Situated in the Asia-pacific (APAC) region, Singapore is an established business hub, and the world’s largest repository for storing and processing data. For any business planning to expand, Singapore is a key strategic location to consider. In this article, we explore five ways leveraging our managed cloud hosting in Singapore can elevate your business operations.
APAC Economic growth
S&P Global reported rapid expansion in the APAC region in 2023, with an estimated pace of 4.5% year-over-year, and are forecasting that the region will be ‘the fastest growing region of the world economy in 2024. This high economic growth has led to a rapid increase in demand for services across industries, including the electronics manufacturing supply chain, auto manufacturing, and international tourism.
This rapid economic growth makes the APAC region an attractive market to businesses looking to expand, whether you trade with businesses or direct to customers.
APAC data sovereignty
Data sovereignty refers to data being subject to the laws of the country in which it is stored. Issues with compliance can arise when you are operating in multiple regions from centralised data centres – utilising regional data centres allows you to manage your data in line with the laws of each location.
VMware Asia Pacific & Japan’s senior VP and general manager Sylvain Cazard stated regarding operations in the region: “Countries and regions have started to create guardrails around data, and digital sovereignty to protect data,”, increasing the demand for clouds hosted within the APAC region.
When you are operating globally, you will want to ensure optimal performance for all locations. Operating from a regional data centre reduces the physical distance between servers and users, reducing data processing and transmission time, minimising latency.
Minimising latency in your sites and applications by utilising our Singapore data centre means you can provide a more responsive and efficient experience for your users in the APAC region, ultimately benefiting your overall operation.
Managing servers globally in-house requires a skilled and experienced IT team, and can come with a significant cost and outlay of time. A managed provider takes on the responsibility of managing and optimising your infrastructure, so you gain the benefits of international reach, without the strain to your business.
Our Singapore data centre is part of our global network, meaning we can support your expansion into the APAC region. As a customer, our experienced cloud experts become an extension of your business, with 24/7/365 support across all timezones.
Our managed cloud solutions are tailored to your needs – every business is different, so we use a consultative approach to understand the best way to manage your infrastructure. Once we have consulted with you on your requirements, our technical experts will design the perfect platform for you, including bespoke configurations for CPU, RAM and storage, operating system, disaster recovery and more. Additionally, our environments are scalable by design, so as your operations in Singapore and the APAC region grow, your cloud solution can grow too.
Whatever your requirements for the APAC region are, we can build an optimised solution in our Singapore data centre.
Whether you are already operating in the APAC and looking to ramp up business with regional infrastructure, or interested in the benefits of beginning operating in the area – fill out our contact form and one of our cloud experts will be in touch.
