Keep up with the new speed of business.

Cloud migration is surging forward, but there’s a disconnect; Mission-critical workloads in the cloud are less than 17% and only expected to reach 20% by 2022*, suggesting some business leaders remain sceptical about moving strategic and sensitive workloads to the cloud.

Private cloud balances the power of cloud with the peace of mind, control, visibility, and predictability that comes with your own IT environment.

CloudMetro is Australia’s next-generation private cloud. It’s ultra-secure and purpose-built for highly regulated industries, such as Financial Services, Insurance, Healthcare, and Not for Profit.

When IT performance and data protection are paramount, we give you total control of your IT environment from structure to security, cost to compliance.

Compliance without compromise.

Keep your business reputation sound with highly available data for regulated industries and where data is a key competitive asset.


• PCI compliance – meet governance and compliance needs
• 27001 certification – swap risk for peace of mind
• APRA prudential guidelines – free up time, talent, and budgets
• GDPR aligned – best practice customer data management
• Annual certification audits – stay ahead of the pack.

Fast, secure data access to thrive, innovate and grow.

Built-in data security

Get full data security and privacy from day one on the secure CloudMetro platform with data confidentiality, integrity and availability features baked in—like data encrypted at rest, 24/7 biometric security and data centre integrity, IDS/IPS, file integrity monitoring, vulnerability and pen testing, and DDOS protection.

99.999% uptime for guaranteed business continuity

Stop operational interruptions and enjoy one of the market’s highest uptimes with active clustering across two physical locations and data held in multiple Australian data centres. Up your workload availability with real-time data synchronisation and total data sovereignty.

100% data integrity

Immutable storage for data that’s fixed, unchangeable and can never be deleted – vital to meet recoverable data needs, protect backups from new ransomware infections, and guarantee recovery from attack.

Fast-evolving customer environments require complex solutions, with apps often running across on-premise, multi-cloud and the edge. Make Azure an extension of your existing network and deliver your apps to end users at a global scale. Develop agile new solutions for customers without compromising on security.

“Working with Harbour was a positive experience from the outset. Our early engagements with the team showed they were comprehensive, knowledgeable and proficient. We were particularly impressed with the way the Harbour team highlighted issues within our own environment that we were not even aware of. As we progressed through the process of migrating our on premise infrastructure to the Harbour cloud, the team completely took ownership of the process and left us with much less to do than we had anticipated.” Scott Chapman, IT Manager, AAM Group
