iQ3 has been awarded a service provider contract for a global distribution giant, in partnership with Vocus Communications.
The Sydney-based specialists were selected to deliver a managed network solution in a bid to improve platform speed, capacity and availability for the unnamed distributor’s expanding cloud business.
Specifically, iQ3 designed and implemented an architecture capable of allowing the business to focus on customer acquisition, while also overseeing the monitoring and management of the infrastructure.
While the customer cannot be named, the organisation operates as a global distributor, headquartered in the US with revenue in excess of US$36 billion and more than 14,000 staff.
“it’s always very satisfying to be engaged in a project that is fundamental to the strategic growth and ongoing success of our client,” said Craig Humphreys, CEO of iQ3. “When both teams are committed and aligned on the same outcomes, great results happen.”
According to Humphreys, the project was delivered ahead of schedule due to instability concerns regarding the distributor’s legacy network.
“Seeing where a global enterprise like this is going, further validates the market continues to trend more and more towards cloud based workloads and solutions,” Humphreys added.
With infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) expertise across private, public and hybrid cloud solutions, iQ3 works across a range of markets in Australia, including government, education and commercial sectors.
The provider also delivers IaaS from four data centre locations in the Sydney region, backed up by presence in GovDC, specifically servicing NSW state government agencies.
From a vendor standpoint, the provider offers high-speed interconnects to public cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
“It is further confirmation that iQ3 as an organisation is on the right path by focussing efforts on our cloud services (public, private and hybrid), network services, security and management,” Humphreys added.
