In a significant local government deal, Queensland local councils can now access cloud computing infrastructure to help protect critical tech systems during any disasters. The government can now store and manage data from remote locations that will ensure continuity for communication systems. This is part of the government strategy that helps in resilience and disaster recovery.The requirement for such cloud infrastructure has come into sharper focus with the spate of floods that Queensland has seen in the recent past. The floods had an impact on communications systems which in turn impaired the relief efforts. With cloud computing, data is stored in other locations which are off- shore or off site.
This means that when and if natural disasters strike, the networks can still remain up and running. GOVCLOUD is the services provider for this cloud infrastructure. The system will come up in partnership with Local Government Association of Queensland.
