May 25, 2018; Brisbane, Australia: Leading Australian technology services and solutions provider, Data#3, today announced its capability to deliver services and solutions via Microsoft Azure’s Australia Central cloud.
Data#3 customers can now leverage Microsoft Azure Australia Central to provide premium data centre services that meet the highest standards across security, compliance and privacy, helping to support their digital transformation journey.
Laurence Baynham, Data#3 Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, said, “This is a fantastic addition to the cloud services we already provide to our customers. A key part of our strategy is to enable digital transformation through innovative cloud services and solutions. Microsoft’s leadership and growth in public cloud has been impressive and allows us to offer a comprehensive range of cloud services to Australian customers.”
Data#3 National Practice Manager for Microsoft, Scott Gosling, commented, “This is great news for those customers in government or with critical national infrastructure, such as banks, utilities, transport and telecommunications. They can now proceed with innovative digital strategies, while ensuring that they meet their stringent regulatory and compliance requirements.”
A unique difference of Microsoft Azure Australia Central is the capability to locate existing systems, private clouds, specialised networking or safety-critical systems within the same facilities as Azure, and indeed directly connected to Azure.
The hybrid flexibility, performance and security this delivers enables the modernisation of even the most complex applications. Along with direct connectivity within these facilities and the private Australian Government ICON network, Microsoft Azure now offers a unique capability for high-performance, very low latency networking.
Data#3 and Microsoft have worked together for over 20 years, and during this time, Data#3 has become Microsoft’s largest reseller in Australia.
