Discover the Power of BTG’s Comprehensive Cloud Computing Solution, MergeIT.
BTG’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering, MergeIT, is the ideal choice for businesses seeking a secure, reliable, cost-effective, New Zealand based Cloud platform. With a focus on performance, resilience, strong security, and a competitive pricing structure, we have all the tools to help you succeed in the Cloud.
Why Choose MergeIT?
Easy to Manage Cloud Spend
MergeIT offers a straightforward and flexible billing model, based on three key variables; CPU, RAM, and Storage. We believe in transparency and eliminating complex pricing structures commonly found elsewhere. With our simple billing system, you can easily understand and manage your costs. Public Cloud providers will often charge for transferring data in and out of their cloud platform. These charges can be incredibly difficult to predict and often lead to unexpected bills. We do not impose charges for data transference, which reduces overall costs and avoids any unwanted surprises.
Unmatched Performance and Speed
Our customers often tell us about the exceptional speed and performance which they enjoy on our platform. Unlike other Cloud providers, we prioritise performance by avoiding over-subscription of resources. This ensures that your applications and services run smoothly and efficiently, delivering a superior user experience.
Located in New Zealand, server workloads on our IaaS platform are not subjected to latency delays that are commonly experienced when hosted in off-shore Public Cloud platforms. This enables us to host legacy business applications without compromising performance. In many cases, they run better than ever
Intuitive Customer Portal and Accessibility
Managing your cloud environment has never been easier. Our user-friendly customer portal provides a seamless experience, allowing you to have full visibility of your server workloads and enabling efficient administration. With our intuitive interface, you can effortlessly control and monitor your cloud environment, saving valuable time and effort.
Robust Security and Compliance Measures
Your information security is our top priority. We subject our platform to third-party penetration tests to ensure its resilience against potential threats. We also offer managed backups that are stored in a secure offsite location, providing an additional layer of protection. To enhance security further and meet a part of the cyber insurance requirements, we strongly recommend air-gapped tape backups, allowing you to maintain complete control over your data.
Disaster Recovery (DR) Replication
We take data protection seriously. Our platform has built-in DR replication between our data centres in Albany Auckland, Kapua Hamilton, and Gloucester Christchurch, ensuring resilience for your critical applications and data. With our reliable DR capabilities, you can ensure business continuity and minimise downtime during a disaster.
Flexible Storage Options
We understand that every workload has unique storage requirements. That’s why we offer multiple tiers of storage based on performance. With our IaaS platform, you have the freedom to mix and match different tiers of storage within the same server. This flexibility enables you to optimise your resources, balancing performance needs with cost considerations.
In addition to the transactional storage tiers mentioned above, we also offer S3 compatible Object Storage. This storage option comes at a price point competitive to large hyperscale Public Cloud offerings without the delayed access or data transference fees.
Built on Open-Source Technology
Unlike many competitors who rely on off-the-shelf solutions with hefty licensing costs, our entire IaaS platform is built on open-source technology. This approach grants us the flexibility to scale our services and deliver them at a highly competitive price point. By leveraging open-source technology, we pass on the benefits of cost efficiency to our customers.
Managed Service Wrap
Combined with our highly acclaimed Managed Service, our clients enjoy all the above benefits of our IaaS platform, paired with an exceptional monitoring and maintenance service wrap. We have automated alerts and engineers on hand to respond where necessary. We can also take care of all day to day maintenance so you have one less thing to worry about.
Local Data Sovereignty
Our MergeIT servers are physically located in New Zealand, ensuring your data is always subject to New Zealand law. As a New Zealand-owned and operated company, we are one of the few trusted service providers guaranteeing data sovereignty for your business.
Unlike foreign-owned cloud providers with data residency in New Zealand, BTG ensures your data remains protected under New Zealand’s strict data privacy laws and is not subject to any foreign laws or access. Your data is protected by our nation’s comprehensive privacy and security regulations.
We support a range of New Zealand’s most inventive businesses offering them our industry-leading cloud solution.
