Global IT services company Vertiv has signed a new partnership with SRA Solutions with the aim of increasing its footprint with Australian government and telecommunications providers as they invest in Internet of Things and smart city applications and infrastructure.

Under the agreement, Vertiv and SRA will deliver Vertiv’s micro data centre solutions to Federal Government customers, including the SmartCabinet – a fully intelligent solution designed for complex environments at the edge.

According to Vertiv, the SmartCabinet solution is ideal to address increasing demand from IoT and smart city applications, which require data to be processed in real time at the edge where it is generated.

Based in Canberra, SRA is an Australian ICT infrastructure provider specialising in rack and data centre solutions, and a government-approved supplier, as well as a partner to telcos, including Telstra and colocation providers NEXTDC and Digital Realty.

Vertiv says that, according to a March report from analyst firm IDC, Australia is the second-highest spender per capita on IoT in the Asia Pacific region.

“As government organisations, telcos and others invest in Australia’s IoT and smart city ecosystem, the need for reliable, energy-efficient edge infrastructure is greater than ever,” said Robert Linsdell, managing director A/NZ, Vertiv.

“We believe this kind of infrastructure is important to future-proofing Australia’s position and reputation as a global technology leader.”

“Partnering with SRA increases our credibility and reach within vital industries and is a compelling offer for organisations looking to capitalise on these technologies,” said Daniel Sim, senior channel director Asia, Vertiv.

Vertiv says that while SRA already has a national presence, the partnership will help it increase its footprint outside of Canberra and into industries such as education and healthcare.

“Customers need standard rack solutions that can be centrally monitored and managed, particularly when their focus needs to be away from the infrastructure and on getting applications and services right,” said Gordon Campbell, managing director, SRA.

“Vertiv not only helps us meet the demand for smart converged infrastructure within our customer base, but opens the door to other industries in Australia.

“Vertiv’s technology and engineering will benefit from SRA Solutions' local customisation and support. We are a leading government provider of Security Construction and Equipment Committee (SCEC)-approved racks; combining this with Vertiv's MicroDC technology should be a good fit.”
