VESK launch in Singapore

Singa

In this modern world of localisation cloud services it is key to fulfil access requirements. A major part of the cloud stack is hosted or cloud hosted desktops. These desktops enable remote workers to access and centralise their data to help with a more flexible work environment. Data can be accessed singularly or as a group collaboration

Vesk has announced a roll out of their services in the ASIA Pacific region with a first port of call in Singapore. This is part of VESK eventual global expansion plan with further countries to be announced in the coming months.

In partnership with the Equinix SG1 data centre service and access provided by GTT Networks, VESK has installed an easily scalable and  robust service for Singapore to rely on.

 “WE HAVE INVESTED A QUARTER OF A MILLION POUNDS TO GROW OUR EXISTING INFRASTRUCTURE FILLING TWO FULL CABINETS IN THE SG1 DATA CENTRE IN THE CENTRE OF SINGAPORE’S FINANCIAL DISTRICT,” SAID JAMES MACKIE, MANAGING DIRECTOR, VESK.

“Launching our presence in Singapore has been an exciting expansion for VESK and we look forward to doing more business in the Asia-Pac region in the future,” Mackie added.

The location of the data centre enbles VESK to access key research and financial markets

Underpinned by the latest Citrix Xen Hypervisor along with an impressive Flash based storage pool and 10GBPs interconnectivity this is indeed a fantastic architecture to invoke desktop services upon.

Initial tenants for the project in Singapore includes notable companies in both legal and recruitment sectors similar to VESK’s UK offering.

Singapore ranks at number 2 on the Computing Market Attractiveness Index prepared by the Asia Cloud Computing Association.

Singapore has a huge market of over four hundred thousand small to medium enterprises, the vast majority making up around half of Singapore’s entire Gross Domestic Product .

Early adopters will most likely be the legal industry and recruitment sectors. Commerce and accommodation will likely follow.

To access this highly addressable and changing marketplace VESK may be a pioneer with many other UK companies potentially following this lead.
