Mitsubishi Motors Australia awards Cloud and Network Contract to Zettagrid

SYDNEY, 1 March 2016 – We are pleased to announce that Mitsubishi Motors Australia has awarded Zettagrid a three-year contract to supply cloud services and a national MPLS communications network.

The Zettagrid service provides Mitsubishi Motors Australia with the ability to scale their environment up or down throughout the duration of the contract through the use of the unique Zettagrid self-service portal. Mitsubishi Motors will also gain access to the latest release of VMware’s NSX network virtualization technology which assists in the movement of networks into the cloud. Mitsubishi Motors national private network will also be upgraded with link speeds increasing by between 5 and 10 times.

“We’re all about addressing complexity for our customers across Australia,” said Nathan Harman, Managing Director of Zettagrid. “With our award-winning and scalable infrastructure services adding real value, Mitsubishi Motors can take advantage of the simplicity and automation of our cloud and integrated communications network.”

Mark Tiddy, CIO of Mitsubishi Motors Australia, stated: “Combining our national network with Zettagrid’s cloud services is going to immediately realise benefits for us at Mitsubishi Motors as well as address a number of existing Telecommunications challenges. In addition, migrating to a VMware cloud really smooths the cloud transition process for our organisation because we are all VMware based.”

Zettagrid will deliver the IaaS cloud and network, while Mitsubishi Motors’ in-house IT team, along with their managed service provider, Vectra Corporation, will manage the operating and application layers.
