This milestone means Telefónica is the only telecommunications provider of public and private Cloud based on OpenStack in Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Argentina, USA and Peru, combined with the largest presence in the whole Latin American market. Telefónica Open Cloud stands as the first multi-national OpenStack Cloud platform in the region.

Telefónica Open Cloud provides all the resources that corporate customers need in the development and operation of their digital Business models, and for projects that require additional IT resource capacity in a pay-per-use model.  Open Cloud is the IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and PaaS (Platform as a Service) service that allows the customers to have these utilities in a more flexible, reliable, scalable, secure and profitable way versus other public Cloud services.
