Tasmanian Government Selects Annitel To Deliver IaaS GovCloud Platform

The Tasmanian government has selected Australian IT & Telecommunications company Annitel to provide an Infrastructure as a Service solution for an initial period of two years. The size of the contract will be determined by uptake from Tasmanian government agencies, although “several” agencies reportedly have plans to use Annitel’s IaaS offering as soon as it becomes available. The Tasmanian government’s decision to select Annitel illustrates the global quality of government interest in cloud platforms. In the U.S., for example, Oracle recently launched an Oracle Government Cloud platform in an effort to compete with Amazon Web Services, IBM and Google in the government cloud computing space. Annitel’s IaaS platform for the government of Tasmania is expected to become available sometime in October.
