This move satisfies the growing demand for optimised global cloud services in the Asia Pacific region.

iland is expanding its footprint into Singapore to address the demands of new and existing customers that require robust global cloud environments, the enterprise cloud infrastructure provider announced yesterday (July 22, 2014).

The company has chosen to deploy its cloud services through Pacnet's eight-storey CloudSpace II data centre (SGCS2). Located in Paya Lebar, the 155,000-square foot facility is the first pan-Asian Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) architecture enabling organisations to provision network resources within minutes across multiple sites, the company said in a media statement.

As cloud adoption continues to climb, multinational companies are racing to implement global cloud strategies that ensure resources can be easily managed and scaled. However, many continue to struggle to predict costs, overcome complexity challenges and satisfy compliance requirements. iland's Enteprise Cloud Services deliver the visibility, performance and personalised support required to avoid these issues upfront and achieve faster return on investment.

With data centres throughout the United States, United Kingdom and now Singapore, iland's services are designed to seamlessly support development, testing, business continuity and production workloads.

"Singapore is a hub of business and technological innovation, and we are pleased to expand into the region as we support the global cloud initiatives of several of our multinational customers," said Scott Sparvero, CEO and co-founder at iland. "Enterprise cloud hosting should be hassle-free, secure and compliant with applicable requirements. We are committed to working directly with customers to address their dynamic needs and ensure they can drive and protect business."

"We are very pleased that iland chose Pacnet's Singapore CloudSpace facility to introduce its cloud services into Asia-Pacific," said Giles Proctor, Pacnet's Vice President of Data Centre Services. "With direct connectivity to Pacnet's robust subsea cable infrastructure and interconnected data centre network throughout Asia-Pacific, iland can flexibly and seamlessly support the needs of its customers."
