HdS hits Australian jackpot

Locally owned Hosting and Data Services has hooked ia big Australian fish.

The partnership with Nextgen, a network and data centre operator, gives HdS a launching pad in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.

HdS managing director Roger Cockayne says the arrangement provides a quick and cost-effective start for his company’s IT infrastructure services business in Australia.

“Nextgen is in the same business as us but has a different focus. We do IT infrastructure and they do network and general infrastructure,” he says.

Cockayne says HdS will overlay its virtual data centre model onto Nextgen’s physical network and data centres, which are fibre-linked.

The company will also target customers looking for a data centre partner and will use sister company Hitachi Data Systems to access channel partners and customers.

Cockayne says the deal provides an IT gateway for any New Zealand company wanting to take its model to Australia.

“It’s an easy start for companies launching into Australia – particularly internet and application service providers who need data centre space. Plus they can pay with New Zealand dollars.”
