Hosting service provider Servers Australia has partnered with Hewlett Packard Enterprise to provide enterprise cloud hosting infrastructure in Australia and New Zealand.
The partnership also marks the end of Servers Australia’s relationship with whitebox cloud hardware provider Supermicro.
The company said the move to HPE is an industry first where small and medium-sized businesses can access “enterprise-grade” cloud infrastructure.
“Servers Australia has decided to move away from Supermicro, which is traditionally known as the white-box cloud hardware of choice, and partner with HPE,” said Servers CTO and Co-Founder Peter Betyounan. Australia.
“This is an industry first that gives all small and medium-sized businesses access to true enterprise-level cloud infrastructure.”
Servers Australia added that the partnership allows it to deliver larger solutions in days instead of months.
“Australian distributors have always been an obstacle when it comes to large cloud infrastructure projects,” the company said.
“Now that is no longer the case, as we can leverage HPE’s massive infrastructure capacity as well as its logistics strengths in our Australian and New Zealand points of presence.
The agreement also allows Servers Australia to continue to offer the latest Intel and AMD processors, including the latter’s EPYC Milan range. The company has already rolled out the new EPYC chips to current customers, saying customers have seen improvements over the older Intel chips they replaced.
The deal also includes the inclusion of HPE InfoSight, an AI-powered autonomous monitoring operation platform to ensure Servers Australia’s cloud environments are always on and “always fast”, delivering insights and information for the infrastructure on servers and all storage and virtualized resources.
Speaking to CRN, Betyounan said Servers Australia is keen to get into the enterprise space as it sells a large number of VMware workloads.
“We wanted a brand that really gave customers peace of mind that the infrastructure was never in question,” he said.
“These days in the cloud, you don’t know what hardware you’re on and it’s never discussed. No one knows what kind of hardware you are on.
“With HPE, we know that every piece of equipment used there needs to be branded and certified. We wanted reliability from the company and that is what we are looking for.
Betyounan added that the partnership has already seen an explosion in sales, saying Servers Australia has resulted in multimillion-dollar revenue.
