Delivering Supreme Technology Solutions for over 27 years.

We’ve been around a while now. Here are some highlights.

1991:

Our Story begins over 27 years ago, in a very trendy peach and coral coloured office, back when boxy was in, and beige was cool.

It’s July, 1991 and SIlicon Systems is founded. We begin building and selling Intel 80286 PCs to Wellington businesses. The red, white and blue SIlicon logo starts making a name for itself and before we know it, we’re building hundreds of PCs a month. Its time to start getting a bit serious.

1995:

After 2 years refining and documenting our processes and procedures, Silicon becomes the first computer company in New Zealand to gain ISO9001 certification.

We receive a ministerial Scroll at the 1996 New Zealand Business Development Quality Awards, after adopting the Malcolm Baldridge Total Quality Management Philosophy. That philosophy is still fundamental to every aspect of our business today.

1999:

Silicon has forged a reputation for building the highest quality PC hardware available. We’re now building servers.

We’ve taken our relationship with Intel to the next level, becoming an Intel Premier Provider for New Zealand. Our locally built, globally supported range of servers goes dambusters – providing superior performance at almost haof the price of multi-national competitors.

2004:

Building on our growing server architecture expertise, we build and deliver the first blade servers in New Zealand to the  NZ Stock Exchange, and NZ Racing Board.

Blade server technology in the enterprise takes off, providing high density and high availability server resource for demanding applications.

2008:

Virtualisation has become mainstream and Silicon becomes a VMware Enterprise Partner.

With our expertise continually growing, Silicon establishes itself as a true one-stop-shop for virtual server environment provision and management.

2011:

Design and construction of our very own datacentre begins, ushering in a new era for Silicon as a cloud solutions provider.

Ever built a datacentre?  It’s no mean feat. A fastidious design process laid the foundation for doing it once and doing it right.

2013:


We flick the ‘on’ switch in our datacentre and launch CloudSuite, our range of IT Infrastructure services.

Our datacentre provides local, accessible and affordable infrastructure as a service to Wellington businesses who understand the power of a good relationship. we enjoy 99.9997% uptime over the next 4 years.

Today:

27 years into our journey, Silicon has established itself as a true end-to-end IT solutions provider, with a full range of cloud solutions, expertise, and managed services delivered to businesses large and small across New Zealand.

Our team are more passionate than ever about helping New Zealand businesses succeed with technology.

We’re looking forward to the next 27 years.
