Driven by the ongoing global pandemic as well as long-standing loadshedding concerns, increasing numbers of South African organisations have had to enable remote working. While moving to the cloud is often presented as the solution, it is not possible in some cases due to a variety of factors. In these instances, colocation doesn’t just provide a secure and reliable environment to maintain servers, but also a more seamless path to the cloud when the time comes to shift.

Many organisations might have made investments in modernising their IT infrastructure (which is now capable to meet their requirements and still within manufacturer warranty), and will first need to sweat these assets while others might have adopted more stringent security policies that prevent the storage of certain types of data on shared infrastructure or in public clouds – all of which means that they are still maintaining their equipment on premise.
