Infosys and Gen-i host Microsoft software in local cloud


Infosys and Gen-i have announced an Australian-based hosted service offering a range of Microsoft products from the cloud.

Using the Infosys Cloud Ecosystem Hub to provide centralised control of public and private cloud services along with Gen-i's infrastructure, the partners offer a range of Microsoft software including System Center, Exchange Server, SharePoint, Lync, and virtualised desktops.

Data centres in Australia and New Zealand can be selected as required.

"Bringing greater transparency and accountability is a huge challenge for clients adopting cloud," said Vishnu Bhat, vice president and global head of cloud at Infosys.

"We are addressing the complex contractual, sovereignty and security issues of large enterprises by providing a single point of accountability, single contract and single invoice for clients who may be integrating multiple public and private cloud workloads."

Paul Wilson, Gen-i managing director Australia, said "The objective of this partnership is to help our Australian clients consume a hybrid portfolio of private and public cloud services at their own pace, scale and business need, all while being managed and hosted in Australia."

"By offering a single point of management reporting and accountability, we are seeking to deliver a seamless client experience and enable our clients to gain efficiencies through a choice of services, without compromising on performance or security."

Pip Marlow, managing director, Microsoft Australia, said "Our partnership with Infosys and Gen-i offers Australia a simpler and more controlled migration path to the cloud."
