NEXTDC TEAMS UP WITH CENTURYLINK

NEXTDC Limited (ASX:NXT) has partnered with CenturyLink Inc. to deliver the US-based company's full suite of IT services to Australian businesses.

CenturyLink has provided network services to more than 50 regional and multinational corporations in Australia since 2002.

The agreement will allow the company to offer managed hosting and colocation services through NEXTDC's network of data centres in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Perth.

NEXTDC CEO Craig Scroggie says the deal will provide invaluable resources for Australian businesses.

"NEXTDC's agreement with CenturyLink continues the trend of the world's top IT providers utilising NEXTDC's national data centre network to provide services," Scroggie says.

"CenturyLink is an important new member of our ecosystem of carriers, cloud and IT service providers, and its presence will essentially open up a world of new possibilities for Australian organisations on their journey to a hybrid cloud model."

CenturyLink and NEXTDC can sell into each other's data centres, enabling Australian businesses to expand their international reach, while giving global customers a physical presence in Australia.

CenturyLink Asia Pacific managing director Gery Messer says the new take on outsourcing will allow the company to tap into growing demand in the region.

"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," Messer says.

"The extension of CenturyLink's data centre footprint into Australia signifies our commitment to serve growing customer demand for IT services in the Asia Pacific region."

The announcement follows CenturyLink's recent launch of its public cloud platform in Singapore and the expansion of managed hosting services in China.

The company plans to deploy its public cloud service in Australia later this year.
