“Telstra has partnered with Red Hat as part of our hosting services program for many years and to now be a Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider is a significant and exciting development for Telstra cloud computing,” said Telstra Executive Director, Philip Jones. “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.”
Telstra joins Red Hat’s expanding cloud ecosystem as a certified cloud provider making it the first Australian telecommunications provider to offer Red Hat Enterprise Linux in the cloud.
“We’ve spoken with organisations across a wide range of industries that are utilising cloud capabilities and they tell us that Red Hat Enterprise Linux, among other Red Hat solutions, brings them great value in cloud environments,” said Scott Crenshaw, vice president and general manager, Cloud Business at Red Hat. “We welcome Telstra to our Certified Cloud Provider program. 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.”
