Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud selected by Data#3 for its Cloud services in Australia

16 Apr 2012 Sydney - Data#3 Ltd, one of Australia's information and communications technology companies, selected the Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud software solution for its Cloud services and data centre business. This decision supports the Data#3's commitment to delivering industry-leading data centre solutions and meeting the growing demand for hosted managed services and cloud services in Australia.

"Data#3 is pleased to provide its customers with a range of best-in-class solutions that meet all their Cloud business requirements whether fully managed, on-premises, private Cloud or hybrid Cloud", stated Patrick Murphy, general manager for managed services at Data#3. "We selected Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud because it allows us to take advantage of our existing technology investments and use it across all of our managed services business as well as our Cloud services so we can deliver faster IT provisioning cycle times to increase customer satisfaction and improve business agility."

Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud is a self-service provisioning and orchestration software solution for data centre automation and IT as a service. Orchestration and management can be particularly complex in heterogeneous environments such as that of Data#3, which uses a multi-vendor model to support its customers' needs. Data#3 selected Cisco's Cloud management software in large part for its ability to orchestrate work flows across this heterogeneous environment and to complement and preserve investments in other infrastructure vendors and system management technologies.

"As each customer's approach to Cloud will be unique, it is critical that our partners can help chart a customer's journey to the Cloud that is flexible enough to be deployed on-premises or hosted in a data centre while being simple to deploy and operate", stated Sara Adams, managing director of the Partner Business Group for Cisco Australia and New Zealand. "We're pleased that Data#3 has selected the Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud management solution to design, supply, implement and support next-generation data centres and Cloud services for its customers."

With Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud, Data#3 is also enhancing its existing data centre capabilities for customers in a multi-vendor server, network, and storage architecture that includes Cisco and NetApp FlexPod as well as Vblock best-in-class integrated platforms.
