1-Net Collaborates with IPC to Expand Data Center Footprint in Asia
This partnership will enable customers to expand their data center deployment
more efficiently in Singapore and Philippines
SINGAPORE, 12th APRIL 2017 – 1-Net Singapore today announced that it has established a strategic partnership with IPC (IP Converge Data Services, Inc.), a cloud services and data center pioneer in Philippines. The partnership will provide customers with an interconnected data center network built for an increasingly digitized economy. This collaboration enables both organizations to extend their data center capacity for faster access and deployment for customers in the countries.
1-Net and IPC are both data center providers who operate carrier-neutral and telco-grade internet data centers in Singapore and the Philippines respectively. This strategic partnership will strengthen the data center services of both providers, ensuring that customers’ data is securely stored. It will also allow enterprises to run mission-critical systems in 1-Net’s and IPC’s facilities as they grow their businesses in the two countries. The partnership will enable both IPC and 1-Net to gain customers in both Philippines and Singapore with a single contract, allowing quicker deployment without the need to renegotiate service level agreements and contracts.
Recent reports from Structure Research, an independent research and consulting firm, have projected continued growth in data center demand in Asia. Singapore, in particular, is considered a default location for international expansion to the APAC region. Global companies are increasingly building their own data centers in Singapore, as well as outsourcing to professional data center services providers.
“We see great potential for Singapore companies to expand into Philippines given the strong growth of cloud computing adoption and increasing digitalization across the country. This partnership allows us to harness potential customers in the region to each other’s data center with a standardized service level agreement. Ultimately, we aim to create a data center ecosystem to enable our customers to expand their data center deployment in our regional partners’ facilities more efficiently. We hope that this will also help 1-Net and IPC to gain bigger market share in this region together,” said Mr. Wong Ka Vin, Managing Director of 1-Net.
Our partnership with 1-Net virtually expands the data center footprint of both companies. Gaining access to data center facilities in Singapore enables our enterprise customers to extend their network into the more mature market in Singapore and likewise, offers the same benefit to regional players present in Singapore who are looking to expand into thebustling Philippines economy for business expansion,” said Mr. Patrick David de Leon, Chief Operating Officer of IPC.
