GPK Group selects Dell EMC Cloud

By

Melbourne and Brisbane-based IT service provider, GPK Group, has selected Dell EMC Cloud for Microsoft Azure Stack to underpin its hybrid cloud offering.

The deal will see the deployment of the first full production Microsoft Azure Stack system in Australia and New Zealand, and one of the first in the APJ region.

Dell says its EMC Cloud for Microsoft Azure Stack will allow GPK Group to enhance its on-premises hybrid cloud by using Microsoft Azure services from within its data centre.

The purpose-built, hyper converged infrastructure platform was delivered as a turn-key solution and was operational in five days. The system is fully supported by Dell EMC, including integrated health monitoring, reporting and operational updates.

According to Dell, the technology has delivered a seamless and consistent Microsoft Azure experience — whether on-premises or in the public cloud — and allowed GPK Group to extend its hybrid cloud offering to its managed service customers.

GPK Group chief executive Grant Klaaysen said, “As part of our ongoing strategy to address digital change, we identified our customers need the flexibility of choice between public, private and hybrid cloud deployments”.

“More importantly, they want suppliers that not only understand the technical detail but also the benefits that cloud technology brings to their whole business. GPK Group and our customers need efficiency, flexibility, and scalability to reduce costs to serve whilst also providing opportunities to create new sources of revenue quickly and simply. This initiative creates this possibility.

"We’re proud to be Australia’s first Azure Stack Managed Service Provider. This is a fantastic opportunity to continue GPK Group’s and our customer's growth objectives.”

Andrew Foot, general manager, Australia and New Zealand, Dell EMC Converged Platforms and Solutions Division, said: “Australian and New Zealand organisations have eagerly awaited a solution that allows them to get a simple, consistent user-experience from their hybrid cloud. This platform gives GPK Group access to unmatched levels of integration, automation and manageability, allowing them to increase IT efficiency and simply move workloads on and off premises as desired."
