Vocus_Cloud_Connect_Auckland

Vocus Communications says Vocus Cloud Connect gives New Zealand businesses a secure, dedicated connection to Amazon Web Services in Sydney. The business-class service launched Thursday. It is pitched as an alternative to the public internet where Vocus says: "performance can often be slow, erratic and unpredictable."

That, says Vocus CEO James Spenceley affects productivity, performance and staff morale. "Potentially offsetting any financial advantage expected when moving applications to the cloud", he says.

The private fibre network scales with speeds ranging from 50 Mbps to 10 Gbps. Customers can choose either a dedicated physical port or a virtual port. There's also a burstable service. This allows customers to burst above their committed speed as needed.

  • Wellington IT consultancy OptimalBI is one of a handful of IT consultancies to make it onto the Regional Deloitte Fast 50 index. Other technology companies to make the index include Auckland's Snakk Media, Eroad and Unleashed Software. Cloud services provider LayerX is from the Central North Island, while GreenButton and Rocket Jump also represent Wellington. Canterbury has three tech companies on the index: Intranel, Trineo and Mars Bioimaging while Timely and Bookme represent the lower South Island.
  • Get ready for a media storm. Social media service Twitter is going for an IPO, some say it could be worth north of US$10 billion. The IPO is expected to happen early next year and will be closely followed €“ possibly as much as when Facebook went public.
