Born in an Adelaide warehouse back in 1999, Hostworks like any great digital startup was formed by a small entrepreneurial team, with a big vision.
Today this vision still holds strong. From an initial team of 4 founding fathers to an organisation of close to 100 staff today. Hostworks is one of Australia’s leading local digital and cloud solutions provider. We don’t have copious quantities of clients. We like it this way. Those that we do service, we consider valued partners. They know each of us by name and our staff are an extension of their organisation.
Here at Hostworks we don’t believe that technology changes the world. People do. We take a more people focused approach to everything that we do. Its in our DNA. We like to think of ourselves as one big family. And we mean it. Our secret weapon is our people.
It is our MISSION to take care of our customers’ businesses as if they were our own, ensuring they take centre stage in a world where the connection with their customers must never break. We bring together the best and brightest minds to imagine, create and deliver innovative digital solutions to inspire tomorrow. We believe that only when people, hardware and software work as one, can compelling customer experiences be delivered in the digital age.
Our platform and technology toolsets are designed to make sure they fit a wide array of business needs — the infrastructure, operating system, database support, applications and services. We get it. We understand that environmental components are crucial for business success. Our teams’ passion, agility and flexibility ensure this success.
Our range of tailored products and services are supported by ISO accreditation and information security management certification — enabling companies can present, protect and backup their data however they like.
