Telehouse riding on 17% YoY cloud growth in Vietnam
By Asia Cloud Forum editors 12-Jul-2012
Telehouse, the data center and managed ICT services subsidiary of Japanese corporation KDDI, is expanding its cloud portfolio into Vietnam.
The expansion highlights the progression and growth of ICT across Asia, particularly in Vietnam. BroadGroup has reported that government e-initiatives and investments into ICT have driven the market for data centers in the country to grow by almost 60% in the last two years. Coupled with overseas investments, analysts forecast that data centers will account for around 20% of Vietnam's IT revenues by 2013.
"Despite the current uncertainty around the economic climate, Vietnam has experienced real growth in its ICT sector particularly with the introduction and adoption of cloud computing," said Hiroshi Kobayashi, managing director of Telehouse and KDDI Europe. "According to Gartner, the cloud sector is growing at a rate of 17% year-on-year, amounting to US$2.4 billion, with projections suggesting it will hit US$8.1 billion by 2013. Asia, and particularly Vietnam, represents huge potential for growth with experts stating the market could increase in size by four times its current amount by 2015, with 2012 on course to see a 50% growth rate of cloud adoption."
Telehouse Vietnam, which provides carrier-neutral data centers, is launching a Cloud Virtual Private Server (VPS) service, to meet the increasingly diverse and evolving needs of its customers.
Building on Telecloud -- Telehouse and KDDI's portfolio of enterprise Cloud solutions deployed within the Telehouse London site -- the VPS service will reside in Telehouse Vietnam. The service includes cost-effective, scalable and highly secure data storage and management; and dedicated virtual server, which can be edited and configured to desired requirements for applications hosting.
Telehouse hopes to provide a mission critical, scalable platform ensuring uptime reliability, low latency and data integrity while tapping on the secure global Telehouse and KDDI umbrella.
