Datacentrix relocates Zutari data centre in quick turnaround

Friday 20 November 2020 | 11:31 CET | News

South African engineering firm Zutari has successfully relocated its data centre, including storage area network (SAN), storage and server infrastructure, after it moved its Tshwane head office from Lynnwood Manor to Newlands in Pretoria. The project had a tight turnaround time and was completed by Datacentrix.

Covid-19 complications forced Zutari to put on hold the relocation, originally planned for earlier in the year. The company was able to resume its plans in July, but the project now had to be completed within a very short timeframe to expeditiously vacate the previous office space.  There was no formal tender process for this project, explained Stephan Botha, IT operations at Zutari, but the company raised the discussion with several vendors and ultimately opted to partner with Datacentrix.

Datacentrix ensured all back-ups and archiving were completed prior to the move. The organisation completed a network re-design for greater redundancy, including the devising and deployment of an enhanced Wi-Fi set-up, as well as cabling.
