Datacom has been named the 2012 Cisco Australia and New Zealand Partner of the Year. Earlier, it had won similar partner of the year awards from EMC, VMWare and Trend Micro.
CEO Jonathan Ladd says Cisco provides key underpinning technology for Datacom’s expanded Cloud Services capability and scale. “New Cloud Services customers include the New Zealand Government, Victoria SES and the WHK Group,” he says. “We now have a total of eight cloud nodes up and running across the region, all but one in our own data centres, with others in the planning stage. We expect further rapid growth.” He says the company also recently won the 2012 award for Best Local Provider of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Cloud Services in a comprehensive review of cloud service providers in Australia, published by specialist IT market research firm Longhaus. Datacom is a Cisco Gold Partner. The company employs 3800 people and has revenues of more than $A650 million.
