Singtel has announced a collaboration deal to connect its Cloud Access service to Alibaba Cloud, allowing enterprises around the world to access its cloud applications more quickly and securely.

Singtel’s Cloud Access service is based on Singtel’s IP-VPN with 428 PoPs around the world. The service allows enterprises to access cloud applications through a secure, private network, rather than internet-based connections which are vulnerable to disruptions. With reliable and high-speed connectivity, enterprises can perform business-critical functions more cost-efficiently.

“Riding on Singtel’s extensive IP-VPN, enterprises in China and Singapore will find the new connection particularly useful as it eases their operations and business expansion seamlessly,” said Bill Chang, CEO of Group Enterprise at Singtel. “Coupled with Singtel’s network of data centres in the region, Singtel can support Chinese enterprises, including software and cloud service companies, with comprehensive ICT and managed services.”

Singtel will first roll out the cloud access service in Singapore and Hong Kong, before offering it in the United States and Europe.

Singtel said Alibaba Cloud is the latest addition to its partner network which provides connections to public cloud providers such as Amazon, Microsoft, IBM SoftLayer and Google across 30 global cities.
