Deal sees Revera as the first local provider to spearhead a cloud solution for enterprise and government customers

Microsoft has selected Revera as the first local provider to spearhead a cloud solution for enterprise and government customers built upon Microsoft’s business productivity technologies in New Zealand. Revera’s hybrid cloud service, Homeland Collaboration, works through a combination of Revera’s private cloud and Microsoft’s public cloud solutions. “Revera’s Homeland Collaboration services will bring a hybrid capability to New Zealand that is integral to Microsoft’s cloud strategy. As part of a global initiative to provide in-country communications and collaboration services, we evaluated our local market and partner eco-system which resulted in Microsoft selecting Revera to work in conjunction with our global consulting services organisation as the first such partner for the New Zealand market," says Paul Muckleston, Microsoft New Zealand’s managing director. “Revera has been a strong Microsoft partner for many years and was an early adopter of Microsoft System Center and Windows Server with Hyper-V. They have the right experience and skills and their Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) capability is mature and proven," he adds. According to Revera general manager Robin Cockayne Homeland Collaboration "is geared to organisations seeking a sovereign-safe cloud computing environment for essential business services and communication". "Revera is pleased to be part of small number of partners selected globally to work with Microsoft’s consulting services organisation to achieve architectural best practices in building cloud collaboration services. Revera is building a three year roadmap for enterprise worthy hybrid cloud services which will include Microsoft’s soon to be released new versions of Office 2013, Exchange 2013, SharePoint 2013 and Lync 2013," he adds.

Cockayne says Revera is investing a significant proportion of its innovation budget in Homeland Collaboration and expected to launch a service portal, with beta clients, within months.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
