SINGAPORE, 18 January 2016 – Keppel Data Centres Holdings Pte Ltd (Keppel Data Centres), a subsidiary of Keppel Telecommunications & Transportation Limited (Keppel T&T), has selected Epsilon, a privately owned global communications service provider, to deliver local access networks in Singapore, IP Transit services and global connectivity.
Keppel Data Centres will be able to support the networking needs of its customers using Epsilon’s flexible network Infrastructure as a Service (network IaaS) offering, enabling them to scale their cloud services globally.
Mr Thomas Pang, Chief Executive Officer of Keppel T&T said, “Beyond providing just data centre colocation services, we are exploring more ways to add value and further support our customers’ businesses. Organisations today need flexible, proven and secure infrastructure to run their enterprise applications and solutions. By offering Network Infrastructure as a Service, our clients will enjoy enhanced connectivity and flexibility when they need to incorporate cloud infrastructure to scale up quickly.
“We will continue to explore new opportunities with customers and support their growth in the long term,” he added.
Epsilon has local fibre infrastructure connecting data centre sites and enterprise locations in Singapore to its global network spanning Europe, the Middle East, North America and Asia-Pacific.
“Singapore is one of the world’s largest cloud hubs and we are proud to support the local and international growth of Keppel Data Centres’ customers. Our network IaaS is an ideal match for data centre providers who want to efficiently expand their network footprint with a model that is as flexible and agile as the cloud services they support. This deal demonstrates our ability to serve local needs while scaling globally to enable the success of our customers,” said Jerzy Szlosarek, Chief Executive Officer at Epsilon.
