The only NZ-owned cloud provider approved by the government

Catalyst Cloud is Aotearoa New Zealand's own cloud

Our all-of-government contract is tailored to the public sector

Public sector organisations throughout New Zealand are moving their digital services to the cloud. The government’s Cloud First policy provides strong direction and guidance.

And now there’s a New Zealand owned and operated cloud provider here to support them.

Catalyst Cloud is proud to be a government cloud service provider under our all-of-government Cloud Framework Agreement. So now government agencies can take advantage of the cost-saving and simplification benefits that follow when they choose Aotearoa’s own cloud.
