He said, “We are happy to unveil these nine local fibre carriers who all represent efficiency and high quality in connectivity. As a carrier neutral data centre, our customers will have multiple local fibre carriers to select from; this provides geographical and physical redundancy and diversity to support their critical business operations.”
In light of the current socio-economic challenges, Raxio Data Centre is encouraging customers to view an outsourced carrier neutral data center as a better way of supporting their business operations as it enables multiple points of connectivity redundancy, resilience in service, optimal uptime, and diversity in options to select from.
