Rio Tinto strengthens IT infrastructure with Cirrus contract

Rio Tinto has awarded an IT infrastructure contract to Cirrus Networks that gives the technology solutions provider the opportunity to bid for infrastructure services against other pre-qualified providers.

The contract applies to the Asia Pacific West IT vendor ecosphere consultancy panel. It will span three years, with the option to extend for two additional years.

Cirrus managing director Matt Sullivan said the company was excited at the opportunity to collaborate with such a high-quality global organisation.

“We are proud that we have been able to demonstrate our capability in delivering high value solutions to the resources sector and look forward to showcasing these to Rio Tinto over the coming years,” Sullivan said.

Cirrus is a provider of a wide range of IT solutions including data centre and cloud, end user computing, storage, data management and project management services.

The company has grown an extensive base of blue-chip clients across the industry sector.

Rio Tinto also contracted Empired to provide services across its existing and newly defined service pillars this month.

Empired’s agreement with Rio Tinto has an initial three-year term, plus two one-year options for the mining company to extend the relationship.
