 Government Online Centre

The Government Online Centre (GOC) is the centralised data centre to provide Government services to citizen, business persons, government officers and non-citizens abroad. Operational since May 2005, the GOC is managed by the National Computer Board (NCB) and located on the 5th floor of the Ebene CyberTower.

The Government Online Centre has recently been revamped and extended to meet international data centre standards and will be looking for all appropriate certification to be a reference in Government Data Centres.

Equipped with biometric access, CCTV cameras at all critical entries, fire detection and prevention systems, precision cooling unit, redundant power and equipment, nowadays, the GOC is capable of accommodating over 30 racks of equipment and goes further in reaching out to e-government plans that are to be implemented in Ministries and Departments that do not seek to invest in Server Rooms / Data Centres outside of GINS.

The GOC takes a proactive, comprehensive approach by providing its customers with the industry’s most potent security tools and techniques, designed, built and maintained specifically for enterprise-class application hosting. From secure server builds and intrusion protection systems to a physically secure data centre and monitored network, the GOC takes a multi-layered approach to keeping all application hosting operations reliable and secure.

 
The GOC has been designed to be equipped with state-of-the-art IT infrastructure to enable IT optimisation in the public sector while at the same time providing comprehensive information on government services and enabling online applications on a 24x7 basis in a user-friendly and fully secured manner through the Government Web Portal.
