Kiwi service providers part of Microsoft's Cloud OS network

Revera and Dimension Data are two Kiwi service providers who have signed up to become part of Microsoft’s Cloud OS network.

The Cloud OS network is a worldwide consortium of service providers that have been brought together by Microsoft to offer customers a hybrid cloud infrastructure based on Windows Server 2012 R2 with Hyper-V, System Center 2012 R2, and Windows Azure Pack.

Microsoft Cloud OS Network also rallies functions for developers and IT managers, including tools to quickly deploy scalable apps, unified systems and identity management across clouds, applications, and devices, and IT stack virtualisation.

The Cloud OS network was launched by Microsoft earlier this month with around 25 service providers and systems integrators already linked up.

Set for go-live in the first quarter of 2014, Revera’s Microsoft Cloud Platform offering will be geared to public sector organisations and available via the Government ICT common capability infrastructure-as-as-service (IaaS) program.

“The alliance with Revera combines Microsoft technologies with local cloud expertise to provide customers with a flexible platform solution,” said Paul Muckleston, Microsoft’s NZ MD.

“The Cloud OS vision provides consistent infrastructure across customer data centres, Windows Azure, and service provider clouds, and provides customers with more choice and flexibility,” he said.

Revera CEO Robin Cockayne said, “Clients want this technology from the cloud, but they’re sensitive about data sovereignty. Revera is a safe, home soil alternative.”

The launch of the Cloud OS network has been pegged as Microsoft’s latest development in its ongoing efforts to compete against prominent cloud providers, like Amazon and Google, to attract and keep enterprise users across the world.
