To deliver a scalable, supported and consistent environment for enterprise cloud deployments
Australia-based telecommunications and information services company Telstra has partnered with open source offerings provider Red Hat to enable expanded choice for enterprise customers in the cloud.
Telstra joins Red Hat’s expanding cloud ecosystem as a Certified Cloud Provider to deliver a safe, scalable, supported and consistent environment for enterprise cloud deployments.
Telstra offers Red Hat Enterprise Linux as a guest operating system on its infrastructure cloud service.
Telstra executive director Philip Jones said Telstra has partnered with Red Hat as part of their hosting services programme for many years and to now be a Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider is a significant and exciting development for Telstra cloud computing.
"Offering Red Hat Enterprise Linux in our cloud computing environment offers our customers more choice, more flexibility and the opportunity to run more applications out of our cloud," Jones added.
Red Hat Cloud Business vice president and general manager Scott Crenshaw said many organisations across a wide range of industries that are using cloud capabilities have told them that Red Hat Enterprise Linux, among other Red Hat solutions, brings them a great value in cloud environments.
"To be one of the operating platforms available on the Telstra Cloud Computing service shows the demand for Red Hat Enterprise Linux in cloud deployments," Crenshaw added.
