Asia’s first federated cloud platform launched


KUALA LUMPUR: The Asia Cloud Platform (ACP), a federated cloud service platform to help facilitate and simplify Asian businesses’ migration to the cloud system has been launched.

ACP founder Lim Chin Sean said ACP provided cloud service that went beyond traditional data centres, being able to accommodate customers’ fluctuating demands with ease, while its affiliate partners could adapt to such flexibility without having to build new points-of-presence. ACP is formed with the intention of closing the gaps between business requirements and the cloud product and services offered by our system, whether it is technology, policy or infrastructure.

“This platform is the first of its kind in Asia, using ground-breaking technology, and has a huge potential in its market reach like no other cloud provider can achieve. Malaysia serves as its starting point before moving into other Asean and Asian markets,” he told a press conference here yesterday.

ACP is the brainchild of four information technology industry leaders; Lim, Rodrigues Teh, Hui Kiat Bin and Rueben Gerard Paul.

Meanwhile, Teh said ACP would focus on Malaysian companies this year, before venturing into other Asian countries next year, adding that several leading local companies have already signed up for the system. – Bernama
