Telstra Global launches global cloud infrastructure services

Telstra Global has launched cloud infrastructure services from its data centres in Hong Kong, Singapore and the UK.

The services complement those already available in the company’s Australian data centres, and are expected to enable Telstra to deliver globally connected Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions.

“The extension of Telstra’s cloud infrastructure offering represents an on-going commitment to innovation and has been designed to provide customers with an exceptional experience by combining the flexibility of cloud computing along with the resilience of a world-class global network,” said Martijn Blanken, president and MD of Telstra Global.

Multi-national enterprise customers are expected to benefit from the ability to deploy applications consistently, deliver business processes and deploy offshore disaster recovery solutions worldwide, all under a unified service management unit.

“Our service is designed with customer experience at its core and provides optional disaster recovery and off-site back-up capabilities to combat security concerns,” Blanken said.

“We also provide a single service-level agreement across hosting infrastructure and network connectivity to help ensure optimal performance of customer applications within the data centre and assist in securing transmission of data across the wide-area network (WAN).”

The announcement today forms part of the company’s AU$800 million investment in cloud computing which Telstra revealed in 2011.
