Australia : ANITTEL inks contract with Tasmanian government to supply local agencies with IaaS.

A contract has been inked by the Anittel with the Tasmanian government to supply local agencies with infrastructure as a service (IS).

It adds to a $17 million, three-year deal Anittel won in 2012 to roll out Tasmania's managed voice services.

Under the new agreement, Anittel will supply "units" of computing power and storage. Managing director Peter Kazacos described the offering as "bare bones" and said government agencies would be able to pick up and drop units according to their needs.

As per Kazacos, "More and more clients want an opportunity to buy bare bones infrastructure as a service rather than spending on managed services. For organisations throughout Australia, this is the new way to buy hardware and software. We already have views from the Tasmanian government that there are a number of agencies interested. There's got to be competitive positioning. There are too many people in congested areas offering the same stuff. You have got to have a differentiator."

The contracts value would be devolving on the number of individual government agencies that take up the service.

Anittel's service will go live in early October to considerable demand.

The Tasmanian government has presented the second contract to the Anittel and one of many regional projects the company has been working on. Kazacos claims servicing regional communities is one way Anittel differentiates itself from uniform rivals.
