NetSuite to open Australian data centre

NetSuite announced today it has the budget and the green light to open a data centre in Australia, as soon as the operations team can implement it.

At today's opening keynote of Oracle+NetSuite SuiteWorld 2017, Jim McGeever, executive vice-president, NetSuite Global Business Unit, announced the new data centre.

In the context of what the Oracle acquisition means for NetSuite, he summed it up as "more".

"More countries, more industries, more products, more customer success," McGeever said.

Leveraging Oracle's size and resources allow NetSuite to truly go global, and advance much deeper, much faster, he said.

NetSuite had field offices in about 10 countries, while Oracle has vastly more. NetSuite now has the go-ahead to launch offices in more countries.

Similarly, NetSuite will leverage four additional Oracle development centres to work right away on globalisation features.

When it comes to data centres, McGeever said NetSuite had five data centres currently, three of which are in the US. By contrast, Oracle's core strategy is Platform as a Service (PaaS) with 21 state-of-the-art data centres built just in the last few years.

"NetSuite is going to more than double the amount of data centres as soon as possible," McGeever said. 

These data centres will be located in Chicago, Frankfurt, China, Japan, Singapore and Australia.

He said NetSuite was hiring and would take in more people in FY2018 than they had total employees in 2012.

"NetSuite can deliver to any company, any size, any country, any vertical and is the most widely deployed cloud ERP on the planet," McGeever said.

David has been computing since 1984 where he instantly gravitated to the family Commodore 64. He completed a Bachelor of Computer Science degree from 1990 to 1992, commencing full-time employment as a systems analyst at the end of that year. Within two years, he returned to his alma mater, the University of Newcastle, as a UNIX systems manager. This was a crucial time for UNIX at the University with the advent of the World-Wide-Web and the decline of VMS. David moved on to a brief stint in consulting, before returning to the University as IT Manager in 1998. In 2001, he joined an international software company as Asia-Pacific troubleshooter, specialising in AIX, HP/UX, Solaris and database systems. Settling down in Newcastle, David then found niche roles delivering hard-core tech to the recruitment industry and presently is the Chief Information Officer for a national resources company where he particularly specialises in mergers and acquisitions and enterprise applications.
