Perth’s Cirrus Networks has secured three contracts in the resources sector, worth more than $1 million all up.
The IT solutions provider has been selected to provide new data centre infrastructure for Independence Group, while an unnamed mining ‘giant’ has chosen Cirrus to provide data storage for their mine sites in Western Australia, and a ‘leading mining services business’ has selected the company to provide and implement a virtual desktop environment.
Frank Richmond, Cirrus managing director, says the company is delighted to have been recognised for our innovative enabling technology solutions through the three contract wins with blue chip companies.
“As all businesses, particularly those within the resources sector, look to enabling technology to drive lower operational costs, Cirrus is excited at the opportunity to showcase our success in this area,” Richmond says.
The Independence Group (IGO) deal will see Cirrus providing new data centre infrastructure to enable IGO to expand on its current investment, while also helping with the integration of Sirius Resources.
The deal to provide data storage for a global mining giant will see Cirrus implementing all-flash enterprise technology to improve the performance of key mission critical applications and providing disaster recovery backup to their Perth data centre.
The third deal, to implement a virtual desktop environment, follows a successful pilot of the technology.
