Australian Cloud

Australian Cloud provides all the benefits of public cloud with support for Oracle and SAP workloads combined with advanced networking, orchestration and automation to manage on-premise and cloud infrastructure variants as one.

Why Australian cloud?

Public cloud services have been widely adopted and deliver excellent value but tend to offer narrow service scope around specialised use cases.  Typically, this does not include support for enterprise applications nor does it support applications with compliance requirements as most public clouds are managed by non-Australian staff in a follow-the-sun support model which does not work for Australian based enterprises.

As a result, many Australian enterprise and government organisations cannot take full advantage of public cloud environments. This leaves a complex web of distributed environments, often creating a challenge to connect internal IT to the cloud.

NTT Communications ICT Solutions (NTT ICT) Australian Cloud was designed with these challenges in mind. 

The Australian Cloud platform is a hybrid cloud architecture comprising multiple flavours of compute (VMware, Oracle VM and Oracle SPARC) and storage (flash and traditional) with a self-service management tool that combine Australian cloud management and common third party clouds such as AWS, Azure and Google.

Australian Cloud is currently deployed in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra and is supplemented with operating system, database and security management.

BENEFITS 

Simplified Operational environment 

Australian Cloud combines popular Linux and Windows operating system options with Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux, and SAP HANA certified Red Hat support, as well as visibility and control over other common public cloud environments.

We also provide the network which simplifies trouble shooting by removing the finger pointing that happens between separate providers.

Overall, this makes it easier to manage IT and provides one throat to choke.

Faster, self-service based IT 

Australian Cloud comes with NTT ICT Cloud Control which provides orchestration and service catalogue functionality with portal and API access. The service catalogue can be fully customised to support a range of operating system templates across a number of cloud providers required by your organisation which reduces the time to deliver IT to your organization.  

Enhanced user experience  

As a network provider, we make it easy for your users to connect to applications in the Australian Cloud.  We are the number 1 internet backbone in Asia and are a leader in software-defined networking which dramatically improves end user experience.  We can also provide user experience monitoring tools so you know if something is going wrong in your application

Predictable, lower cost of ownership 

Because we provide data centres, network and managed services, it’s possible to reduce many of the Australian Cloud input costs – particularly for Internet. We also provide fixed cost and usage billing options so organisations can pick the spend profile that suits their budget. And for Oracle users, we can reduce Oracle application and DB licensing costs by using Oracle approved infrastructure.

Service credit and human backed services

Unlike most public cloud providers, we back our proposition with a service credit regime where we will pay service credits if you experience downtime. You also get access to a combination of human support with online support so you can pick the support mechanism you need at the time.And, we can provide operating system, database and security services.
