About Us

Caznet provides a range of Data Centre, Cloud, Hosting and Network Services to keep your employees connected to your business systems, each other and your customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

We are an Adelaide based company with over 13 years experience in delivery of highly available hosting and cloud services. We use only the best in hardware, software and carriers to provide a high quality and secure service that our clients can rely on. We are a proudly South Australian owned and operated company with a passion for Business IT and customer service.

We’re local – just like you!

The team at Caznet just loves South Australia. We’re passionate about local business and as much as possible we source all of our supplies and services from local South Aussie businesses who share our view! If you’re dealing with us, you know you’ve put your trust in a proud Adelaide company, our office (and your Data!) is just around the corner, SA laws govern our operations and you can always just drop in on our office if you need to (we encourage it!).

Small Business? We get it!

For most of us (even the biggest of us), we’re nothing more than an account number to the big players in Data Centre, Cloud, Internet and Network Services. This rings true for us just as much as it does for you. But good business is about relationships and knowing each other. There’s no client too small or too big as far as we’re concerned, and we promise, you’ll always be more than an account number to us!

We know all about the needs and challenges of Small to Medium Business, because we live and breathe it ourselves every single day.

Where did we come from?

Our history is a bit of a patch work. We started out in 2002 as a one man show providing basic web hosting to a few local companies. As time went on, we grew our service offering to include Managed Services (IT Management and Helpdesk) and eventually into Software Development. Our software inevitably took us towards Cloud Software and Software as a Service at which point we started investing heavily into the infrastructure and systems we were using to host those products for our clients.

Finally we decided to  focus exclusively on what we love and what we’re good at – highly available and secure hosting and network services. It was a long journey in which we more or less circled back to where we came from, but we got there in the end.
