Public and private cloud reached via a management portal
Canadian service provider Telus has introduced a range of cloud-based business suites to include Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) options. These include public and private cloud and Canada’s first hybrid cloud service (a mixture of both). This hybrid offering will use Cisco’s Cloud Architecture for the Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform.
The Telus cloud portfolio includes Telus Public Cloud, which provides compute and storage infrastructure for non-critical workloads. It also boasts Telus Private Cloud, which offers infrastructure for mission-critical applications with additional security or compliance needs.
Telus Hybrid Cloud combines public and private cloud services traits all managed via an easily configured management portal that customers can use to tailor services to their needs.
Getting onto the Canadian cloud safely just got easier
Canada’s cloud market is growing rapidly
Telus hopes the new services will earn it a significant percentage of Canada’s expanding cloud market. IDC Canada has recently estimated that Canadian businesses will spend more than CAN$1.9bn on cloud deployments between now and 2019.
“Canadian businesses are in the midst of a digital revolution and IT leaders are being asked to manage increasingly complex environments amidst aging infrastructure and limited resources,” said Tom Jolly, vice president of Managed IT and Cloud Services, Telus . “The innovation of our cloud portfolio, paired with our deep expertise in network connectivity, security, managed IT, and cloud advisory services, allows us to work closely with our customers to understand their needs and build a flexible hybrid IT model that optimizes their investments and drives agility in their business.”
The public and private cloud services are available now. Full commercial availability of the hybrid cloud service will happen in the first quarter of 2016.
