly increasing our network resilience.
Temperature and humidity conditions are within the generally acceptable boundaries set by the American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). All our air conditioning units have N+2 redundancy. When ambient temperature allows for it, we make use of direct free cooling, significantly reducing our power consumption and carbon footprint.
Juniper offers a high-performance network infrastructure with a highly responsive environment for accelerating the deployment of services.
Our security features include a 24/7 security presence with CCTV camera surveillance. The facility also has a high voltage electric fence, providing perimeter security.
The facility has fire detection through Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus (VESDA).
