We’re Australia’s secure cloud specialists

We have designed, built and automated the delivery of Australian Government security controls to create one of the world’s most secure clouds. Thanks to Vault, organisations can deploy services faster and securely, with flexibility and at hyperscale.

We pioneered the development of a cloud with security at its core, embedding Australian Government security controls natively into the cloud platform.

What’s more, we are Australian owned and operated, and were one of the first cloud platforms to be certified by the Australian Signals Directorate to manage and store classified data.

Unleashing Innovation


Government and critical industries need to able to quickly adapt to changing market conditions, which can be difficult when your organisation is caught up in the complexities of hardware and long-term budgeting. Vault provides you with future-proof cloud infrastructure that’s flexible; able to grow with your data needs while making data safely accessible to end users.

Our services leverage the strengths of your existing team. We liberate your innovators to create business solutions that work, while coders can focus on their core competency. Network engineers have the freedom to deploy environments that are trusted, secure and lightning fast.

Ensuring Flexibility Through Open Standards

OpenStack is our core technology. It allows us to offer greater flexibility to grow and iterate on a cloud platform without being locked into a specific vendor. OpenStack is one of the world’s fastest growing open-source communities and the largest and most widely adopted open-source cloud platform. Work undertaken on the OpenStack platform can be leveraged across most clouds.

OpenStack is built on open standards and works well with popular enterprise and open source technologies. This makes it ideal for heterogeneous infrastructure, just like Vault Cloud. OpenStack’s in-built security, complete scalability, open standards and interoperable platform all work seamlessly with Vault’s cloud.

Keeping Data in Australia


Vault Cloud operates out of world-class data centres specifically designed for accommodating sensitive data and workloads with strict operating controls. Our two data centres in Sydney and Canberra are centrally located to provide easy access to your critical data and infrastructure, regardless of your physical location, equipped with fully-redundant optical fibre connectivity for lightning-fast response times. Through these data centres, we provide a holistic cloud-computing environment that addresses requirements for:

  • Block storage
  • Object storage
  • Compute
  • Virtual networking
  • Auto-scaling resources
  • Automation

Delivering Security at Scale

Vault Cloud’s secure data centres are staffed around the clock to provide consistent, fast and scalable performance. That means you can trust us with your security, performance, reliability and capacity, while you focus on your core business.

Investing in Technology

We are the only Australian Hyperscale cloud built exclusively for security. We have engineered high-performance systems designed to scale up and scale out to deliver order of magnitude performance on legacy IT systems.

Increasing Performance

Our cloud was built to cater for intensive legacy workloads, but many intensive legacy workloads were not built for the cloud. We recognised early on that many large, legacy systems need to scale up first in order to be easily migrated, which is why over 94% of our infrastructure is common to the latest supercomputer.

Providing a Secure Home for the World’s Best Technology

Technology vendors deploying on premise to an unknown environment increases delivery risk and slows time to value. At the same time, many workloads are not suitable for public clouds and cause sales attrition. Our secure community cloud brings an added layer of security and assurance to rapidly changing commercial technology. Through automation, software can be deployed to a consistent dedicated on premise-like environment in minutes. This delivers all the cost savings and efficiencies of SaaS, but without compromising security.

Nurturing Talent


We know how important it is to upskill technology professionals for today’s digital and cloud driven computing environment. This, along with the increasing demand for training in the management and use of secure cloud, let us to open the Vault Academy in May 2018, which serves as a state-of-the-art training centre.

Aimed to support end-users such as software developers, infrastructure engineers, cloud architects and technical project leaders, our intensive instructor-led courses provide participants with the skills to understand cloud computing technology as well as the operational skills required to maintain secure cloud platforms.

Delivering Local Support


Just like our customers, our support is based in Australia. We have an Australian-based service desk and Security Operations Centre with around-the-clock support for high-priority incidents, including access to our technical subject matter experts.
