Openstack ‘queens’ deployed

OpenStack Queens, the 17th version of the most widely deployed open source cloud infrastructure software has been deployed to both the Melbourne and Canberra regions.

This upgrade offers a packed release with advancements benefiting not only enterprises with mission-critical workloads but also organizations investing in emerging use cases like containers, NFV, edge computing and machine learning.

Cloud Central acquired by the Vintek Group

More information on the acquisition can be found with our press release here:

This is part of the Vintek Group’s aim to build to a national $100M company over the next 5 years.

This follows the recent acquisition of Regal IT in December 2017 and the acquisition of a national data centre business Intervolve in 2016.

Vintek now has significant presence in Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and Adelaide – and will continue to expand nationally.

The acquisition allows the Group to immediately expand their customer base, as well as their deployed OpenStack infrastructure, with OpenStack deployments across the Intervolve data centre network Australia-wide.
