Microsoft picks Revera for hybrid cloud

Revera first NZ company to provide private infrastructure for Microsoft's public cloud offerings

Microsoft has announced it will collaborate with local hosting company Revera to provide its public cloud systems on Revera's private cloud infrastructure in a hybrid cloud service that Revera has named "Homeland Collaboration".

Microsoft New Zealand managing director Paul Muckleston said in a media statement that the new service was part of a global initiative to provide localised communications and collaboration services.

“Revera has been a strong Microsoft partner for many years and was an early adopter of Microsoft System Center and Windows Server with Hyper-V," said Muckleston. "They have the right experience and skills and their Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) capability is mature and proven.”

Revera general manager Robin Cockayne said that Homeland Collaboration is aimed at "organisations seeking a sovereign-safe cloud computing environment for essential business services and communication."

Revera said it was "building a three year roadmap for enterprise-worthy hybrid cloud services" including forthcoming 2013 versions of Microsoft’s Office , Exchange, SharePoint and Lync3 products.

Cockayne said Revera expected to launch a service portal, with beta clients, "within months".
