UltraServe hits a high note with Aussie, global sales

Australian managed cloud services provider UltraServe claims its international and domestic sales are booming after last year’s launch of SmartStack, its hybris-based Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).

The company says it has doubled its contracted base of customers during the past year, recruiting an extra 15 people at its "ultra urban" head office in Pyrmont and its NSW Central Coast development centre, along with continued expansion into Auckland, London, Chicago and Asia.

UltraServe’s claimed success comes in the wake of an Australian enterprise applications market study by technology analyst Telsyte, published this week, which found that 56% of Australian organisations are already using or investigating PaaS to deploy custom software.

UltraServe VP of Sales Adam Chicktong says the company has now successfully entered the enterprise market, winning business from ASX-listed and multinational corporations, and building on its previous success in the medium-sized business sector.

According to Chicktong, the company is expanding at an unprecedented rate. “Our growth is on the back of the international success of our globally unique hybris PaaS, SmartStack.”  

“SmartStack gives our clients a suite of tools and services to ensure successful deployment and long-term management of hybris in the Cloud. Session persistence, blue/green deployments, truly immutable infrastructure aren’t just buzz words, they are a reality for our clients. In the past year, we’ve delivered SmartStack to enterprise customers in Australia and New Zealand as well as multinationals in the US, Europe, Brazil and India.”
