Australia-based adventure clothing and equipment company, Kathmandu, plans on growing its business beyond the confines of Australasia and Britain, and supporting that expansion with Cloud services. And it has secured the services of Dimension Data to provide it with the technology it needs to achieve those objectives.
The ICT solutions and service provider put out a statement on Tuesday (February 26, 2013) saying Kathmandu had given them a contract to "deploy an advanced cloud service infrastructure" based on its Public Compute-as-a-Service "offering." Once fully deployed, the setup will provide Kathmandu "on-demand, self-service, pay-for-use access and control of virtual servers, storage and networking," executives at Dimension Data said.
Stressing the importance of infrastructure speed and flexibility to his organisation, Kathmandu's CIO Grant Taylor, said, "Our vision for 2013 and beyond is to make use of Dimension Data's advanced cloud services. This means we will have the ability to start projects immediately and scale easily to meet demand." He also pointed out that he had a "new customer relationship management project in the pipeline" and that he expects to run through it more quickly, smoothly and to great benefit, due to the new cloud services to come out of his new Cloud services.
