The Honorable Steven Joyce, Minister for Economic Development has today launched New Zealand’s first and only fully-automated cloud service, the Catalyst Cloud.

The product of two years of research and development and millions of dollars of investment, the Catalyst Cloud brings full automation and internationally competitive pricing to New Zealand businesses.

With a capacity of 100,000 virtual servers, and the potential to keep more than $40 million a year in New Zealand, the Catalyst Cloud is designed to provide greater flexibility and scalability for businesses looking to drive efficiencies and encourage innovation.

The Catalyst cloud features real time provisioning of virtual machines, network, object and block storage all from a web dashboard with business needs scaled out or in according to demand.

The Catalyst Cloud uses a “pay as you go” model that requires no upfront investment, no long-term commitment and offers extremely competitive hourly rates.

“With the Catalyst Cloud, we wanted to deliver powerful, flexible compute, network and storage capability at a competitive cost," says Don Christie, Director, Catalyst.

"Kiwi businesses will get similar functionality as AWS, but with the privacy benefits and no latency that local hosting provides.

"The Catalyst Cloud gives people access to scalable, cost-effective infrastructure as a service, hosted here in New Zealand.

"That is going to drive more productivity and innovation that shipping your data offshore."

Christie says the Catalyst Cloud is built using commodity hardware and and Open Source software, and is developed on OpenStack, the open source cloud platform originally written by NASA and Rackspace, and built by the talented open source technologists at Catalyst.
