Our Telstra Cloud Services customers get secure access to the online management console.

Create, remove and configure virtual servers, monitor usage and request extra services and products – all online.


View and manage your cloud solution

The management console gives you visibility and control of your virtual servers and networks.

View your virtual server usage, adjust resources to suit your business needs and request extra network and security services.


Visibility and control

Once you login to the management console, you'll instantly see a summary status of your virtual servers.

With just one click, you can automatically power on and off, as well as suspend and restart your virtual servers.

You also have full visibility of the number of CPU, RAM and storage associated with your individual virtual servers, their IP addresses, as well as backup and operating system configuration.

Want to control usage? The console has a reporting functionality that lets you see how many hours you've used during the month and compare it with your plan.


Add to your cloud solution

Add virtual servers to your cloud solution at any time. As part of the set up, specify each virtual server's configuration and unique descriptive name. Choose from a range of applications we can install for you.

There's a number of add-on resources that can be requested through the management console, including:

  • Data import
  • Firewalls
  • Load balancers
  • Telstra Next IP® network connection / Global IP VPN network connection
  • IPsec VPN
  • SMTP mail relay

Import your data to the cloud

Our data import service can be used to transfer large amounts of data onto your virtual servers.

Request the data import service through the management console, and we'll send you a secure storage device. Load data from your current network to the device and send it back to us.

We'll scan and connect your device to the cloud. You can then quickly and easily upload the data yourself.

Our data import service is only available to customers based in Australia
