How Can we Make OpenStack Work for you?

There’s just something about OpenStack. Not many people get it – but we do. The ability to look under the hood and see how it ticks. The tapping of thousands of developers keyboards fixing bugs and making improvements. The roar of a diverse community spanning multiple countries and cultures. We’re OpenStack veterans, building the APAC community from the ground up. The open source cloud is a jungle for some, but it’s a playground for Aptira.

OpenStack Specialists

We’re APAC for OpenStack!

Aptira is the leading provider of OpenStack services in the APAC region. We have successfully delivered clouds from the smallest enterprise deployment to the largest public clouds all whilst remaining independent from the major technology vendors and the expensive lock-in this entails.

We specialise in private and hybrid clouds, managed services, as well as custom development and integration to a wide range of service provider, government, educational, scientific and enterprise customers worldwide.

Our global team has experience operating some of Australia’s first clouds as well as some of it’s largest and fastest growing. Combining the learnings of the OpenStack community with Aptira’s local capabilities will provide the best possible combination of expertise and experience in building highly secure, high performance, fully functional cloud platforms.

OpenStack Planning

Your Stack – Built for you

It’s important to get value out of your cloud platform, and this is simply not possible with a standard cookie-cutter approach to cloud. Aptira can provide OpenStack planning and build you a tailor made cloud strategy that will meet your organisational goals and turn your business capabilities into a competitive advantage.

If you’re looking for a complete hands-off approach to your cloud management, we can do that too – with our Managed Cloud solutions.

OpenStack Development

Boost your Productivity

We can give your IT team the productivity boost that your business needs by providing OpenStack development and consulting to meet your requirements. Software development is one of our pillars of competence, and we have completed projects for several leading storage vendors, government funded initiatives and education/research consortia. Our team can develop a solution that will drive innovation or we can work alongside you to provide mentoring and lead your team to achieve your development goals.

If you have specific requirements, and there aren’t any tools on the market to suit your needs – let us know. Our Inventor of Solutionauting can provide you with a customised in-house tool to meet your requirements.

OpenStack Integration


OpenStack’s large ecosystem, open APIs and flexible architecture are enabling organisations to keep up with market demand for new applications and big data analytics. Our integration services will provide easy integration into your business operations, enabling you to stay ahead of your competition without getting stuck on a huge learning curve.

We understand that you are probably looking for integration with your existing billing, monitoring and provisioning systems rather than having yet another system pushed on you. We can work with your existing infrastructure teams to get the desired level of integration between an Aptira implemented cloud and those systems.
