Westpac is setting up a virtual private cloud on Microsoft Azure, which will become an infrastructure option in its hybrid platform-as-a-service or HPaaS. The bank’s director of cloud services Jacqui Visch told iTnews that the Azure virtual private cloud construct - which Microsoft officially calls ‘Virtual Network’ - isolates resources from Azure hosted in Sydney and Melbourne, exclusively for the bank’s use. “We haven’t finished that delivery so it’s not a live platform - it’s an in-development platform,” Visch said.The 'one bank' ambition The Azure deal provides new visibility into Westpac’s HPaaS project, which first surfaced back in September 2016.
