DiData to launch Auckland-based Cloud facility in October

The facility will bring DiData’s total number of global MCP locations to 13 and is expected to address the demand for cloud services in New Zealand.

Dimension Data (DiData) has announced that it will be adding an Auckland-based managed cloud platform (MCP) in October this year.

The facility will bring DiData’s total number of global MCP locations to 13 and is expected to address the demand for cloud services in New Zealand.

James Walls, CTO of DiData NZ, said the development is in response to demand.

“Kiwi organisations are jumping head first into cloud and have created a demand for a data center onshore to support their operations as well as business continuity, backup and replication. Our aim is to help our clients accelerate their ambition, and we believe our local presence and global reach can allow them to do just that.

“The new service gives clients access to a world-class local platform, as well as to our multiple global MCPs. This means export-oriented organisations have the opportunity to expand their business worldwide with low-latency access to secure, reliable, scalable cloud services,” said Walls.

According to the firm, all of its public MCPs are enterprise-ready, offering layers of security, administrative controls, 99.99 per cent availability SLAs on public cloud and integrated management capabilities.

Some of its NZ clients using global MCP capability includes apparel brand Kathmandu and dairy products exporter Westland Milk.

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

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.
