25 Sep 17

The Instillery has inked a new deal with Google Cloud Platform, becoming one of the public cloud providers first New Zealand partners.

The Kiwi cloud service provider already has public cloud partnerships with AWS and Microsoft Azure and Jeremy Nees, The Instillery’s chief product officer, says the Google Cloud Platform deal enables the company to offer ‘a truly agnostic approach’.

Jeremy Nees, The Instillery’s chief product officer, says New Zealand has seen growing adoption of public cloud, with that trend accelerating this year.

“Having a multi-cloud strategy is about serving customer interests first, and enabling choice,” Nees says.

“Google Cloud offers some great services that we expect to be very compelling for our customers,” he adds.

“Making the right choice when embarking on a move can be the determining factor in the successful execution of an organisation’s digital strategy.”

Brendan Bain, head of Google Cloud Platform sales in New Zealand, says the partnership enables Kiwi organisations to realise the benefits of the Google Cloud Platform, which launched in the region earlier this year.

“Partners are a key part of Google Cloud in New Zealand,” Bain says.

“We are pleased to work with The Instillery to help more people and businesses innovate and deliver services using Google Cloud.”

Google launched its Sydney region in June, promising round-trip reductions in latency of 80% to 95% for Australian and New Zealand customers.

Fronde is also a New Zealand Google Cloud Platform partner.
