When you’re accessing and managing public and hybrid cloud environments, you’re presented with a range of network challenges. You need to consider the reliability and security issues of public internet – while managing multiple vendors, portals and contracts. At the same time, you need to aim for high levels of performance and operational efficiency.
By deploying different cloud platforms, you can enjoy a number of business benefits. The Cloud Gateway changes the traditional method of connecting clouds into your private network. Through its integration into Telstra’s IP VPN network, it makes your Telstra Cloud Services appear simply as just additional endpoints on your private network. You will be up and running within 5 days and have the simplicity to change connection configurations at whim through its online portal.
By bringing cloud and network together, Cloud Gateway gives you the tools to truly embrace rapid and dynamic test and learn environments. It also enables you to bring new products or services to market faster, through public and private clouds.

Telstra’s Cloud Gateway™ service is a simple way to access leading cloud platforms. It allows you to log in to a single console, where you can view and manage multiple cloud connections in one place.
Having all of your connections in one place makes it easier to understand the relationships between your Telstra private networks and your cloud services.
Whether you’re connecting to one or multiple cloud platforms – or adopting a hybrid cloud strategy – Cloud Gateway aims to offer a seamless, one-stop solution that you can scale as your workloads change and your business grows.
You can add Access Control List (ACL) for more control of your service, fine-tuning performance and network accessibility. Access Control List is an optional add-on feature in Cloud Gateway, which allows you to create a list of routing rules that can use to allow or deny traffic between your Telstra IP network service (IP VPN) and Cloud Gateway connection(s).
How Cloud Gateway™ works
There are four main aspects to using the Cloud Gateway service: purchasing a Cloud Gateway, adding a Cloud Gateway connection, configuring your connection and managing your Cloud Gateway. You must have a Telstra IP network connection established before purchasing a Cloud Gateway.
You can access the full user guide at the Cloud Gateway management console after you have purchased the solution, which walks you through each of these activities.
