Telstra Cloud receives tick of approval from Cisco

Telco’s IaaS offering received Cisco powered IaaS Cloud certification

Telstra's infrastructure as a service (IaaS) Cloud has received certification from Cisco.

“For customers, this means Telstra’s infrastructure as a service Cloud is optimised to work with a security fabric which protects a customer’s IT and production environment from security breaches arising from threats such as those introduced through viruses and malware as well as distributed denial of service attacks,” general manager of Telstra Cloud Computing, Mark Pratley, said.

Pratley said in a statement that the telco’s IaaS Cloud certification underpins an $800 million investment in its Cloud computing program over the next few years.

The certification also means that Cisco can sell Telstra’s Cloud services. Director of the Telstra Business for Cisco Australia, Ben Dawson, said in a statement that the Telstra and Cisco alliance enables the telco to deliver an end-to-end service to its customers and would help customers fasten the adoption of new business solutions.

In August last year, Telstra’s public Cloud offering was certified by Red Hat and became one of seven Red Hat Cloud partners.
