As part of its strategy to interconnect data centres in Asia, 1-Net has collaborated with Epsilon and KVH to launch an enhanced data centre connectivity network.
The enhanced network allows 1-Net's customers to connect 14 key data centers in Asia at either a 1G or 10G capacity, according to the Singapore ICT solutions provider. By doing so, customers would be able to operate, or "peer", between the data centers to facilitate the creation of new business models, enabling them to position themselves as partners or intermediaries that offer services to their partners.
Customers will also be able to experience low latency and availability of high bandwidth for transferring extremely large files with an interconnected data centre network, added 1-Net. This is important to organisations that don't tolerate latency such as financial services institutions, which require low latency connections to ensure high speeds in executing transactions.
According to Wong Ka Vin, managing director of 1-Net, it is hoped that the interconnected data centre network will provide its customers "greater flexibility, resiliency and cost reduction" as they look to expand their business operations in the region.
This collaboration builds on 1-Net's vision to create a high-speed Data Center Corridor through the interconnectivity of data centers in Asia, to enable businesses to access domestic and international markets more rapidly.
In November 2014, 1-Net announced a partnership with TCCT and UIH in Thailand to enable connectivity between Singapore and Thailand. Moving forward, 1-Net will establish more connectivity partnerships to interconnect the data centers in the region.
