Data#3 to use Azure Australia Central
Data#3 customers will now be able to use Azure Australia Central to provide data centre services that meet government standards for security, compliance and privacy.
The Azure Australia Central cloud regions in Canberra are used to provide mission-critical cloud services using security and compliance standards certified by the Australian Signals Directorate for data up to the protected classification level.
Azure Australia Central allows customers to locate existing systems, private clouds, specialised networking and safety-critical systems in the same facilities as — and directly connected to — Azure.
The expanded agreement with Microsoft will allow Data#3 to meet the requirements of governments or providers of critical national infrastructure, such as banks, utilities and telecoms customers.
Data#3 CEO Laurence Baynham said the agreement with Microsoft will support the company’s strategic vision.
“A key part of our strategy is to enable digital transformation through innovative cloud services and solutions. Microsoft’s leadership and growth in public cloud has been impressive and allows us to offer a comprehensive range of cloud services to Australian customers,” he said.
He said Data#3 has been a Microsoft partner for more than 20 years, and in this time the company has become Microsoft’s largest reseller in Australia.
