Cloud-calibre, from the ground up.

Revera is New Zealand's cloud services leader.

How did we get here?

Our success is built on 15 years of managing critical data and systems for New Zealand's most important organisations.   

In 2002 we got down to work with big iron - mainly storage systems for banks and government.

We got very good with enterprise data and storage networks, and parlayed these skills into data centres.

Then we added high-speed networks and a clever provisioning platform, called Virtual Data Centre (VDC), to our expanding fleet of New Zealand data centres.

Clients took to our on-demand computing infrastructure and services. Their logic was simple: why manhandle physical IT when a simple contract takes care of service delivery.        

Today, our platforms and services operate as the Revera Homeland Cloud.

It's the place where clients manage their systems and cloud services for the new era of hyper-connected business.
