TELUS announced the launch of the TELUS AgilIT Virtual Private Cloud, an innovative service that enables businesses to take full control of their cloud environment. The first of TELUS’ AgilIT cloud offerings, and unlike other cloud infrastructure services, TELUS’ Virtual Private Cloud service provides organizations of all sizes access to computing resources on-demand with a powerful, full-featured portal that enables 24×7 remote access to view and manage their cloud.
“TELUS has taken a quality-based approach to cloud computing by providing customers with secured, guaranteed capacity of computing power while maintaining the flexibility to create, change or suspend their computing jobs as required through a centralized view of their cloud infrastructure,” said Tony Krueck, vice-president of Business Products & Services at TELUS. “This allows businesses to respond with greater agility to market demands, develop new applications faster, and contain IT costs by subscribing to computing capacity only as needed.”
With TELUS AgilIT Virtual Private Cloud, organizations can migrate to the cloud without worries. The service offers the flexible, scalable, enterprise-class infrastructure businesses of any size need to succeed today and into the future – without the capital and maintenance expenses of building and supporting excessive IT infrastructure in-house. IT managers are in control of the scale and cost of the resources used, yet gain the flexibility to instantly adjust up or down as needed. Since TELUS takes care of managing the infrastructure, internal IT staff is relieved from many of the burdens of day-to-day management, enabling them to focus on more strategic tasks such as business innovation, applications and end-user productivity.
TELUS engineered its cloud service leveraging the next generation of commercial grade hardware and software technologies from leading providers including AMD, NetApp, VMware, and Xsigo. The chosen platforms underwent extensive evaluation and integration efforts to ensure the service delivers the security, performance, scalability and reliability required by businesses and organizations to implement the cloud with confidence while retaining the applications and data within Canada.
