Salesforce using AWS data centres to serve Australian enterprises



Company banks on long-established relationship with AWS which in July resulted in the launch of data centre services in Canada.

The world’s fifth largest public cloud provider Salesforce has turned to the world’s first largest public cloud operator AWS to expand its business in Australia.

As part of its strategic partnership with AWS, originally announced in March, customers in Australia can access the Salesforce Customer Success Platform, including Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, Salesforce Platform, Community Cloud, Analytics Cloud, Financial Services Cloud and more.

Salesforce has signed up to use the AWS Sydney Region with icare and Telstra being the first Australian Salesforce customers to access the Salesforce Customer Success Platform on the AWS Sydney Region.

Randy Kern, EVP Infrastructure Engineering and Chief Infrastructure Officer, Salesforce, said: “Salesforce’s partnership with AWS allows us to bring new infrastructure online more quickly and efficiently with one of the most trusted, reliable and resilient public clouds.

“As the global leader in CRM, we remain focused on enabling companies in Australia and around the world to use Salesforce to transform every customer experience.”

Paul Migliorini, Managing Director, Amazon Web Services Australia and New Zealand, said: “The most innovative and successful Australian enterprises have been leveraging the combined capabilities of the AWS and Salesforce platforms to transform their businesses for many years.

“The availability of Salesforce’s Customer Success Platform on the AWS Sydney Region is a very significant milestone that will help Australian customers to fully leverage the scale, security and reliability of the AWS Cloud.”
