CenturyLink is now offering the CenturyLink Cloud in Australia.
The move allows businesses in Australia to turn to a single trusted provider for public and private cloud infrastructure, managed services, colocation, network connectivity and support for advanced hybrid solutions. The Sydney cloud node joins the company's other available cloud locations in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany and Singapore.
"We're seeing increased customer demand for [hybrid] IT services in Australia [so we hope that] launching the CenturyLink Cloud node in Australia signals our strong commitment to this key growth market," said Gery Messer, CenturyLink managing director, Asia Pacific.
The Australia cloud node is one of several recent cloud advancements for CenturyLink. In early March, the CenturyLink Development Center opened in St. Louis with a focus on building cloud-based managed services that help drive increased value for businesses. In January, the company launched Relational Database (DB) Service, a MySQL-compatible database-as-a-service designed to meet application developers' rapid software requirements and drive more agile IT.
