- Pact will provide customers with seamless access to data centre services
SINGAPORE’S 1-Net has announced strategic partnerships with Cyber CSF in Indonesia and TCC Technology (TCCT) in Thailand to provide customers with seamless access to data centre services as they look into expansion in Asia.
The agreement will see 1-Net, Cyber CSF and TCCT collaborating on key operations to create a heterogeneous network of data centres, 1-Net said in a statement.
Customers of 1-Net, Cyber CSF and TCCT will now have access to a comprehensive portfolio of data centre services, cloud, network and security solutions through this combined data centre footprint across Asia, the company said.
This single customer interface across different markets with a uniform service level agreement (SLA) will improve efficiency and make it easy for customers to expand their data centres in the region, it claimed.
1-Net, a MediaCorp enterprise, currently manages telco-class carrier-neutral Internet data centres, along with domestic and international connectivity, managed services and media delivery services.
“We are happy to partner with the Asia’s key data centre providers to facilitate expansion for businesses across Asia,” said its managing director Wong Ka Vin.
“Together with Cyber CSF and TCCT, we are working toward sharing a common product management platform that will allow us to offer our services in a harmonised manner,” he added.
Customers will now be able to procure data centre space and services from 1-Net in Singapore and have options to expand to TCCT’s three data centres located in Thailand and Cyber CSF’s data centre in Jakarta.
This partnership complements 1-Net’s recently announced 1-Net North, a 200,000 sq ft data centre which is expected to be operational in the last quarter of 2015.
With increasing digitalisation, the demand for data centre services will grow, 1-Net said in its statement.
“TCCT and 1-Net have worked as partners for more than 10 years, collaborating on various projects, done joint research and development (R&D), and shared knowledge on best-practices and technology,” said TCC Technology executive director Kosit Suksingha.
“We are committed to serving market demand and creating business value for customers. Today, we are proud to officially announce that our best-in-class data centres have become one and [can be used] by our customers throughout Asia Pacific,” he added.
According to DCD Intelligence (DCDi), the business intelligence division of DatacenterDynamics, the ‘white’ space or raised floor of data centres in Asia Pacific will grow at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 9.1% from 2012 to 2015 to 98.1 million sq ft.
“We’re glad to be part of this initiative, which seek to achieve consistent customer experience across a regional data centre footprint,” said Cyber CSF president director Daniel W. Korompis.
“With our team of technical experts, we will leverage on the best practices to deliver optimal operations across the three countries,” he added.
