Leading Australian digital infrastructure operator iseek has partnered with YourDC to launch South Australia’s most advanced cloud services spanning infrastructure, storage, back-up, disaster recovery, virtual servers, firewalls and testing as-a-service.
YourDC Cloud leverages iseek’s proven Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IAAS) platform to provide South Australian government and enterprise customers with greater IT infrastructure flexibility, scalability, and efficiency.
iseek’s extensive cloud services allow South Australian businesses to more effectively partner with YourDC as their needs develop, with customers now able to easily scale resources, such as virtual servers, storage, and networking, to meet increases in demand or unexpected spikes in traffic.
YourDC Cloud is tailored to meet individual customer workload, security, and compliance requirements, and is available in public, private and hybrid solutions. Private cloud access comprises exclusively allocated servers, storage and network for enhanced security and performance, while hybrid allows customers to integrate their on-premise and public cloud resources.
Hosted in South Australia’s only Tier 3 rated data centre facility, YourDC Cloud offers superior security with in-built encryption, secure boot, and secure network segmentation protecting sensitive data against cyber threats. It provides greater control over data location and storage, ensuring data sovereignty and compliance with a wide range of industry standards.
Acquired by iseek in September 2022, YourDC is an established supplier of critical infrastructure to government and blue-chip enterprise customers with its digital platform and services hosted in South Australia and supported by an Australian team.
iseek CEO Jason Gomersall said, “YourDC’s enhanced product capability reflects the complementary growth opportunities that first attracted us to the business. The new offering combines our industry-leading
cloud services with VMware’s virtualisation technology and YourDC’s local data centres to offer a best-in-class digital solution for the South Australian market.
“Digital infrastructure demand continues to grow, supported by increased data sovereignty, security and data protection requirements. Natural disasters across the country have also highlighted the very real need for organizations of all sizes to invest in back-up and recovery capability.”
YourDC CEO Scott Hicks said, “Our new cloud services provide significant benefits for our South Australian customers, including reduced latency, enhanced security and compliance, improved connectivity, and data sovereignty. We recognise our customers’ critical infrastructure requirements can change quickly, and offer the flexibility to cost-effectively scale up or down services with consumption pricing and the ability to transfer spend between solutions.”
