Telstra launches new cloud solution, expands Amazon collaboration Featured

By

Telstra has released a new cloud solution - Cloud Gateway – which it says provides business with a secure connection to multiple cloud environments. Coinciding with the release, Telstra has also announced it is extending its cloud services range with the addition of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform.

Philip Jones, Executive Director, Global Products and Solutions at Telstra says Cloud Gateway provides “private and secure connectivity directly into multiple public cloud platforms”.

“The innovative one-to-many ‘gateway’ model connects an IP network service to the cloud with data carriage, cross connect in the hosting data centre, configuration and support. This means organisations can simply and securely access their chosen cloud platform from around the world, with increased application performance via Telstra’s IP network.”

Initially Cloud Gateway will offer customers around the world connectivity to AWS and IBM SoftLayer, while Telstra says Australian customers can also connect to Microsoft Azure, Office365 and VMware vCloud Air – “with more infrastructure and SaaS platforms to join over time”.

Cloud Gateway will be available from June.

According to Jones, Cloud Gateway, combined with Telstra’s wide range of best of breed cloud environments, aims to help customers take full advantage of the ways cloud-based workloads can improve agility, reduce costs and support innovation when they reside in fit-for-purpose cloud architectures.

“Most organisations don’t realise the full value of cloud out of a single service. Instead, our customers are investing in sophisticated hybrid cloud environments, which come with their own range of fragmented networking challenges.

“include managing multiple vendors, portals and contracts, while trying to maintain a high level of security, performance and operational efficiency. We believe that just because these solutions are sophisticated, doesn’t mean that they should also be complex. Cloud Gateway is Telstra’s simple way to connect multiple clouds, and create hybrid environments.

“Telstra is very well positioned to help customers with hybrid and multi-cloud strategies, as we bring the cloud and the network together. The network is the fundamental piece of the puzzle that helps provide a secure and reliable application experience.

“Having a single touchpoint also helps reduce IT complexity, enabling our customers to maximise the benefits of investing in cloud.”

AWS Australia and New Zealand Head of Channels and Alliances, Stefan Jansen, said; “We are very excited to expand our relationship with Telstra in delivering an integrated AWS platform experience to customers of all sizes. By combining the experience of Telstra and AWS, customers will benefit from our focus on providing a wide range of AWS cloud-based features and services to support unprecedented agility and innovation in Australia and internationally.”

“With more global cloud options available than ever before, our customers want choice, control and confidence. With the introduction of Cloud Gateway, Telstra can offer our customers the many commercial benefits of simplifying, connecting and managing their multi-cloud environments.”
