Aussie telco AAPT has teamed up with Oracle to deploy Solaris as a service for its business customers.

AAPT's partnership with the enterprise software and infrastructure giant, Oracle, will pitch its ability to host mission-critical infrastructure in the cloud to medium to large-sized businesses, according to Peter Fuller, VP of Systems for Oracle Australia/New Zealand.

"Through AAPT's supply of this service, companies are able to run mission-critical applications on arguably the world's number one enterprise OS, Oracle Solaris, using Oracle's industry-leading Sun servers," Fuller said today in a statement.

AAPT's new CEO, David Yuile, said AAPT had purchased kit from Oracle in May 2010 and that it now had a well-trained infrastructure team to deal with back-office support for customers.

"AAPT has now established a highly skilled internal infrastructure team and an agile virtual service delivery platform, allowing us to market external IT services to our customers," Yuile said.

AAPT's Solaris-as-a-service offering joins its other products in the cloud portfolio, including Google Apps.
