NSW Govt adds NetApp to CPA Panel
The NSW Government has added cloud-centric software company NetApp to its Cloud Purchasing Arrangements Panel as part of its push to ensure all agencies are using public cloud for a minimum 25% of their ICT services by 2023.
The CPA is a collection of NSW whole-of-government contracts with cloud service providers covering the consumption of cloud and associated services by state government agencies and other eligible non-government bodies.
Participants are able to consume infrastructure-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service cloud services on per-agreed rates based on whole-of-government volume discounts, to reduce both sourcing costs and the need for individual contract negotiations.
NetApp has been added to the panel following a qualification process that has verified the utility of NetApp GovCloud as a reliable and secure service supporting production, backup and disaster recovery requirements, NetApp VP of Systems Engineering Matt Hurford said.
“Across the globe, public sector organisations rely on NetApp to provide them with the ability to make technology decisions that will deliver a high-quality citizen experience while meeting operational requirements,” he said.
“NetApp has been delivering industry-leading services to Australian Government agencies for more than 20 years, supporting citizen services though our innovative technology. NetApp GovCloud is well established, with a number of large agencies on the cloud platform managing over 10 PB of storage under contracts, alongside managed compute nodes for NSW Government agencies.”
