Q1 Panel Event Recap: Cloud vs Colo Smackdown – Where to Put Your Infrastructure

We recently hosted an educational panel event with the Seattle SIM where three of our valued clients, each an IT operations expert, shared their stories of why they decided to move infrastructure in or out of the cloud. 

The panelists talked about the decision making factors around their move and why it was the right solution for their company’s infrastructure. Watch the debate and learn more about the three different scenarios here.

The Allure of Singapore – The World’s Second Gateway to China

Rapidly establishing itself as the place where international companies go to serve customers in China, and where Chinese companies go to serve customers in Europe or North America, Singapore has become a popular destination for IT infrastructure providers.

It is one of the few markets in APAC where carriers don’t dominate the data center landscape, allowing for a truly competitive marketplace for both colocation and cloud/managed hosting solutions.

As APAC continues to mature as an economy, more and more of our clients have been targeting Singapore as their destination for expansion, and while rates are still significantly higher than Europe or North America, they are quickly becoming more competitive.
