GPK Group has announced it is leading the charge by being the first Australian MSP to provide Microsoft Azure Stack private cloud services. In partnership with DELL and Microsoft, GPK Group is able to offer customised and scalable private and public cloud solutions, systems integration and application design and delivery.
This is welcome news for Australian companies who have relied on Azure or other public cloud services in the past. The nature of Azure public cloud means that for some companies moving core services, applications and data to the cloud, has been an obstacle due to security and privacy concerns. For those companies that want the flexibility of secure IaaS, PaaS and SaaS services that are completely private, GPK Group’s announcement will allow them to finally adopt these technologies in a Hybrid or Private cloud format, while still leveraging the significant power of Azure.
GPK Group, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Grant Klaaysen stated, “as part of our ongoing strategy to address digital change that requires organisational structure and process transformation throughout all business domains, we identified our customers need the flexibility of choice between public, private and hybrid cloud deployments. More importantly they want suppliers that not only understand the technical detail but also the business impact and benefits that cloud technology brings. The benefits this brings to Australian companies are enormous including secure, private onshore data, meeting Australian privacy regulations and data sovereignty requirements, simpler management of infrastructure, movement of applications and data between Azure Stack and Azure Public clouds, more productivity for developers and administrators… the list goes on and on! We’re proud to be Australia’s first MSP Azure Stack private cloud service provider. A leading Australian retailer is slated to be first cab off the rank implementing core infrastructure and processes to Azure Private Cloud. This is a fantastic opportunity to set the benchmark and continue their and our growth objectives.”
