iseek Communications, an enterprise-grade data centre provider, announced today that it has signed Data People, an IT infrastructure provider, into its recently launched data centre on Sydney’s North Shore.
Data People offers IT infrastructure management and cloud services, helping customers transition into the cloud without the traditional challenges of moving to a cloud-based infrastructure. The company helps customers build a private cloud in their own data centre, host it outside their organisation or transition to a hybrid mixture of the two.
Data People chose iseek’s data centre in Gore Hill to provide cloud infrastructure to their customers.
“iseek allowed us to build national network infrastructure for our customers rapidly and easily at a competitive price,” said Data People’s Founder and Managing Director, Bill Bilalis.
“We had some real traffic issues with our previous providers and we just couldn’t guarantee our customers network speed. So, we started talking to other providers.
“We were in discussions with multiple carriers when we met iseek. Their ability to aggregate all these different carrier services and provide a single managed data network just made our life easy.
“The iseek network with its high SLAs lets us deliver the best service to our customers. One of our clients in the not-for-profit sector had issues with their previous carrier. They were consistently dropping traffic, and were left with outages on a service they were paying a premium for. With iseek, we can deliver something that makes their business work,” continued Bilalis.
Data People offers solutions primarily for mid-sized corporates, as well as for the education and not-for-profit sectors. Some of their customers include DP World Australia, Fantastic Furniture, Canteen Australia and University of New South Wales.
iseek Communication’s General Manager, Hugh Smith said: “Partnering up with Data People has given us the opportunity to provide reliable, secure hosting service to their clients, especially in the education sector where they are helping more and more institutions embrace cloud technology.”
