Multicloud services provider Rackspace Technology has extended its Amazon Web Services offerings to Australia.
In addition to AWS capabilities, Rackspace will also bring in application modernisation, machine learning (ML), Internet of Things (IoT), containers, and serverless computing offerings to Australian customers.
The company also said it looks to grow its Australia-based team and roll out new AWS migrations and cost management initiatives for 2021.
“We continue to see sustained growth in this market, with an increasing number of Australian customers trusting us to support their cloud journeys,” Rackspace CTO Tolga Tarhan said.
“As our global footprint continues to expand, our full spectrum of cloud services will support some of the world’s most complex technology projects. We look forward to enabling our Australian customers to build new revenue streams, increase efficiency, and deliver innovative experiences.”
Rackspace said the expansion also further establishes its leadership in the Asia-Pacific and Japan market.
Rackspace APJ chief technology officer Emma Pudney said, “As cloud technologies continue to gain traction across a number of Australian industries, the need for a partner with exceptional support and deep expertise has become paramount.”
“Rackspace Technology’s investment in this space is a testament to the company’s longstanding commitment to exceeding growing customer needs.”
Rackspace ANZ managing director Sean Girvin said, “As demand for cloud services continues to grow in ANZ and 61% of Australian IT leaders prioritise investments in cloud infrastructure, we’re focused on providing our customers with the latest technology solutions to maintain their competitive edge."
"The extension of AWS capabilities is just one example of this, and by expanding our local team, we’re well-positioned to support ANZ businesses embrace and optimise cloud innovations for years to come.”
