Telstra, Cisco partner for hybrid cloud products

Telstra expands cloud with investment Cisco platform

As Cisco Live gets under way in Melbourne, Telstra has announced a partnership with Cisco to provide hybrid cloud services.

Telstra said it will start selling the new Cisco cloud services by the end of this year. The services will help customers manage multiple applications across hybrid pubic cloud environments, the telco said.

In addition, Telstra announced that it will invest in Cisco Evolved Services Platform for its networking infrastructure.

“This world first partnership sees us move from being a provider of enterprise-grade cloud infrastructure and market-leading cloud solutions, to adding more value to our customers by helping them design the best cloud environment to suit their business," said Erez Yarkoni, executive director of cloud for Telstra Global Enterprise & Services.

“This first of a kind deployment, which recognizes the value to customers of an open, application centric approach to hybrid cloud, reinforces Telstra’s position as an innovative and pioneering leader in the global service provider industry,” said Rob Lloyd, Cisco president of development and sales.
