We are exceedingly proud to announce the acquisition of a shiny new Data Centre, purchased from a leading financial services provider. The new facility finds it’s home in close proximity to our Cape Town head office in located in Gardens.

The acquisition comes as a result of a increased demand for Cloud services. It’s clear to us that South African businesses are waking up to the advantages of Cloud hosting as opposed to traditional hosting models like in-sourced Data Centres and dedicated servers. We also believe that the prolific emergence of innovative technology companies and supporting community-driven bodies such as Silicon Cape are also factors spurring the growth of Cloud services in the mother city.

Durbanville High School played host to the 3rd leg of the Pro Classic Series on Saturday, where Team RSAWEB set out to defend their Leader’s Jersey. Having to rely on a “skeleton team”, Team RSAWEB felt a little vulnerable in this race, however earned themselves a 2nd place, courtesy of Robert Quinn.

The 48.5km circular route saw cyclists exit Durbanville via Wellington Road, travel along the R312 past the Fisantekraal aerodrome and across the “fruit sellers” four-way intersection. They turned left down the second Voorpaardeberg Road, then down Paardeberg Road and right onto the R302. The cyclists made a right turn at the silos and right again onto Philadelphia Road, before hitting Adderley Road for the final stretch back to Durbanville. (more…)

Following recent aggressive peering moves by local ISPs (namely Mweb), peering has once again come to the fore as an issue the ISP industry needs to grapple with.

Firstly, here are the facts concerning RSAWEB customers:

1. We peer openly

We peer openly (settlement free) with all other ISPs, including Mweb. This means that Mweb customers accessing RSAWEB hosted content will not be affected at all by recent events. All traffic between Mweb and RSAWEB is routed locally, and openly.

2. We have our own network and Data Centres

This means we are not reliant on any one single ISP network to route traffic. We are free to route local traffic in a way that ensures the best customer experience.

The end result is a higher quality of service for customers driving traffic between us and Mweb.

There comes a time in every Grade 11 learners’ life when they have to decide what they’re going to be when they grow up, and job shadowing is the school system’s way of guiding the learners onto the right career path. We participated in this activity recently, when 4 young ladies from the LEAP Science and Maths School spent a day with us to understand what a career in IT industry could hold for them.

Philisiwe Mzwana, Tina Lubambo, Nomfundiso Malgas and Nosiphiwo Rose Breakfast spent time with some of our team members who introduced them to our company, the various roles and responsibilities and how our employees came to be in their respective positions. (more…)
