No Data Ever Leaves Australia

We are ASX-listed, and our sovereign cloud solutions are Australian owned and operated by security-cleared Australian citizens.

Hosting your data on AUCloud’s sovereign cloud means that your data will never cross the borders of Australia. This includes metadata, monitoring and analytics data, support data, and customer data.

Your data will only be subject to Australia’s laws. That’s not the case with global public cloud providers, that are subject to the laws of the country in which they are owned and operated. In other words, they can be compelled to access and share your data with the jurisdiction (e.g., country) in which they are owned.
