Online property listing group realestate.com.au has outsourced application and infrastructure monitoring to hosting specialist Hostworks in a three-year deal announced today.

From its own network operations centre, Hostworks will provide monitoring and initial support of around 200 Web servers located in realestate.com.au's data centres, Hostworks said in a statement sent to the Australian Stock Exchange this morning.

Realestate.com.au operates three data centres in Melbourne, and one in London.

In the statement, the property group's chief information officer Ms Chris Vulovic said up until now the work had been done in-house. "Previously this was done by our own staff equipped with pagers," she said.

"But we have expanded overseas and now have customers in the UK, so we are a truly global operation. If there is a minor issue, I don't want a page waking my staff at 3am."

The statement said Hostworks would start providing the 24x7 monitoring service from September this year. "This three-year contract follows an initial engagement in which Hostworks provided realestate.com.au with technologies to deliver online," it said.

Today's move is the latest in a series of high-profile hosting wins for Hostworks, which now houses many of Australia's most popular Web sites, including News Interactive, ninemsn, Seek, Sensis, Ticketek and Wotif.com.
