The team at Telstra are on cloud nine today, with the launch of VMware vCloud® Air™ for our Australian customers. First announced in 2014, new and existing Telstra VMware customers can today easily extend or move their on-premise IT infrastructure to a public cloud, which is perfect for managing enterprise applications, development and testing environments, as well as disaster recovery.
With the VMware vCloud Air Australian region deployed in Telstra’s data centre and integrated into Telstra’s Next IP® network, customers have the benefit of secure, high-speed connectivity for their hybrid computing environments. With this comes the control and agility necessary to deliver high performance and results, with the added peace of mind that your data is hosted in Telstra’s Australian data centres, delivered over the Telstra network.
We know that there’s no “one size fits all” answer for IT and it’s equally true of cloud environments. That’s why we keep adding to our cloud portfolio – to provide customers with the best range of cloud services from world-leading technology providers. In 2015 we’ve already shown great momentum in our cloud strategy, just last week announcing that Australian customers now have access to IBM SoftLayer.
To help make managing all these cloud environments as easy as possible, we’ve also introduced Cloud Direct Connect, which gives customers a dedicated connection from their private network, into their global cloud provider of choice – whether it be IBM SoftLayer, VMware vCloud Air, Telstra Cloud Infrastructure, Cisco Cloud Services, Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services. The Cloud Direct Connect™ solution traverses your wide area network, through the hosting data centre and up to your cloud environment. It also lets you choose from a range of bandwidth offerings, configuration and support.
We’re offering businesses the flexibility to select the right cloud; connect with a simple extension of their private network; and provide the end to end control to confidently deliver applications to employees and customers when, where and how they need it. Now you just have to come and talk to us about which workload goes in which cloud…
