NZ SME market on the hunt for better, cheaper products
February 26, 2015
Cloud and other emerging technologies are helping SMEs to disrupt larger businesses, and there is an increasing demand in the New Zealand market for products that are agile and affordable.
Anton Aalders, Spectrum chief technology officer, says, “Cloud, and to a larger extent in New Zealand, IaaS offers the ability to leverage the latest enterprise class technologies at a cost competitive consumption model that may have otherwise been out of reach.
“This has huge business benefits enabling more focus on the agility of quality products to market and meeting their customer demands rather than managing legacy IT infrastructure.”
In order to capitalise on this and offer a product fit for SMEs, Spectrum has partnered up with Actifio.
Actifio’s new product, Actifio One ‘The Business Resiliency Cloud’, is built on copy data virtualisation technology and restores the capability of business applications, replacing data protection and management tools with a single cloud-based service.
Aalders says, “I grabbed the opportunity to join Spectrum and we became the first Actifio Managed Services Provider in country to offer this Copy Data Cloud service to our customers.
