CloudCentral Secures First Contract for Australian Government (AGIMO) Data Center as a Service (DCaa

Canberra Australia, 15 November 2012 – CloudCentral, a leading provider of Australasian cloud services today announced it has secured its first contract since being included in the recently released Australian Government Information Management Office  Data Center as a Service Multi Use List (AGIMO DCaaS MUL) and Service Catalogue.

CloudCentral will be providing managed Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) to an Australian Government agency to support service delivery of a new content management and delivery system. Under the terms of the agreement, CloudCentral will provide managed services including enterprise server management, monitoring, security and data backup .  Services will be provided from CloudCentral’s Canberra, Australia based data centres including NextDC C1 (ASX: NXT) and TransACT (ASX: IIN).

The CloudCentral system provides customers with scalable on-demand access to computing, storage and network resources that can be scaled up and down in accordance with demand.  Customers can deploy and manage their resources via a web user interface and integrate their systems via a Application Programming Interface (HTTP REST API).

“Being awarded a Government contract in less than a month of CloudCentral joining the AGIMO DCaaS MUL is great news and validates our ability to deliver innovative and robust Pay-as-you-Grow (PAYG) cloud services to Australian Enterprise and Government customers. ” said Kristoffer Sheather, CEO, CloudCentral.

“Our well established service delivery approach contrasts with that of foreign cloud providers as services will be delivered from two Australian located data centers, providing our customer with a high level of assurance around data sovereignty and security. Similarly, CloudCentral delivers all customer service and support via locally based support engineers providing customers with a local “throat to choke,” continued Sheather.

Established in October 2012, the DCaaS MUL provides a service catalogue of pre-approved cloud service offerings to enable Australian Government departments and agencies to efficiently procure cloud services with a contract value of up to $80,000 for terms of 12 months or less. 

CloudCentral’s listing comprises 17 different services including Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS).
