Telstra is the biggest provider of cloud hosting in Australia, and has long been considered one of the most secure, reliable, and secure providers.
That’s been for quite some time now, and the telco has made a big push into the web hosting market with its new Bumblebee platform, which lets users share files across their network.
But in recent weeks, Telstra has also quietly announced it’s looking to move away from hosting the likes of Yahoo and Google.
This will likely happen in the coming months, with Telstra CEO John Stanton telling a Senate Estimates hearing that the telcos are moving towards using a new technology called the cloud storage service BumbleBee.
BumbleBee is a service that provides a solution for storing and managing web content that’s hosted on the cloud, such as images, videos, music, documents and other media.
It can also help users manage content in their own datacentres, which can include data centers or on-premises servers.
This allows them to move data across the network in a more secure way.
The telco said it was “committed” to using Bumblebees technology, and that it was now ready to deploy it to Telstra.
But what is Bumble Bee?
Telstra says Bumble Bees are “a new, flexible, and scalable way to deliver secure cloud hosting solutions to Telco customers”.
“In addition to providing a seamless, cost-effective solution, Bumbleberes solution enables Telstra customers to benefit from increased security and scalability of their data and applications,” Telstra said in a statement.
Telstra’s cloud storage plans aren’t new, but BumbleBeans offer more flexibility.
“The Bumble Beets platform can be used with any Telstra service, including data centres, on-demand or fixed-access datacentre and on-site services,” Telstar said.
Telstra said that it is working with Bumblebean on a “new” BumbleBerry service, which will offer the same security and efficiency as the current Bumblebeans, but with the ability to store media as well as other files.
“In addition, Bumbie is designed to allow users to seamlessly share their data with third-party services and cloud providers,” Telspire said.
This means that Telstra could potentially take the next step in its cloud hosting plans, which would allow customers to move their content to BumbleClouds, which Telstra will roll out to Telstar customers in the future.
Bumblebees cloud storage services could also offer a much better way of securing the web.
The Bumbleclouds are “designed to ensure users can securely share files with other users and other content providers”, Telstra added.
This is a huge change for Telstra, which had long been the main provider of web hosting for Telcom customers, with its own storage service in place.
BumbleBoo’s cloud service has been around since 2007, and Telstar says that the company “is committed to providing reliable, secure, and affordable cloud hosting for our customers”.
“This new solution will provide Telstra with the flexibility to build the future of its services and our customers,” Telslub said.
“This solution will allow us to continue to grow our business and expand our customers.”
Telstra’s new cloud hosting plan is a step in the right direction, but not a major one.
The company needs to ensure that its cloud services are secure, but the move isn’t likely to be immediate.
Telstv’s cloud is also a huge headache for the telstra.
According to data from CloudWatch, Telstar’s cloud hosting business has seen losses of more than $2 billion since its inception.
That is far from ideal for the Telstra telco, but it’s a problem that is likely to get worse as the telstar network expands.
The new Bumbee cloud hosting solution is a big step forward for Telstvv, but we’re not sure what the big leap is for TelstaB.
