Asia’s first disruptive cloud platform
A brainchild of four IT industry leaders, the Asia Cloud Platform (“ACP”) is launched on the promise to facilitate businesses in Asia to be more competitive by way of simplifying their move to the cloud.
ACP is powered by the collective expertise of individuals and alliance partners across Asia who share the same vision and belief that a federated cloud platform is vital for cloud operators and general businesses to stay ahead of the game.
ACP sees a holistic need that legacy cloud setups and data centres cannot fulfil. The current cloud service platforms are operating in silos, where moving the business to the cloud is often an arduous and complicated process, wrought by compliance and security challenges.
Many cloud providers in Southeast Asia and, by extension, Asia are still clinging to legacy technology due to the high cost of infrastructure upgrade. The outdated and inflexible technology proved to be lacking, expensive, non-compliant and not sustainable in the near future.
Security matters have made it challenging for application developers to have their products in the cloud, depriving businesses of their uses. With ACP’s unique architecture and industry expertise, the applications are protected from cloud security threats, enabling a true end-to-end multi-cloud, flexible IT-enabled infrastructure. Businesses that migrate to ACP will have cost savings from a pay-as-you-go model, while reaping the benefits of ACP’s professional services.
“Asia Cloud Platform is formed with the intention to integrate the gaps between the need of the current businesses and the current cloud product and services offered into our very own system, whether it is the technology, policy or its infrastructure. With ACP, we trust that we will be able to put together a new community, leveraging on the federated cloud,” said Lim Chin Sean, one of ACP’s founders.
The other three founders are Rodrigues Teh, Hui Kiat Bin and Reuben Gerard Paul. Collectively, their work and expertise have shaped the IT and cloud landscape in Malaysia.
Malaysia serves as ACP’s initial starting point, where some of the leading names in the business community are already clients, and in the long-term the federated cloud platform will grow to serve the Asian region.
Recognising the immense growth potential, ACP’s alliance partners in the respective markets, armed with local know-how, will be invaluable to clients. The alliance partners have a true understanding of their local market and needs, providing bespoke personalised one-to-one services to companies of different tiers and needs.
“We envision that our “ACP” will build on our very own Asian cloud computing enterprise community and I believe this will be the Future of Cloud computing,” he added.
