Orange Business Services has expanded its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud offering in Asia Pacific.
Flexible Computing Advanced is targeted at large multinational companies who have multiple data center and network requirements across many countries.
Enterprises can scale up and down IT resources to adapt to their real business needs – and pay for what they need. They gain from control, agility, scalability and security backed by a global network, said Orange Business Services.
Orange Business Services said Flexible Computing Advanced allows enterprises to build a Virtual Data Center (VDC) with scalable resources (CPU, RAM, storage, backup, network bandwidth). Customers can manage via a self-service portal or by Orange Business Services if required. They can also add physical servers if they have a specific need for them. Orange offers end-to-end service level agreements (SLA) and management for the entire infrastructure.
Orange Business Services is offering Flexible Computing Advanced from Orange cloud service data center nodes in Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney. It will host customers’ data and applications in the Tier 3+ data centers.
“Orange chose to launch Flexible Computing Advanced in Hong Kong as it serves as the regional hub for thousands of multinationals around the Pearl River Delta. We believe it will help meet the growing demand for IaaS in the Asia Pacific,” said Derrick Loi, senior director for Orange Cloud for Business, Asia Pacific.
