VMware has awarded Datacom as its Asia Pacific Service Provider Partner of the Year and one of three finalists in the vendor’s global Service Provider Partner awards to be presented early next month. Steve Matheson, Datacom’s group chief operating officer, has led the creation of Datacom’s cloud platform. He says its partnership with VMware allows it to offer a secure and reliable solution. “Without virtualisation it would not be possible to create the economies of scale that allow a service provider such as Datacom to create the optimisation…for our customers.”
Datacom has more than 100 customers across Australia and New Zealand, including many government agencies, using shared infrastructure services platform.
It has invested in datacentres and the shared infrastructure platform in New Zealand and Sydney and is rolling out datacentre investment in Australia’s other main cities.
