Plans to expand cloud service offerings after attaining vCloud status

Infrastructure provider, Thomas Duryea Consulting, will pump more investment into its cloud service offerings after experiencing huge growth and attaining vCloud status.

Thomas Duryea CEO, Andrew Thomas, touted it was a big year ahead for the company after smashing its September quarter results.

“We had huge growth across every area of the business,” he said. “This quarter, our year-on-year numbers are so far ahead of our September quarter last year and that allows us to invest more heavily and aggressively into areas like cloud.”

The primary service it offers at the moment is around managed disaster recovery.

“We’ve got a number of storage providers in that infrastructure that we’re able to do some unique synchronisation and replication for customers,” he said. “We’re doing managed disaster recovery from a number of different angles that’s very specific for client needs - it’s not just a one-size fits all.”

Thomas said it experienced growth across areas of the business and this surprisingly included hardware products.

“We’ve seen record months in this quarter in product, but our biggest growth area has been managed services, which includes the cloud offerings and wholesale outsource. Professional services grew 47 per cent year-on-year in September quarter,” he said. “For us we see great opportunity for new discussion around cloud, but on the flip side of that we’re also doing enormous amounts of Windows 7 rollouts.”

Thomas said gaining vCloud status was a key part of the company’s growth strategy.

It currently maintains more than 500 clients and noted since its cloud launch, it has experienced a fast uptake of its services.

In October last year, the company launched Cloudium, which is a private cloud offering.

Services currently available on the Thomas Duryea Cloud include the Hybrid Cloud via vCloud connector, facilitating burst capability for production, development and testing, and disaster recovery workloads.

“At the moment, we’re able to demonstrate a complete 50 server deployment onto the cloud in under 5 minutes,” Thomas said.

As a validated provider, Thomas Duryea can now offer users enhanced responsiveness and agility, and reduced IT costs through increased consolidation, task automation and simplified management.

VMware partner director, John Donovan, said the vCloud powered program was developed to enable service providers to differentiate themselves and help them bring their enterprise-class cloud services to market.

ZettaGrid became the first partner to gain vCloud status in Australia in August, followed by Anittel.
