Telstra today announced new cloud infrastructure services in the United States (US), expanding on its offerings.
It services are already available in the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia.
With the US expansion, Telstra is strengthening its global virtual private cloud solution for multinational customers.
Martin Bishop, Telstra Global Head of Network Applications and Services, said the US extension, which will be located on the East Coast, was an important milestone in Telstra's on-going strategy to provide cloud infrastructure services to support business growth initiatives.
"The new US node brings our total cloud presence up to seven distinct locations throughout the United States, Europe and Asia Pacific and will enable customers operating across multiple geographic locations, including the US, to quickly and efficiently realise the benefits of enterprise cloud services on their global operations," he said.
"When it comes to IT projects, we are finding that customers are increasingly opting for cloud-based services and with this expansion we are even better equipped to serve organisations with operations in the US - be it their long-term head-quarters or a new market they are expanding into.
"On top of this, Telstra Cloud Infrastructure customers can rest assured that their applications are delivered over one of the world's most extensive telecommunications networks that extends access to over 2,000 Points-of-Presence (PoPs).
Earlier this year, Telstra also announced that it would be the first globally to launch Cisco Cloud Services based on Cisco's InterCloud platform in Australia by the end of 2014.
