The commercial model for GovDC is illustrated below:

GovDC - Commercial Model
  1. The GovDC team manages the contract with Metronode on behalf of the NSW Government and ensures that contracted service levels are met.
  2. NSW Government agencies which migrate their infrastructure into GovDC sign a memorandum of understanding for the kilowatt capacity required (minimum 4kW).
  3. Public bodies may engage third parties to assist in the migration process or to provide managed services.
  4. Public bodies may procure SaaS, PaaS or IaaS from third parties listed on the NSW Buy catalogue.
  5. Companies listed in the NSWBuy catalogue under specific GovDC sub-categories for SaaS/PaaS/IaaS are permitted to use the GovDC Service Provider Logo to co-brand their services as legitimate services within the GovDC Marketplace. Marketplace service providers installing equipment in GovDC sign a sub-licence for the kilowatt rack capacity they require (minimum 8kW).
  6. Service providers who sign the sub-licence for rack capacity (IaaS) can earn revenue from other service providers (SaaS/PaaS) if the end services are provided exclusively to public bodies.
