Geek T’s back in style

0 Comments, posted in Geek Gear,News

We’ve had so many requests for our Geek T’s lately, that we’ve caved into the pressure and decided to give away some more. Who would have thought that these T’s would become such a fashion statement? Perhaps models will be showing them off on the ramps of Fashion week 2009? Who knows.

We’ll be giving them out as spot prizes to our loyal twitter following, so if you want one, the only prerequisite is to be following us on Twitter.

Our twitter address is http://www.twitter.com/rsaweb

T’s available in #000000 only.

Data Centre Tours

0 Comments, posted in Data Centre Services,News

RSAWEB Data Centre ToursWe often meet people in the ICT industry that have never been inside an actual proper Data Centre environment.

Data Centres are really the backbone of the Internet. Often taken for granted by the general public, they provide the infrastructure that houses the applications and data that we access on a daily basis.

We encourage people at levels of the Internet technology chain learn more about the hardware and environments behind hosting technology, and gain a more holistic understanding of how it all fits together.

RSAWEB Data Centre tours offer you the chance to come and experience first hand the inner-workings of our flagship Cape Town Data Centre. On the tour, our team of technical virtuosos will bring you up to speed on:

  • New technologies such as Virtualisation & SAN Storage.
  • The nuts and bolts behind popular products such as Colocation, Dedicated Servers & Shared hosting.
  • Why Data Centre environments are fast replacing onsite hosting solutions.

Want to join our latest tour? Sign up on www.rsaweb.co.za for our latest scheduled tour on 6 August 2009.

RSAWEB talks to eTV about Seacom cable

1 Comments, posted in News,RSAWEB TV

The tide is turning for Africa’s bandwith deficiency with the upcoming switch-on of Seacom, an undersea telecoms cable, on the 27th of June. The cable, which links London and India to South Africa, is set to reduce bandwith costs and increase data transmissions for African countries. Much will be said about this exciting and historical development in the coming weeks but what do the experts have to say about how this will affect our lives?

RSAWEB MD Rob Gilmour recently appeared on the eTV Sunrise breakfast show to discuss the implications of this landmark event.

Here is video footage as it appeared on the eTV Sunrise breakfast show:

NetProphet an outstanding success

9 Comments, posted in News,Social Responsibility


Feedback from the NetProphet conference has exceeded all our expectations. Originally planned as a 100 delegate conference, then 200, it quickly expanded to 450 registered users, so much so that registration had to be closed! On the day an extra row of chairs had to be put out to accomodate all the delegates.

The speakers were fantastic, they also managed to keep the topics less technical and more informative so it wasnt just another geek event. The appeal was across industries, not just IT. They shared insights into what they do with real world examples of their experiences and advice on how to build your own web-enabled business. The content from the event will be posted with video and slides on the Netprophet website to allow more people access to the excellent content.

Some comments: Arthur Goldstuck said “I have never seen so many people at an Internet Conference before”, Peter Flynn said “All software will ultimately be web-based” and Mike Stopforth“How conferences in SA should be run”

RSAWEB was one of the headline sponsors to make NetProphet possible, along with sister company WhiteWallWeb and the Innovation Fund. There is talk that Cape Town has become the “Silicon Cape” – the Silicon Valley of Africa and NetProphet has helped enable that!

Twitter was also a major success factor in the conference, with a twitter fountain pulling up all the #Netprophet tags. We managed to ‘trend’ into the Top 10 and got to be the 2nd most talked about topic on twitter in the world for over 2 hours.

NetProphet was conceived by the Directors of the RAMP Foundation and is a new initiative created to inspire creativity and the flow of ideas among entrepreneurs and stake-holders who operate in the internet-tech space in Africa & South Africa.

If you missed the event this year, go and register now on the Netprophet website for updates around the next event.
