Customers can navigate their public cloud platforms from hyperscalers such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure alongside Telstra Private Cloud, built on Dell Technologies and VMWare software, which hosts customer data onshore in Australian data centres.
The Telstra Purple team can update, patch, and monitor 24/7 the Telstra Hybrid Cloud while organisations maintain control of their day-to-day virtual machine operations.
The Telstra Hybrid cloud is also available as a self-serve solution.
Telstra Purple head Chris Smith claims Telstra Hybrid Cloud would help deliver meaningful digital transformation for customers at pace and scale.
“Hybrid cloud isn’t a new concept. In fact, research shows more than 80% of organisations are already relying on it for their applications and workloads, but the reality of managing multiple clouds isn’t for everyone, with only 41% of respondents are ‘well prepared’ for their future cloud journey. Hybrid Cloud from Telstra Purple takes managing the complexity of multiple clouds away by offering it as a fully managed service.”
“Our customers can expect full control over the scalability and optimisation of their chosen cloud infrastructure via the Hybrid Cloud solution, and if they need additional support, the cloud experts at Telstra Purple can help,” Smith adds.
Telstra Purple says that in a hybrid cloud model, customers can retain their most sensitive and low-latency applications and workload in their private cloud while maximising the scalability of public cloud and its cost efficiencies for other workloads.
By integrating Telstra Hybrid Cloud with adaptive networks and security solutions, customers and employees get an application performance whether collaborating or transacting over a B2B interface.
Cloud-based digital transformation has allowed companies to continue working even as workforces have become disparate. Hybrid cloud environments play a key role in supporting hybrid working as organisations require flexibility, security and the ability to scale to meet changing employee needs.
“Cloud is a key enabler of digital transformation and a thriving digital economy as the nation bounces back in 2022,” Smith claims.
Available in early 2022, customers, industry sectors from supply chain, retail, government, agribusiness, financial services, mining and energy would likely benefit from the solution, Telstra Purple concludes.
