Optus cloud goes PowerON

Optus has rebranded its cloud services as PowerON as part of a regional strategy by parent company SingTel. Additional cloud services have also been announced.

As part of a regional strategy, Optus has adopted the PowerON brand for its cloud services such as its virtual private data centre service launched as Optus Elevate but now dubbed Optus PowerON Compute. A regional PowerON Compute service is set to be announced in the second half of the year, allowing customers to move workloads between Australia and Singapore while continuing to manage the systems from a single portal.

"This is the next step in our regional cloud roadmap now that Optus Business is part of SingTel Group ICT. Customers can look forward to a seamless regional cloud offering that will make it easier to manage their cloud resources- that's one contract, one bill and one management portal, with access to multiple clouds across the region," said John Paitaridis, managing director of Optus Business.

Optus has also foreshadowed an enterprise cloud storage service, and a free cloud readiness for its customers.
