Partnership to bring Mesosphere’s cloud management technologies to Australian government

Macquarie Government has forged an exclusive partnership with San Francisco based multi-cloud automation platform specialist Mesosphere, in a bid to offer key cloud management technologies available to the Australian Government.

Under the partnership, Macquarie Government will provide and run Mesosphere’s DC/OS, which provides a big data platform-as-a-service and application development offering on its federally accredited cloud services. It will enable customers to modernise their IT environment for increased agility, flexibility, management, and security, the telco said.

“Macquarie Government is committed to delivering innovations that create a performance and security benefit for our government customers and steer their agencies toward a more efficient digital future,” said Macquarie Government MD Aidan Tudehope, billing Mesosphere as the most flexible platform for containerised, data-intensive applications enabling experimentation and choice of IT environment.

Macquarie Government has provided Mesosphere with a test facility and has completed proof-of-concept projects in its own local data centres.

“This is now available to demonstrate the value of Mesosphere DC/OS in enabling customers with data agility, for their data lakes, application development projects and adoption of hybrid cloud,” it said.
