Macquarie Cloud launches hybrid cloud offer

Macquarie Cloud Services has launched an Australian-first hybrid cloud offering powered by Dell and Microsoft Azure: Macquarie Flex.

The new solution combines the capabilities of Microsoft Azure Stack HCI (Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure) and the Dell Technologies APEX Cloud Platform for Microsoft Azure.

Macquarie Flex is designed to provide customers workload flexibility between public and private clouds. Customers will be able to treat private cloud workloads as first-class citizens of Azure, while managing their workloads through a single pane of glass. The solution is backed by 24x7 mission-critical support and evergreen compliance across public, private and hybrid cloud environments.

Macquarie Cloud Services Head of Private Cloud Jonathan Staff said the solution will help customers simplify hybrid cloud management, manage cloud spend and meet compliance and sovereign requirements. Customers can now run sensitive workloads in a private cloud while still leveraging the scale benefits of Azure.

“Macquarie Flex allows us to meet our customers wherever they are on their cloud journey,” he said. “Through our strong relationship with Dell Technologies and Microsoft, we can now arm Australian businesses with another lever to extract more value from their IT investment.”

The announcement follows Macquarie Cloud Services’ recent launch of turnkey SaaS solution Macquarie Guard, which seeks to automate practical guardrails into Azure services.
