The Sydney Opera House is one of the world’s busiest performing arts centers and Australia’s number one tourist destination. Each year, it attracts more than 8.2 million visitors on site and stages more than 2,000 performances attended by over 1.5 million people.
Since opening its doors in 1973, the Opera House has become the symbol of modern Australia and the country’s premier tourist destination, with an iconic national-identity value that Deloitte Access Economics has estimated at $4.6 billion.
On the Opera House’s 40th anniversary, it embarked on a Decade of Renewal, a series of projects to prepare the Opera House for future generations of artists, audiences, and visitors. Because renewal isn’t just about the building and the arts; it’s also about renewing technology and systems. This enabled the Opera House to engage VMtech and BlackBerry Cylance to modernize its IT server and network infrastructure, as well as information management, privacy, and cybersecurity.

Australian businesses have long been recognised as leaders in the adoption of cloud services and the migration of core infrastructure to cloud platforms.
Yet as ambitious ‘cloud-first’ programs are executed, performance and complexity issues have led many organisations to embrace the middle ground – a hybrid IT solution combining public cloud and on-premises infrastructure.
Fast-growing hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) platforms are increasingly being recognised as an ideal enabler for this strategy, with a software-based design that combines robust computing infrastructure with a high degree of centralisation, integration, flexibility, and analytics-based monitoring and manageability.
