SingTel Launches Cloud Service in Hong Kong

Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel) has launched its "PowerON" cloud computing service from a state-of-the-art data center in Hong Kong. PowerON Compute is powered by VMWare. As with the PowerON Compute cloud services in Singapore and Australia, PowerON Compute Hong Kong is a hybrid enterprise-class cloud service which provides computing resources that can be accessed by either a public internet connection or through a private secured network. The launch of PowerON Compute Hong Kong is part of SingTel’s initiative to roll out a federated cloud network linking Singapore, Australia and Hong Kong in the third quarter of 2012. With data centres in Singapore, Australia and Hong Kong, the federated cloud network will enlarge SingTel’s cloud footprint in Asia Pacific. This will offer customers a greater choice of locations from which to host their data so that they can be located closer to their regional operations.
