Telstra Global today announced the expansion of its ‘Connected Colocation’ capability and coverage in response to growing customer demand for robust and high performance cloud solutions world-wide. This comes at the same time as the integration and expansion of data centres across six locations in Asia, Australia and North America.

Telstra Global’s Head of Network Application and Services Portfolio Martin Bishop said the expanded capabilities and coverage was the company’s next step in providing multinational companies with access to powerful new connectivity and data centre solutions under a single integrated service-level agreement.

Telstra Global today detailed the following:

• Expansion of the Sydney (Broadway) data centre – 155 new racks of medium and high-density capacity in the heart of Sydney’s Central Business District
• North American data centre coverage through data centre space in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and San Jose;
• Extended Asia Pacific data centre coverage via a new Tokyo facility; and,
• Availability of low latency network connectivity services from its Singapore data centre.

“These capabilities will meet the rapidly growing demand for integrated network and cloud services of our media and financial organisations. The expanded offering showcases a level of innovation that is designed to serve our customers seeking the flexibility of cloud computing solutions for their businesses,” Mr Bishop said.

“Our extended footprint of data centres is connected to Telstra Global’s already extensive telecommunications network, offering advanced solutions and consistency regardless of location that is critical to many of today’s business applications.”

Telstra Global’s ‘Connected Colocation’ solution is now offered from 18 data centres worldwide with an extensive range of network connectivity options which extend to over 1,400 Points of Presence (PoPs) in more than 230 countries and territories.

In June, Telstra also announced the extension of its global cloud infrastructure platform in Hong Kong, Singapore and the United Kingdom as part of an A$800 million investment in cloud computing services announced in 2011.
