Courts top end of town

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Telstra is spending over AU$800 million in cloud computing over the next five years to meet emerging demand in the enterprise space.

The carrier claims use of its infrastructure cloud-based services has increased by 50 percent this year, while take-up of voice and video services hosted in the cloud is up 80 percent, delivering more than 100,000 IP telephony services.

Recent Telstra cloud computing client wins include Australian Vintage Limited, The Salvation Army Employment Plus, Oz Minerals, Tabcorp, and Tristar Medical Group.

The cloud service upswing follows Telstra’s 12 month campaign to win over corporate Australia with its cloud based services.

Telstra CEO David Thodey said “there is no one solution that fits all with cloud computing. Telstra is investing to develop and deliver cloud computing solutions that can meet the individual needs of Australian businesses and governments.”

The carrier has partnered with vendors Cisco, VMware and its integration partner Accenture, to build the next phase of its integrated cloud platform. It will also work with technology partners such as Microsoft to deliver bespoke cloud services for organizations.

The $800 million investment will include the creation of a new Australian data centre, upgrading existing Telstra data centres, expanding the range of enterprise applications, developing a new integrated online account management portal and increased automation of utility computing services. ®
