Virtustream Expands Enterprise Cloud Platform for Mission Critical Applications to Asia-Pacific RegionMarch 23, 2017
Virtustream, the enterprise-class cloud company and a Dell Technologies Business, today announced that its enterprise cloud platform and services for mission critical applications are now available in the Asia-Pacific region including Australia and Japan. This offering includes Virtustream’s innovative cloud technology and unique consumption billing model.
The need for enterprise cloud services in the region is increasing. According to published research, by 2020, "IDC predicts the Cloud Systems Infrastructure Services revenue in Asia/Pacific including Japan will reach $12.9 billion."
"The pent up demand for enterprise-level cloud services in the Asia-Pacific region is tremendous as organizations are eager to globally scale their operations at a rapid pace; while also managing the complexities of migrating their existing systems of record to the cloud," said Frank Gens, IDC senior vice president and chief analyst. "Add to that regional needs such as data sovereignty, and it narrows the playing field of providers significantly."
Virtustream is bringing its enterprise cloud platform – built specifically for the mission critical applications that are essential for commerce, customer interaction, and enterprise productivity-to customers in the Australia/New Zealand (ANZ) region. Virtustream has established a cloud presence in Sydney and Canberra in order to serve the needs of both the enterprise and public sectors within Australia. This expansion comes on the heels of Virtustream’s recently announced expansion in Japan with regional ICT providers.
"We are prepared to tackle the most challenging digital transformation projects for our customers in Asia-Pacific," said Simon Walsh, chief operating officer, Virtustream. "Our local partnerships combined with the strength of our cloud platform, deep expertise in the enterprise cloud space and relationship with Dell Technologies will provide businesses in the region with an unprecedented opportunity to utilize the cloud to rapidly transform and scale their businesses."
Virtustream’s partnership with Dell Technologies is a critical part of its formula for success as it continues to expand in the Asia-Pacific region.
"Virtustream and Dell EMC’s cloud solution will create new ways for organisations to approach enterprise cloud in ANZ. The platform offers the cost benefits of consumption billing, as well as increased security, compliance, application performance and disaster recovery," said Mark Fioretto, vice president, Enterprise, Dell EMC Australia and New Zealand. "The business of migrating mission-critical systems of record to the cloud is complex and requires specific expertise. Our customers require a multi-cloud strategy to truly transform their environments. Between Virtustream and our service provider ecosystem, Dell EMC is ideally positioned to provide enterprise and public sector customers with the choice they need to digitally transform their organisations."
