AUCloud Illuminates Sovereign Bridge across Australia


AUCLoud in partnership with NextDC is lighting up a Sovereign Bridge across the country to provide government and critical national industries with secure high-speed access to sovereign cloud services.

Recent legislation changes extended critical infrastructure obligations across 11 different sectors, which means the need for secure, sovereign services has never been higher.

AUCloud CEO Phil Dawson said, “Using AUCloud’s Sovereign Bridge, partners and customers will be able to benefit from faster, more efficient, more capable and more secure local access to their sovereign workloads across Australia.”

Built to enable local access to AUCloud’s secured environments, Sovereign Bridge provides partners and customers with connectivity between their existing data centre infrastructure and AUCloud sovereign cloud services. This will save them money and time, and significantly reduce security and operational risks when migrating workloads and data storage to AUCloud’s government “Certified Strategic” Sovereign Cloud environments.

"The Sovereign Bridge launch highlights the investment both AUCloud and NEXTDC have made and continue to make in Brisbane to support and secure Queensland’s digital economy. It is a critical component of our national expansion and an important milestone for Australian data security," Dawson said.

NextDC chief customer and commercial officer David Dzienciol said he is excited to see Sovereign Bridge enter the market and enable businesses with an added layer of data protection and service reliability.

“We know connectivity is a huge consideration for our customers when it comes to how they treat their data, but equally having the confidence that same data is secure and accessible locally is something taken very seriously without exception,” he said.

AUCloud Sovereign Bridge is the only recognised VMware Sovereign Cloud Provider in Australia and enables a seamless transition to sovereign data protection or migration from on-premises to the cloud from wherever you are in Australia.
