Pacnet Gains Approval From AGIMO As Provider For Datacentre-as-a-Service

SYDNEY, 29 October 2012 – Pacnet, Asia-Pacific’s leading provider of integrated network and technology solutions has been named by the Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO) as an approved supplier on the Datacentre-as-a-Service (DCaaS) Multi-Use List (MUL).

The DCaaS MUL allows government agencies like the Department of Finance and Treasury to procure cloud and cloud-like services more easily.

“We’re proud to have been recognized on the DCaaS panel. As an existing supplier of various government agencies at federal, state and local levels, this appointment will allow us to provide a wider range of solutions to government agencies,” said Nigel Stitt, CEO of Pacnet Australia. “This appointment reinforces the strategic plan announced by Pacnet last week and we look forward to helping government agencies benefit from moving into the cloud.”

As part of the company’s new strategic plan, Pacnet will look to deliver “IT as a service” by introducing a wide range of new value added services such as data management, virtual hosting, and security products.

Government agencies can now easily access Pacnet CloudSpace, one of the two distinctive product sets within Pacnet’s data centre services portfolio which helps content-driven organizations to deliver rich-media content and compute-intensive applications by bringing data closer to their end-users. These facilities are also suitable for enterprises that require high-bandwidth connectivity locally or around the world.

Services provided under the DCaaS program will be delivered from Pacnet’s Sydney CloudSpace (SYCS1) facility, located at Liverpool Street. SYCS1 opened in February 2011 and is undergoing an expansion which will add 700 racks and three megawatts of power when completed.
