Telstra seals deal with Metronode for business customers Featured


Telstra business customers will be able to access services at colocation services provider Metronode’s data centres across Australia under a new agreement signed between the two companies.

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.

“Metronode’s high-density, cloud-ready facilities are specifically designed and built to effectively and efficiently house today’s and tomorrow’s private cloud demands.

“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.
