CenturyLink in pact with NEXTDC for data center in Australia

CenturyLink announced its data center in Australia.
The company will offer managed hybrid IT services comprises network, managed hosting services, colocation and cloud. The company has offered network services to more than 50 regional and multinational corporations in Australia since 2002.
CenturyLink plans to deploy its public cloud service within the country later this year. The company will be offering managed hosting and colocation services through NEXTDC’s network of five data centers in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra and Perth.
CenturyLink and Data-Center-as-a-Service provider NEXTDC announced its agreement to sell into each other’s data centers.
Gery Messer, managing director, Asia Pacific, at CenturyLink, said: “The extension of CenturyLink’s data center footprint into Australia signifies our commitment to serve growing customer demand for IT services in the Asia-Pacific region.”
Recently, CenturyLink announced its public cloud platform in Singapore, managed hosting services in China and Private Cloud service in all 58 of its global data centers.
“Our recent surveys have shown that many enterprises would like to reduce the number of IT services providers they work with, so we believe there will be strong demand by enterprise customers to be connected globally in Australia under a single contract,” said Stefanie Williams, analyst at 451 Research.
