- Also, the number of companies who see themselves using outsourced cloud increases by 10 percent by 2015 (from 4 percent in 2013 to 14 percent), and grows nearly ten times by 2023 to 38 percent.
'Stairway to the Cloud' aided by new acquisitions
Guided by the above findings, Messer hopes to help companies in Singapore and in the region transition to the cloud without pain, and he calls this journey of transition 'Stairway to the Cloud'.
CenturyLink Technology Solutions is in a position to do this because one, it has a strong enterprise foundation-57 data centres with 100% SLA and 19 years of experience in cloud and managed hosting for enterprises.
Two, two relatively recent acquisitions-TIER 3 and appfog-make CenturyLink Technology Solutions very agile and attractive to the developer community, said David Rosengrave, Head of Business Development and Product Strategy, CenturyLink Technology Solutions, Asia Pacific.
AppFog (formerly PHP Fog) provides instant installation and N-tier scalable cloud deployment for PHP and other applications (one click installations of popular tools like Drupal and WordPress). The developer community loves this as in the past, deploying PHP and similar apps was a painful process, said Rosengrave.
In June 2013, CenturyLink Technology Solutions had acquired AppFog, which paved the way for the company to enter the platform as a service (PaaS) market.
In November last year, CenturyLink Technology Solutions acquired Tier 3, the Seattle-based infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform and advanced cloud management company.
These acquisitions have helped CenturyLink Technology Solutions to have a world class development centre in Seattle, USA where the company showcases its innovative capacities and talents, peopled with world class cloud innovators and leaders.
