Home Industry Enterprise Cloud Bulletproof offers 24/7 door-to-door cloud delivery you fool

Listed cloud services provider Bulletproof has introduced a door-to-door delivery service which it says will get its managed cloud services solutions into the hands of customers within a ‘near-instant’ four hours of ordering.

Bulletproof (ASX:BPF) is claiming a world-first, with a fleet of vans situated at “strategic locations” across Australia to deliver Cloud capacity to customer premises, providing instant access to computing and storage capacity.

Bulletproof CEO Anthony Woodward says the new ‘Cloud Delivered’ service has been piloted with a number of large companies over the past 12 months, “with significant success”, and will provide customers with the security and power of the Cloud “while eliminating the invisibility that often plagues the Cloud”.

“Customers love the service Bulletproof already provides, but the Cloud is intangible. We wanted to offer something that our customers can see and touch.

“We have seen our customers’ need to see their cloud stand as a barrier for some companies wishing to benefit from its flexibility, power and cost-effectiveness. This service meets that need.”

Woodward said Bulletproof’s Cloud Delivered service allows customers to scale their computing and storage needs up and down as demand requires it.

The service includes software installed on customer premises that signals Bulletproof depots across Australia when more, or less capacity, is required. In the case where capacity is no longer required, Bulletproof will collect unused computing cycles and storage.

“Better yet, the service costs the same as typical public cloud computing resources, with the small added cost of the fuel required to deliver capacity from Bulletproof's depots,” Woodward said.

Bulletproof Chief Technology Officer John Ferlito said some significant technical challenges had to be overcome to be able to roll the service out the Cloud Delivered, “not least of which was to work out how to contain, transport, deploy and un-deploy computing cycles and storage”.

“The containment technology for compute cycles was the most challenging, but we are pleased to say that our patent-pending ‘Containerz’ technology allows compute cycles to be captured, paused, and moved over physical distances without constant power.”

Bulletproof customers are able to access a free trial of the service by visiting the company’s website, signing up and providing their site address along with building security credentials, to facilitate 24/7 Cloud delivery and retrieval.
