Online Services Corporation Selects Melbourne as Headquarters for Cloud-Based Solutions; 60 New Jobs Reflect the State of Victoria's Growth in ICT

Online Services Corporation will be one of the first Australian companies to bring Microsoft's cloud-based Online Services solutions to the Australian market

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Victorian Minister for Information and Communications Technology John Lenders today announced the launch of Online Services Corporation (OSC), a new business focused on delivering Microsoft cloud computing solutions. OSC is headquartered in the State of Victoria, Australia's capital city, Melbourne.

As the CEO of OSC, Karl Redenbach, also CEO of the fast-growing nSynergy Group, will create 60 new jobs as part of the new venture and promote Victoria's information and communication technology (ICT) expertise internationally.

"With increasing demand for cloud-based solutions following the recent announcement of Microsoft's Office 365, Online Services Corporation is well-placed to continue Victoria's dominance of the ICT market," said Lenders. "OSC has just established offices in San Diego, the UK and Shanghai, providing new export opportunities and showcasing Victoria's ICT expertise in these significant markets."

The State of Victoria is Australia's ICT capital with more than 2,000 jobs created so far this year, according to Lenders. The recent release of the $110-million Victorian ICT Action Plan will play a key role in increasing economic prosperity of the state of Victoria.

Redenbach's recent appearance on The Secret Millionaire series has increased awareness of his reputation as a leader in the ICT community along with his ground-breaking work as CEO of nSynergy Group.

"Launching our presence into the US and UK makes OSC the first truly global Microsoft partner to specialize 100 percent in the Online Services space -- we are leading the pack," said Redenbach.

"OSC will also be taking a leading role in helping shape Microsoft's future cloud strategy through representing the Asia Pacific region on its global partner advisory council. This is another vote of confidence in Victoria with our highly skilled workforce, competitive tax system and a very supportive government," said Lenders.

Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
"NetApp's vision is how we help organizations manage data - delivering the right data in the right place, in the right time, to the people who need it, and doing it agnostic to what the platform is," explained Josh Atwell, Developer Advocate for NetApp, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, will discuss why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices ra...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
The Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), which enables organizations to seamlessly run in a hybrid cloud model (public + private cloud), is here to stay. IDC estimates that the software-defined networking market will be valued at $3.7 billion by 2016. Security is a key component and benefit of the SDDC, and offers an opportunity to build security 'from the ground up' and weave it into the environment from day one. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Reuven Harrison, CTO and Co-Founder of Tufin, ...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In their Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, and Mark Lav...
Many organizations are now looking to DevOps maturity models to gauge their DevOps adoption and compare their maturity to their peers. However, as enterprise organizations rush to adopt DevOps, moving past experimentation to embrace it at scale, they are in danger of falling into the trap that they have fallen into time and time again. Unfortunately, we've seen this movie before, and we know how it ends: badly.
TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a common and reliable transmission protocol on the Internet. TCP was introduced in the 70s by Stanford University for US Defense to establish connectivity between distributed systems to maintain a backup of defense information. At the time, TCP was introduced to communicate amongst a selected set of devices for a smaller dataset over shorter distances. As the Internet evolved, however, the number of applications and users, and the types of data accessed and...
