Australia's Bureau of Meteorology has inked a contract with IT solutions provider Unisys to design, build and manage new secure cloud infrastructure and an upgraded wide area network to better support current services and indirectly provide a “modern operating environment”.

The three-year contract is valued at approximately $16.48 million, with options for multiple extensions with a total maximum term of not more than nine years.

The Bureau of Meteorology is Australia's national weather, climate and water agency and Unisys Asia Pacific vice-president and general manager Rick Mayhew said, “The new hybrid cloud infrastructure, designed and supported by Unisys, will provide a secure and resilient environment to better support current services, as well a modern operating environment with the scalability to quickly and effectively implement future requirements".

“The Bureau’s services are used to assist in making life-impacting decisions – from whether to embark on a family fishing trip, to calculating how much fuel an aircraft requires for a flight.

“Unisys has a wealth of experience helping government organisations transform their environments to provide better, more efficient and secure services using digital technologies, including the public cloud.

“In addition, we bring specific weather expertise from more than 30 years providing reliable and timely weather data and products in the US, including to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. We look forward to helping the Bureau of Meteorology provide its critical weather services to Australians to keep them informed and arm them with the best information to make safe and informed decisions.”
