CenturyLink Stomps Data Centre Footprint Into Australia

CenturyLink now offers its hybrid IT services to regional multinational companies in Austrlalia with an extension of its data centre operations in the country through an agreement with independent Data-Centre-as-a-Service provider NEXTDC.

Through the agreement, CenturyLink and NEXTDC can sell into each other’s data centres.

Public cloud service

CenturyLink has had a presence in Australia since 2002, and is planning to deploy its public cloud service in the country later in 2015.

CenturyLink’s Asia Pacific manager said that the move shows the company’s commitment to serving customers in the region.

Gery Messer said: “We are eager to offer our managed hybrid IT services and consistent IT experience to multinational corporations in Australia, one of the most connected countries in the world.”

In March, TechWeekEurope spoke to CenturyLink at Europe’s Cloud Expo 2015 regarding the firm’s EUropean cloud plans. You can watch the video below:
