HP ProLiant Gen8: Integrated lifecycle automation

Cloud based Google apps service provider Cloud Sherpas has herded up Australian Google app reseller Devnet and will setting up shop in Sydney.

The Atlanta based apps company has over 500 managed clients globally and has been targeting the Australasian market for growth and as gateway to Asian expansion.

Cloud Sherpas new operations for Asia Pacific will be headquartered in Sydney, Australia.

“Sydney gives us a launch pad to all of Asia,” said Eran Gil, a co-founder of Cloud Sherpas and acting General Manager for the region.

Brisbane based Devnet provides Cloud Sherpas with well-connected, Australia talent, more Google Apps Certified Deployment Specialists, and regional customers including Technology One, Altium and Investor’s Club.

Last month Cloud Sherpas acquired New Zealand based app reseller WaveAdept, which will bolster the Asia Pacific presence.

The company will focus on building a client base and support network in Australia and New Zealand initially but in the medium term will ramp up activity through the region targeting Singapore, India, Japan and other Asian markets.

“Companies in the Asia-Pacific market are embracing the cloud,” says Cloud Sherpas CEO Jon Hallett. “Our acquisition of Devnet, an early Google partner, ensures that our local team will be well-equipped to serve the increasing demand from both enterprises and local businesses looking for an experienced Google Apps partner in the region,” he added.

Cloud Sherpa recently celebrated its one millionth user migration to Google Apps, and boasts more Google Apps Certified Deployment Specialists than any other partner in the world. ®
