Free inbound data transfer

23 April, 2020

Moving data into the Catalyst Cloud is now free. As part of our drive to make true cloud computing more accessible to kiwi organisations, Catalyst Cloud have zero-rated inbound data transfer. It’s just one of the initiatives launched by the local cloud computing innovator to improve access to cloud computing in NZ.

The zero rating of data ingress charges relates to both national and international data. Your data is kept securely here, in Aotearoa, protected by New Zealand law and data privacy regulations, in data-centres powered by renewable energy generating companies.

Igor Portugal, Catalyst Cloud’s Chief Growth Officer, said “Making inbound data transfer free, coupled with our new low-cost data storage option, gives New Zealand businesses a much cheaper way to move and store their data safely in New Zealand. With the price of the services linked to NZ dollar, processing that data in New Zealand has also become a whole lot cheaper than overseas. This means that where cost is a consideration, New Zealanders don’t need to look offshore as they have a world class public cloud service available right here in New Zealand accessible at a competitive price.”
