Skytap extends global footprint with new Singapore data centre

Zafar Anjum | Jan. 28, 2014
To Meet Enterprise Customer Demand, Skytap’s Global Reach Now Includes Asia Pacific

Skytap today has recently introduced its first international data centre located in Singapore and serving customers across the Asia Pacific (APAC) region - including those in Australia, Hong Kong and China.

Skytap is the leading provider of cloud-based development and test environments to the enterprise.

The Singapore data centre is the company's third data centre, in addition to two existing US-based data centres (US-East and US-West).

Singapore is quickly becoming one of the hottest data centre hubs in the APAC market, with tech giants including Amazon Web Services, IBM and Salesforce.com adding data centres to the region over the last few years. As a result of this recent growth, the country now accounts for roughly half of South East Asia's data centre capacity, according to the Singapore Economic Development Board.

"Our newest data centre location will help Skytap support the rapid growth we're experiencing within the global enterprise technology market, while at the same time meeting the specific demands of our customers looking to develop and test their critical business applications in the APAC region," said Brian White, vice president of products at Skytap. "International expansion into the Singapore market supports software development teams with the speed and latency they need to fast-track delivery within the region, as well as optimize collaboration amongst their globally dispersed teams."

Skytap's SaaS solution provides software development and test teams with the tools and resources to build, test and release better software faster.
