Award recognises Revera’s HPE launch-pad for Azure Stack by CloudCreator

Revera anointed Digital Transformation Innovator of the Year at Hewlett Packard Enterprise regional awards.

Spark-owned cloud services provider Revera has been recognised as Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s (HPE) Asia Pacific Digital Transformation Innovator of the Year.

Presented earlier this month in Singapore, the award recognises the deployment of HPE’s ProLiant for Azure Stack server platform to power up the Kiwi cloud provider’s Azure Stack offering, available through the company’s multi-cloud management interface CloudCreator.

“We’re thrilled HPE has recognised our innovation and vision for smarter ways to connect and manage hybrid clouds,” said Revera CEO Robin Cockayne. “From the time we’ve spent in HPE’s innovation lab to the smarts they bring to our HPE stack, HPE has been a priceless contributor to our Microsoft hybrid cloud services.”

Launched late 2017, Azure Stack by CloudCreator has quickly found favour with Kiwi businesses, with not-for-profit Patience Project the latest to join early adopters Webtools, and digital health provider iMOKO.

Andrew Bedford, HPE’s Account Director, said the award was a testament to Revera’s innovative approach to simplifying hybrid clouds and engaging with the global tech provider.  

“Revera has achieved tremendous success on the back of innovation that distinguishes their Azure Stack offering in a way that customers value,” he said. “Technology is a key enabler, and we’re really excited to see Azure Stack by CloudCreator rise on HPE Hybrid IT solutions.”

This latest award follows a decade-long partnership between the two companies, which last year saw Revera honoured as HPE’s leading service provider in the Asia Pacific Region.

Cockayne said both companies would continue to explore new multi-cloud services and consumption models to help New Zealand business get the best from the hybrid cloud.

“Clients have a fast maturing view of cloud commercials and demand better self-service control and more flexible consumption,” he said.

Revera with sister company CCL and parent Spark recently completed a national tour to showcase new possibilities in the hybrid cloud.

“Offering standard Azure Stack didn’t interest us – that’s a commodity game,” said Cockayne. “Azure Stack by CloudCreator is the country’s single largest investment in Microsoft hybrid cloud technology, offering unique add-on capabilities. We’ve staked our future empowering our clients to get the best out of their multi-cloud sourcing strategies by providing them with smart tools, services, and advice whenever they need it.”
