AC3 will utilise Dimension Data’s Managed Cloud Platform (MCP), a global delivery platform for all its Cloud services, and CloudControl, a Cloud management system that automates provisioning, orchestration, administration and billing, to support its clients in both public and private sectors.
The pre-configured MCP offers a commercial structure and is a key part of AC3’s infrastructure as a service (IaaS) offering, along with storage, data management and perimeter security services.
AC3 CEO, Philip McCrea, said that Dimension Data was selected for its “inherent security features as well as the automation of cloud resource provisioning.”
“This initiative enables us to offer our clients a valuable additional level of service by providing them with infrastructure to run their business applications instead of them having to procure their own equipment,” he added.
Dimension Data Australian CEO, Rodd Cunico, said, “AC3 can be assured that its clients are able to accelerate their adoption of Cloud computing, be more agile, achieve lower IT infrastructure management expenses, and reduce Cloud migration complexity and risk.”
