​NZ Govt sure of Revera’s Azure-enabled Public Cloud platform

The New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs approves Revera’s public cloud platforms for its All-of-Government services catalogue.

The New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs has approved Revera’s public cloud platforms for its All-of-Government services catalogue, following the passing of stringent risk-based frameworks.

As a result, the approval means that Revera Apollo - an Azure-enabled public cloud platform developed in partnership with Microsoft - and Revera Vault - an object-based cloud storage service - are both available to government agencies across the country.

The move follows a paper written by DIA, called Requirements for Cloud Computing, which establishes a risk-based framework for public cloud adoption in the government sector.

Revera Head of Innovation, Keith Archibald, says government agencies required similar options to private sector counterparts, with Revera’s public cloud offering “paying the way” for government agencies to manage off-shore and onshore workloads from a New Zealand launch pad.

“DIA’s risk assessment framework is extremely comprehensive and shows how the organisation is working as a trusted advisor, rather than prescribing exactly which clouds and geographies are available in a rapidly evolving world,” Archibald says.

Archibald says the document provided agencies with new latitude, specifically highlighting data sovereignty, which is now based on risk assessment rather than geographic boundaries.

“Storing data off-shore is a viable option, which should be assessed and adopted on the basis of workload characteristics,” he adds.

Launched last year, Revera Apollo and Revera Vault are Revera’s first public cloud offerings, which the company has made available through a self-provisioning and management platform called CloudCreator.

All-of-Government contracts are designed harness the collective purchasing power of government by establishing single supply agreements for selected common goods and services, accounting for around two percent of government spend with third party suppliers.
