Dimension Data plans to offer New Zealand businesses both global and local public cloud solutions
Posted on 21-May-2014 09:45. | Tags Filed under: News.



Dimension Data says it will be the first public cloud service provider in New Zealand to offer its clients both global and local cloud solutions, today announcing the addition of an Auckland-based Managed Cloud Platform (MCP), set to launch in the 4th quarter this year.

The new facility brings Dimension Data’s total number of global MCP locations to 13 and is expected to address the demand for enterprise-class cloud services in New Zealand.

New Zealand is amongst three new global cloud data centres that will go live to address the ongoing demand for enterprise-class cloud services in Toronto, Canada; Auckland, New Zealand; and next month in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The addition of the new Managed Cloud Platform (MCP) locations will bring to 13 the number of Dimension Data's Public MCPs globally with multiple data centres in each of the Americas, EMEA, Asia Pacific and
Australia regions.

James Walls, CTO of Dimension Data New Zealand, says the development is in response to demand, with many clients wanting a provider with both global and local capabilities.

“Kiwi organisations are jumping head first into cloud and have created a demand for a data center onshore to support their operations as well as business continuity, backup and replication. Our aim is to help our clients accelerate their ambition, and we believe our local presence and global reach can allow them to do just that.

“This service brings world-class compute facilities to New Zealand agencies and enterprises.It accommodates specific application workloads as well as entire production environments and provides them with the ability to dial services up and down in response to demand,” says Walls.

“The new service gives clients access to a world-class local platform, as well as to our multiple global MCPs. This means export-oriented organisations have the opportunity to expand their business worldwide with low-latency access to secure, reliable, scalable cloud services.”

Kathmandu is already utilising Dimension Data’s global MCPs in its efforts to expand its presence beyond New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom, while Westland Milk, New Zealand’s third largest exporter of dairy products, utilises the MCPs to support its disaster recovery and business continuity expectations.
