Australian cloud service provider Atos has been named NEXTDC’s Partner of the Year, in a win the company says marks another milestone as it reinforces its position as one of the leading cloud service providers in Australia and APAC.
NEXTDC’s 2015 Partner Awards were held in Sydney at the end of 2015, and was attended by 250 partner organisations.
“Atos is greatly pleased to be on this journey with NEXTDC to bring Canopy – the Atos Cloud – to Australia,” says Peter Robertson, managing director at Atos in Australia.
Canopy is the global offering for all of Atos cloud services and is a leading cloud service provider in Europe.
“The Canopy solution is an enterprise grade IaaS with high availability and the platform has high demand on data centre infrastructure,” he says.
“NEXTDC’s facilities are definitely some of the top tier 3 data centres with such capability and we look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
Robertson says the award gives a positive signal to the business communities in Australia and the rest of APAC.
“The trifecta of proven mature enterprise grade architecture supported by a global network of technical experts and end-to-end service offerings guarantee a certain success to businesses that begin their digitalisation journey with Canopy,” he explains.
Currently the cloud platform is located in Perth, Western Australia, and services are rendered through NEXTDC’s UTI Tier III-certified P1 data centre. Through NEXTDC’s nationwide data centre network, Canopy aims to extend its coverage across Australia and to the rest of Asia Pacific.
Craig Scroggie, NEXTDC CEO, congratulates Atos on the award.
“Congratulations on Atos on being awarded New Partner of the Year at the NEXTDC Partner Awards,” he says.
“This achievement is acknowledgement of Atos’ dedication to providing superior services in the cloud and co-location marketplace, as well as of our shared success – well done.”
