Multinational IT products and services distribution firm Tech Data Australia has launched its new wholesale IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) cloud-based platform which will be hosted by Macquarie Cloud Services. The new wholesale service offering includes data backup, disaster recovery, data centre expansion as well as scale-out storage.

For its existing partners, this offering is an addition to the private cloud technology market in which Macquarie Cloud Services is a player along with Global Switch, NEXTDC and Equinix. 

Tech Data & its new IaaS cloud platform

In a statement, Andy Berry, Tech Data ANZ boss said Cloud by tech data allows them to offer their customers a robust cloud-based infrastructure that can be customized to meet the partner’s requirements and customers across a wide range of industry sectors.

A Macquarie Cloud spokesperson said in the same statement that the deliverables resulting from this consortium will be cost-effective and class-leading services to the partner ecosystem of Tech Data Australia. Macquarie Cloud Services has its facilities only in Canberra and Sydney which potentially limits the effectiveness of this offering for partners located outside these cities.
