DiData engineers $2.65m upgrade deal

Dimension Data has followed up recent multimillion dollar wins with the SA Government and Centrelink by signing a three-year, $2.65 million deal to upgrade facilities at engineering firm, Thiess.

DiData national business manager of data centre solutions, Ronnie Altit, said it would provide equipment and services to upgrade the company's Brisbane data centre. The deal came through an existing relationship between the two businesses.

"We originally engaged with Thiess when it was having issues with it backups and storage environment," he said. "Throughout that process, we identified opportunities for consolidating its environment, which Thiess had already recognised."

The Thiess data centre is one of the largest JD Edwards implementations in Australia. It is built on Sun Microsystems hardware including a Sun Fire E6900 server and Sun StorageTek 9985 storage arrays.

Altit said the engineering firm had warmed to DiData's business-centric approach towards the upgrade.

In addition to consulting on a complete Sun hardware solution, DiData also combined a number of maintenance and support contracts from multiple vendors to simplify contract management for the engineering firm, he said.
