blueAPACHE, a leading managed network and cloud solutions provider for organisations with business critical IT requirements, have been showcased by Hewlett Packard Global when promoting their Helion Cloud infrastructure.
When looking for IT as a Service (ITaaS) organisations from around the world to promote, Hewlett Packard turned to blueAPACHE.
“We built our Australian Private Cloud using HP infrastructure to service the evolving needs of our Managed Services, Network, Cloud and Voice clients. To be selected by Hewlett Packard Global as a showcase organisation to promote their evolving Cloud technologies speaks volumes about how advanced our solution is, and the caliber of our offering” said Chris Marshall, Managing Director at blueAPACHE.
Five years ago, the challenge faced by many technology companies was deciding to invest in your own infrastructure or become a cloud broker and aggregator.
The decision for blueAPACHE was a simple one as Chris Marshall explained “We are an organisation that prides itself on our technical capabilities and the depth of our skill set. A decision was made to invest in our own cloud, which would allow us to leverage the capabilities that we have in house and to also ensure that we could be accountable for the solutions that we were delivering to our clients.
“Surprisingly, we were one of a handful of organisations willing to take this approach and invest heavily in infrastructure – and this provides us with huge advantages over those who chose to aggregate and surrender control of the service they provide”
Since blueAPACHE first launched its Private Cloud for Australian businesses, the company has been able to scale tremendously, grow its IT as a Service (ITaaS) offering, and differentiate itself from the pack with its unique Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution.
The in-depth Hewlett Packard Global case study shows how investing in its own cloud infrastructure enabled blueAPACHE to evolve and expand its ITaaS model. It also highlights how blueAPACHE:
- significantly scaled its infrastructure from one to three data centers;
- created a level of business accountability through complete IT ownership, and combined engineering expertise and cloud technology to deliver complete end-to-end solutions;
- offered greater relevance to clients through packaged IT services; and
- built stronger client relationships that resulted in significant annuity services revenue growth.
