Verizon Business expands Asia-Pacific CaaS cloud base
ECM Plus – Verizon Business is extending its cloud-computing offerings into the Far East via its recently-opened Hong Kong data centre.
The company said its Verizon Computing as a Service (CaaS) offering could enable Pacific Rim enterprises to meet region-specific performance, security and compliance requirements.
According to Verizon, these localised capabilities are increasingly important, given the region’s projected economic growth.
Verizon added that the centre was the most advanced yet built by the company in the Pacific Rim and is located in a highly-resilient facility and connects directly to its network.
“Driven in large part by its overall economic prosperity, the Asia-Pacific region is leading the world in embracing cloud computing,” said Andrew Dobbins, regional vice president of Asia-Pacific for Verizon Business. “Cloud computing offers enterprises significant advantages over traditional IT models, and helps accelerate time to market and enhance productivity.”
