Telstra extends cloud services to US

18 June 2014 |


Telstra Global has extended its cloud infrastructure services to the US.

The node, which will be located on the east coast of the US, is said to strengthen the company’s virtual private cloud solution.

It extends Telstra’s cloud presence to seven locations, including the UK, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia.

“When it comes to IT projects, we are finding that customers are increasingly opting for cloud-based services and with this expansion we are even better equipped to serve organisations with operations in the US – be it their long-term headquarters or a new market they are expanding into,” said Martin Bishop, head of network applications and services, Telstra Global.

“On top of this, Telstra Cloud Infrastructure customers can rest assured that their applications are delivered over one of the world’s most extensive telecommunications networks that extends access to over 1,900 Points-of-Presence (PoPs),” Bishop added.

In January, Telstra Global announced the launch of four PoPs in Europe and the US, in addition to a partnership with Infinera to upgrade capacity on its three cable systems.
