Telstra's Network Applications and Services group registered revenue growth of 10.5 per cent in FY2012, increasing to $1.3 billion. The NAS group covers services such as videoconferencing, telepresence, managed data networks as well as enterprise security services.
Overall the telco's revenue grew 1.1 per cent to $25.4 billion.
"Cloud-based services and storage are growing in parallel with data usage," Telstra chairperson Catherine Livingstone told the telco's AGM today.
"Our ambition is to seamlessly deliver data to any device, anywhere on our network, anytime our customers want it," Livingstone said. Network applications and services, including cloud, has "significant potential" in Asia as well as Australia, Livingstone said.
Last year Telstra announced it would invest $800 million in cloud over five years and registered NAS revenue of $1.14 billion, 10.7 per cent growth over the previous year.
In June this year Telstra appointed David Burns to head its NAS group.

Staying Ahead of the Data Explosion
The total volume of data being processed and stored by businesses is rising exponentially. IDC has estimated that the size of the "digital universe" will increase 29 fold between 2010 and 2020. Data storage technology has undergone a steady increase in capacity, along with a steady decline in the cost per unit to store information. Unfortunately, data storage capacity is not keeping pace with data growth and necessitating greater intelligence in the storage infrastructure. Read more.
Endpoint Security and Virtualisation
Besides form factor, virtual systems are not really that different than physical systems. They both use the same operating systems and applications. They both present users with computing resources such as RAM and hard drives. Consequently, the ability to exploit vulnerabilities in a physical environment will present a significant threat to virtualised environments as well. This paper examines the different endpoint security methods for virtualised environments and presents how Endpoint Protection security provides optimal performance, protection and manageability.
