Conversant Solutions today (12 April 2016) announced that it has partnered Alibaba Cloud in a bid to improve customer experience and penetrate markets across the Southeast Asian region.
The two companies aim to do so by offering joint solutions comprising Alibaba Cloud's cloud computing resources and Conversant SwiftServe CDN (content delivery network) services to regional customers outside of China.
According to a joint press statement, this partnership is instrumental in reducing both Alibaba Cloud's and Conversant's overall cost of adding network capacity to support increased network demands from customers. For example, both companies can provide their customers with the capacity and agility required to handle large online events across Southeast Asia.
"OTT video service providers, e-commerce customers and startup companies are increasingly seeing the ability to provide their subscribers with a high-quality experience on any device, anywhere as a core business requirement," said Cheong Kong Wai, CEO and Founder of Conversant.
" We are seeing more demand from all our customers requiring a full suite of services that include CDN, Digital Media Enablement and Cloud Computing resources. Our customers are also asking us to deliver these resources in a highly scalable way and in the shortest possible delivery timeline. Partnering with Alibaba Cloud enables us to fulfill the business requirements of our customers," he added.
