On the back of customer demand, ASX-listed, Data#3 (ASX:DTL), is investing in its own Australian-based infrastructure to supply trusted Cloud services to the market.
This will be an extension to Data#3’s infrastructure design, deploy and operate offerings and includes a pay-per-use off-premises alternative as part of its overall Technology Consumption Model.
This model offers customers seven varieties in which they choose to consume technology. To help customers make the right choice, Data#3 has plumped up its strategic consulting practice to include specialised expertise in guiding customers towards the right combination suitable for them.
Data#3 Group general manager, Laurence Baynham, said customers were demanding local and secure Cloud-based solutions to meet data sovereignty requirements.
“Working closely with our customers, it became clear that the real world in which they operate requires a hybrid of service types across what we’ve defined as the Technology Consumption Model. Trusted Cloud is one of the more recent ways in which our customers are choosing to consume technology,” Baynham said.
“Data#3 made the choice to locate its infrastructure and services within Australia and we intend to continue this, with additional investment planned in the coming year.”
Data#3’s Technology Consumption Model is made up of a procurement of a software or hardware product; procurement of expertise; a solution integration product and services; contracting for an outcome over time via outsourcing; or contracting on a pay-per-use basis for private, trusted and public Cloud services.
In August Data#3 managing director, John Grant, said the company was expanding its Cloud offerings and building out new consulting offerings for customers.
