How it works

Telstra Cloud Connector offers an integrated networking solution to connect to compatible cloud providers (AWS and Azure) with automated purchasing, authentication, provisioning, and management from your WAN (Telstra IP network). This solution can only be used with Telstra’s carriage product (Next IP, IP VPN service initially) and with clouds purchased through Telstra. Cloud Connector can be used to connect to public cloud locations based in Sydney and Melbourne, and comes with high-availability and geo-redundancy inbuilt.

We also provide connectivity to Telstra Virtual Storage (TVS) and Telstra CSX.

Bandwidth Tiers

You can aggregate their bandwidth purchase to use across multiple clouds based in Melbourne and/or Sydney, however, the total allocated bandwidth cannot exceed the purchased Cloud Connector bandwidth.

We have bandwidth up to 10G.
