+About Us

Created on the back of 60+ years experience

Oper8 Global is a privately owned Technology Solutions business established in April 2012 in Australia by IT, Data Centre and Telecommunications industry veterans Mike Andrea and Chris Goldstone.

The Oper8 Global Advisory Board was formed in early 2021 with Independent Chair, Bradley Sands, to assist in our global expansion and growth, including potential mergers and acquisitions.

Oper8 Global Limited was established in late 2019 in Oxford, UK, to expand the Oper8 brand outside Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.  Built on the long-term relationship of the multinational Management Team, which developed during global Edge data centre solutions and deployments, and the obvious need for specialist Solution Integrators in the Edge, Hybrid Cloud and HPC marketplace.

In 2021 Oper8 in Australia rebranded to align our multinational teams under the
Oper8 Global brand.
