Businesses around the world are looking to leverage hybrid and multi-cloud services as they continue to expand their digital presence. While the public cloud has often been regarded as the seamless way for transformation, regulatory issues, as well as new applications, require workloads and data to be used and stored better.
As such, hybrid and multi cloud services enable organizations to support the changing needs of their business and operations. Globally, the hybrid cloud market is valued at US$52 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow to US$145 billion in 2026, with the Asia Pacific region expected to grow at the fastest rate.
However, as convenient as the cost and efficiency benefits from the hybrid cloud and multi cloud promises, they may also find themselves faced with many daunting challenges when rolling out these cloud solutions because of technical complexities.
In the Asia Pacific, the exponential growth of data plus the speed to transformation with the demand for new applications are seeing organizations wanting a seamless rollout and implementation of hybrid and multi cloud services.
To cater to this, Keppel Data Centers (Keppel DC) has announced a collaboration with AsiaPac Technology, whereby Keppel DC’s clients can easily transform or enhance their existing infrastructure through AsiaPac to take full advantage of a secure hybrid multi-cloud framework from a variety of providers for greater agility and resiliency
The partnership aims to provide regional enterprises and multinational corporations with a holistic and seamless digital transformation offering, combining world-class data center colocation and managed cloud services. Keppel DC plans to develop sustainable, carrier-neutral, and network-dense edge data centers across the Asia Pacific and Europe, launching initially in Southeast Asia.
In addition, the partnership will offer unparalleled intra-Asia interconnectivity across Keppel DC’s data centers, leveraging the Bifrost Cable System, a multiple fiber pair, high-capacity submarine cable system that Keppel is developing with other partners, connecting Singapore directly to North America, with other planned systems in the pipeline.
Under the ambit of the connectivity platform in Keppel’s Vision 2030, the partnership forms a longer-term strategy to enhance Keppel’s value proposition to clients, by packaging the data center solution, stronger intra-Asia connectivity, and hybrid multi-cloud services, into an integrated, synergistic offering.
