Virtualisation software provider VMware has announced that it is working with Verizon Wireless in the US and Telefonica in Europe on a solution that will make it easier for Android smartphone users to separate their personal and work lives through the use of separate profiles.
Telstra has announced a £500m+ (AU$800m) investment in cloud computing over the next five years to support what it says is a growing demand from Australian organisations for cloud services. The telco is rumoured to have invested AU$200m in cloud to date and this latest announcement will kick-off the construction of a new data centre, the modernisation of existing facilities, increased automation of utility computing services and the expansion of the telco’s range of enterprise applications, among other things. Construction of a new data centre in Melbourne is already underway.
Clouds continue to gather above the telco space with Orange Business Services together with Cisco, EMC and VMware, on Monday launching end-to-end cloud computing services for enterprises.
