Macquarie Cloud launches SaaS offering on Azure
Macquarie Technology Group subsidiary Macquarie Cloud Services has launched a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering on the Azure Marketplace for Australian organisations transacting directly with Microsoft.
The new offering, Macquarie Guard, automates guardrails into Azure services to support cost optimisation and governance, as well as accelerated development of applications on the platform.
The solution includes more than 50 unique applications supporting enhanced monitoring, reporting and security capabilities, according to Macquarie Cloud Services Head of Azure Naran McClung.
“Our purpose is to help customers that are underserved and overcharged succeed. We’re ready to bring that expertise and our NPS-proven service to a whole new segment, right as organisations are increasing their cloud footprint and looking to technologies like AI and machine learning,” he said.
The platform includes functionality such as auto-remediation, auto-healing, continuous cost optimisation, compliance and governance, advanced logging, alerting, monitoring, ticketing and reporting, McClung said.
The launch follows Microsoft’s recent announcement that it will invest $5 billion in the next two years to bolster Australian cybersecurity, cloud and AI capabilities.
Microsoft Chief Partner Officer for Australia and New Zealand Vanessa Sorenson said the company welcomes partnerships with companies like Macquarie Cloud Services.
“Customers are truly seeing what real transformation means by leading with securing their data,” she said. “Macquarie Cloud Services is part of this transformation journey Microsoft is on. Together we can provide a secure lens and guardrails around customers’ cloud environments, safeguard their data and service what they truly need to transform.”
