Singapore: The Gateway to Cloud in Southeast Asia
NTT Singapore’s NexConnect Cloud Service, Megaport Connected, drives cloud growth in Southeast Asia.
Cloud adoption is taking off in Singapore; the nation was named as the second most ‘cloud ready’ country in the latest Asia Cloud Computing Association (ACCA) Cloud Readiness Index. Market research shows that Singaporean companies are embracing more complex cloud strategies, with 44% of residents taking a cloud-first approach to IT, using applications and infrastructure services rather than managing their own data centres. This figure is set to climb to 59% in two years.
NTT Communications has the largest-scale data centre and network coverage in Asia-Pacific. Intrinsic to cloud access in Southeast Asia, Singapore acts as a gateway to the greater region. Located in the heart of the business district, NTT’s Serangoon Data Center in Singapore is a connectivity hub for the financial services industry and multinational corporations. The data centre uses the Asia Submarine-cable Express (ASE) to interconnect key metros and provide support for continuous growth in local and international business.
NTT Singapore’s NexConnect Cloud Service, Megaport Connected, is an innovative network solution that will, no doubt, drive growth and cloud maturity within the region. This service will enable Serangoon Data Center customers with secure, direct, and reliable connections to the top five Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), and more, through a single connection. This means that the region’s most influential corporations will not only have dedicated cloud access for demanding workloads, but also, greater choice in CSPs as they join our Network. Empowered by NTT Communications’ vast data centre network and Megaport’s world-leading SDN, businesses can now build highly scalable and flexible cloud strategies in Singapore and beyond.
