Australian cloud service provider Zettagrid hits Indonesia

12 Sep 17

Australian infrastructure-as-a-service provider Zettagrid has begun its assault on the wider APAC region, opening a new zone in Jakarta.

The new Indonesian offering will provide a range of coputing services, including virtual server, virtual data centre, backup and disaster recovery, built and managed in an enteprise grade VMware certified environment.

Nathan Harman, Zetta Group chief executive, says the expansion is part of Zettagrid’s global strategy and marks the first step in the channel-focused company’s strategy to deliver cloud services to the whole APAC region.

“Zettagrid has built a powerful reputation in the Australian market since our inception in 2010, and with the increasing adoption of cloud computing amongst enterprises globally, expansion into South East Asia is the next important milestone for our organisation,” Harman says.

In Australia the company manages more than 4,000 virtual machines with more than 100 channel partners nationally.

Reza Kertadjaja, Zettagrid Indonesia country manager, says there is a need in the Indonesian market for a locally hosted cloud IaaS service with easy management and integrated billing.

“Zettagrid has a long and successful track record of working with partners to design, build and manage complex cloud platforms that meet the many needs of IT organisations,” Kertadjaja says.

Zettagrid says it will offer its channel partner program to Indonesian businesses, rewarding partners who build innvoative customer solutions using technology based on Zettagrid’s infrastructure.

“This engagement includes the expansion of Zettagrid Australia’s channel partner program to local Indonesian solution providers and system integrators,” Zettagrid says.

Last month Zettagrid was awarded 2017 Cloud Partner of the Year for Asia Pacific by Zerto.
