Telecommunications service providers have until late February to apply for grants to assist them in meeting their data retention obligations under new laws which came into effect in October last year.

Earlier this month, the Federal Government announced the opening of a grants programme of up to $128.4 million to assist the telecommunications industry with the upfront costs of meeting their data retention obligations.  

The Data Retention Industry Grants Programme consists of a single funding round open to all telecommunication service providers who have data retention obligations, and is designed to make a financial contribution to service providers typical up front data retention costs, and includes support for smaller providers.

Applications opened on Thursday, 7 January and the closing date for applications is 5.00pm (AEDT) on Tuesday, 23 February 2016.

The Attorney-General’s Department said today that assisting industry with the implementation of the data retention obligations remains a key
priority for the Government.

Telecommunications companies with data retention obligations are required to retain limited communications data for two years.

ENABLE HYBRID CLOUD & REDUCE NETWORK LATENCY WHITEPAPER

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.


Download this white paper to find out what you need to know about enabling the hybrid cloud in your organisation.
