South African IT solutions provider Network Platforms has extended its promotion of complimentary 1u of rack space via Teraco Datacentres in Cape Town and Johannesburg for those businesses that invest in its bandwidth.
Customers are eligible to take advantage of this promotion if they take out 2MB of uncontended bandwidth, billed at R2 200 per month exc VAT.
The uncontended bandwidth is 1:1 on local and international, and international cable systems used include SAT3, WACS, EASY and SEACOM.
The bandwidth is redundant and available on all the above cable systems, with peering at the local exchanges.
“We can also offer contended services with contentions of 1:4 and 1:10, with a minimum of 5MB and 10MB respectively,” explains Warwick Ward-Cox, MD of Network Platforms.
1:4 is priced at R575 exc. VAT per 1Mbps
1:10 is priced at R250 exc. VAT per 1Mbps
The Company also caters for those customers who want to invest in rack space exclusively, without the bandwidth. Rack space can be sold at cost price with power, which can be hosted in a shared rack or in a lockable allocated rack space.
In June 2013 the Company completed the move of its entire datacentre infrastructure from its old environment to its current location, Teraco, in Isando.
Teraco offers neutral data centres and co-location facilities throughout the country. The environment provides comprehensive services to govern telecommunications, cloud or hosting requirements.
Network Platforms utilised the strength of connectivity and centralised infrastructure within the Teraco environment to secure a substantial reduction in cost and reliability – and being able to deliver customised solutions at very short notice.
Its value proposition lies in solutions that address requirements related to ADSL connectivity, Diginet; Fibre, Microwave and 3G connectivity, IT management, VPN management, infrastructure monitoring, IP PBX/ VoIP and cloud services.
Management reminds the market that this is a limited offer that runs until 16 March 2014 or while stocks last.
