Share this on social media:

Macquarie Telecom has chosen to partner with Microsoft in the delivery VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud services through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

The provider’s SD-WAN solution is used in almost 4,000 sites across Australia by corporate customers and the new agreement will enable organisations with Azure public cloud environments to gain the benefits of SD-WAN via an enhanced Azure-enabled managed services capability. These include full visibility and control over up to 3,600 apps, the ability to prioritise or deprioritise apps in real time to optimise bandwidth and infrastructure, carrier neutrality and link remediation, which optimises networks to provide high speed and low latency.

Luke Clifton, group executive at Macquarie Telecom said: ‘We defined the Australian SD-WAN market by taking the complexity out of organisations’ increasingly-complex operating environments, and this agreement represents a huge milestone and validation of our technology. Combined with our industry-leading customer service and existing partnerships across the Macquarie Telecom Group, we now have an unmatched telco, cloud and network solution to resolve the challenges Australian businesses face at every touch point.’

Added Brett Shoemaker, business group leader Azure, Microsoft Australia: ‘Microsoft Australia continues to drive partner business acceleration through our commercial marketplaces. Our partners are delivering more innovation, expanding their business through more co-selling opportunities, and leveraging distribution options through our platforms. We look forward to the new agreement with Macquarie Telecom to deliver VeloCloud SD-WAN service to our customers in Australia through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.’

Sasha Emmerling, senior director of marketing, VeloCloud business unit concluded: ‘Macquarie Telecom is a valued VMware partner and a leader in SD-WAN deployments. We expect that Macquarie will continue to empower Australian organisations of all sizes with the technologies that enable and simplify digital transformation.’
