Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility (like the electricity grid) over a network.

With connectivity supplied by our nationwide network and our extensive internet service expertise, the ACS data centres are the ideal environment to host critical business and telecommunications infrastructure.
