NetApp joins NSW Government panel to make it’s technology accessible

Matthew Hurford, Vice President of Systems Engineering in Asia Pacific at NetApp

NetApp has recently been appointed to the NSW Government’s cloud purchasing arrangements (CPA) panel, making it easier for agencies to engage and use NetApp’s technologies and services. The cloud purchasing arrangements is a collection of NSW whole-of-government contracts with Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) for consumption of cloud and associated services by NSW Government agencies and other eligible non-government bodies.

What is the market offering of the CPA?

The CPA allows eligible agencies to consume infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) cloud services, by establishing a commercial offer based on whole-of-government volume, thereby reducing sourcing costs and demand for individual contractors.

NetApp’s agreement with the Government of New South Wales followed a qualification process to be admitted to the panel. The Government of New South Wales expects all its agencies will be using public cloud for a minimum 25 per cent of their ICT services by 2023.

What does Netapp bring to the CPA’s portfolio?

NetApp GovCloud provides a secure and reliable service, with a variety of performance profiles and features to meet production, backup and disaster recovery requirements,” said Matt Hurford, Vice President of Systems Engineering in Asia Pacific at NetApp.

“Worldwide, public sector organisations rely on NetApp to provide them with the ability to make tech decisions that will deliver a high-quality citizen experience and meet regulations.”

“NetApp has been delivering industry-leading services to Australian Government agencies for more than 20 years, supporting citizen services though our innovative tech,” said Matt Hurford.

“NetApp GovCloud is established with many agencies on the cloud, managing over 10PB of storage under contracts, alongside managed compute nodes for NSW Government agencies.”

NetApp’s agreement also extends these services into the three public cloud providers with a range of infrastructure-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service offerings to assist NSW Government agencies with data management and cost control in public cloud services.
