Hutchison Global Communications (HGC) and Indonesian ISP PT Centrin Online Prima (Centrin Online) have announced the launch of HGC’s ibizCloud in Jakarta, providing a one-stop global cloud service for local and international enterprises.
HGC says ibizCloud has been tailored to the Indonesian market. HGC provides cloud technologies and service design, as well as international connectivity, and boasts experience in designing cloud services to suit niche markets. Centrin Online provides local connectivity and will now be able to offer cloud service instantly without having to go through a product development process. This helps the company meet increasing demand for data exchanges from corporations operating in Indonesia.
Offered as a total solution, ibizCloud enables the Indonesian business community to access reliable cloud storage without having to make hefty upfront investment in infrastructure. The service helps enterprises keep pace with the big data trend by granting access to a cloud environment via Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Bandwidth-as-a-Service (BaaS) and Dedicated Bandwidth-as-a-Service (DBaaS).
Customer organizations can also choose to use on-demand virtual leased line (ODVLL), which facilitates end-to- end data transmission over a secure network. ibizCloud comes complete with virtualized infrastructure such as virtual machines, CPU cores, RAM and storage. All this enables corporations to access the Internet without restrictions on data volumes.
Andrew Kwok, President of International and Carrier Business at Hutchison Telecommunications (Hong Kong) Limited, said the new cloud site strengthens ibizCloud’s market position in Asia, following launch of the service in Hanoi last December.
Kwok also said that one of the value-added features to look out for in early 2017 will be “a resource pool arrangement by which customers can allocate additional resource promptly, without having to go through a subscription process.”
Centrin Online CEO Ismail Hirawan said the move to extend ibizCloud into Indonesia “offers attractive opportunities to provide fast, reliable and secure world-class cloud service.”
