Macquarie Hosting plans to design a complex managed hosting solution with, project management company, The Frame Group, to implement the project within the six week time frame requested by FBM, said Thompson.

Macquarie Hosting will also look after three separate DMZs; customer database; connection to Macquarie Telecom’s multi-gigabit internet gateway; and the monitoring and management of all equipment, including ongoing patching of the operating and security systems.
