Australia's Bureau of Meteorology Forecasts Cloud: Selects Unisys for Flexible Cloud Infrastructure

Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology has awarded Unisys Corporation a contract to design, build and manage new secure cloud infrastructure and an upgraded Wide Area Network (WAN) to better support current services and indirectly provide a modern operating environment. The Bureau is a new client for Unisys 

 

The three-year contract is valued at approximately AUD 16.48 million, with options for multiple extensions with a total maximum term of not more than nine years, and was awarded in the second quarter of 2019.

 

The Bureau of Meteorology is Australia’s national weather, climate and water agency. Its expertise and services assist Australians in dealing with the harsh realities of their natural environment, including drought, floods, fires and tropical cyclones. Through regular forecasts, warnings, monitoring and advice spanning the Australian region and Antarctic territory, the Bureau provides one of the most fundamental and widely-used services of government.

 

Vice President and General Manager of Unisys Asia Pacific Rick Mayhew said, “The Bureau’s services are used to assist in making life-impacting decisions – from whether to embark on a family fishing trip, to calculating how much fuel an aircraft requires for a flight. The new hybrid cloud infrastructure, designed and supported by Unisys, will provide a secure and resilient environment to better support current services, as well as a modern operating environment with the scalability to quickly and effectively implement future requirements.”

 

“Unisys has a wealth of experience helping government organisations transform their environments to provide better, more efficient and secure services using digital technologies, including the public cloud. In addition, we bring specific weather expertise from more than 30 years providing reliable and timely weather data and products in the U.S., including to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. We look forward to helping the Bureau of Meteorology provide its critical weather services to Australians to keep them informed and arm them with the best information to make safe and informed decisions,” said Mayhew.
