Brocade partners with Oper8 to offer cloud service delivery

Brocade announced that it has formed a reseller partnership with Oper8, a specialist Australian IT services provider.

Under the terms of the partnership, Oper8 will integrate Brocade Network Subscription into its managed and cloud service delivery models to give customers in Australia and New Zealand.

This will enable Oper8’s customers to address their increasing networking challenges through a flexible pay-for-usage model, particularly as they go through the process of digital transformation.

Mike Andrea, managing director of Oper8 said, “Brocade Network Subscription offers a good cost-effective and operational-based financial model that fits within our service delivery structure for delivering as-a-service models to customers, getting away from the big capital expense requirements of traditional systems.”

Established in 2012, Oper8 is based in Queensland and delivers IT managed services, cloud storage, internet and WAN communications, and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) to businesses in Australia and New Zealand.

It targets a broad range of industries, from the micro business to the enterprise level, with a unique blend of services, products, and solutions.

Paul Barge, ANZ channel manager, Brocade said, “Oper8 offers the Brocade Partner Network Program impressive sales and technical skills and expertise that aligns with our own goals of providing flexible, agile, and value-for-the-money solutions and services.”
