Telstra to boost cloud services with four new data centres in Australia
Posted on 4-Dec-2012 08:27. | Tags Filed under: News.



Telstra has expanded its leading cloud computing services with the establishment of four new data centres in Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia and the Australian Capital Territory to cater for the evolving needs of its business, enterprise and government customers.

The new state-of-the-art facilities, which form part of Telstra’s $800 million commitment to cloud-based technologies, will bring hosting services closer to organisations across Australia by providing local sites for customers who rely on latency sensitive applications and those with data sovereignty requirements.

Together with existing centres in Sydney and Melbourne, the new facilities provide connectivity and integration into Telstra’s core network to meet customer needs. Sites in Western Australia, South Australia and the ACT are already completed and will begin hosting data in the coming months. The new facility in Victoria will come online in 2014.

Paul Geason, Group Managing Director, Telstra Enterprise and Government, said Telstra was committed to providing localised infrastructure to cater for the needs of its customers around the country.

“We continue to see tremendous growth in our cloud business with positive customer take up of the technology across a range of industries,” Mr Geason said.

“With many organisations moving into the cloud, the feedback has been clear – the option to use local data centres is important either because their applications are sensitive to latency or they require data to be hosted within their state.

“By adding a further four data centres across the country, which are all fully integrated within our Next IP and Next G networks, our customers will have even more cloud-based options located in Australia and under Australian laws”.

Telstra provides a complete portfolio of cloud services for organisations including infrastructure, security options, storage, applications and communications delivered across Australia's largest network.

The company’s cloud customers are monitored around the clock by more than 140 highly-skilled staff at the Telstra Managed Network Operations Centre. Telstra also operates a T4-certified Security Operations Centre to provide proactive network security for customers’ cloud networks, data, applications and devices.
