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.

  • Power

    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.

    We also have UPS backup and a standby generator on each feed, providing further resilience.

  • Connectivity

    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.

    Connectivity is provided through diverse, redundant fibre routes connecting the facility to a 10Gbps fibre ring.

    We’ve also partnered with INX-ZA to extend the reach of the Johannesburg Internet Exchange (JINX).

  • Security

    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.

    Biometric access is installed on all access points with our Colocation customers enjoying 24/7 unattended access to the facility.
