The agreement will enable access to Metronode’s 10 data centres in seven cities, with Telstra customers able to order Metronode colocation services and place it on their Telstra Bill.
Metronode CEO David Yuile said the agreement provided Metronode significant national reach across all segments of the market as well as the opportunity to host Telstra’s private cloud solutions.
According to Yuile, the agreement with Telstra highlights Metronode’s carrier neutral market position.
“Customers are not constrained by traditional data centre engineering and don’t need to re-design their cloud infrastructure when they move their critical applications to Metronode’s next generation data centres.
“This agreement gives Telstra customers more choice to effectively deploy hybrid cloud solutions, using Telstra private cloud and colocation on Telstra’s network.”
Yuile said Metronode will add another data centre in Canberra to its capability in September and he said the company had a track record of 12-plus years of zero downtime, Tier III accreditation and ISO 27001:2013 certification with its data centres.
