Telstra is launching a cloud management system for AWS, Azure and more public clouds through a partnership with California-based vendor RightScale.
The telco will launch its cloud management platform in Australia next month, allowing users to monitor applications and manage consumption across a range of public clouds.
RightScale supports Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Rackspace, IBM SoftLayer, Apache CloudStack and VMware vSphere.
“Over the last few years, Telstra has invested heavily to bring together our leading global network, cloud infrastructure and data centre capabilities with the world’s most popular public cloud platforms, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, IBM Softlayer and VMware vCloud Air." said Michelle Bendschneider, Telstra’s executive director, global products.
"By combining these clouds with the connection and security capabilities of Cloud Gateway and the management tools from this new platform, we can provide customers with the choice, control and confidence they need to truly embrace the cloud."
She added that with businesses increasingly using a combination of private and public cloud solutions, they needed help to manage hybrid environments, which made cloud management "an obvious next step" in Telstra’s multi-cloud strategy.
