Joyent announced the opening of two new data centers in Singapore and South Korea – targeting large enterprise deals in Asia.
The company did not reveal the size of the investment.
The strategy behind the investment in new data centers in Asia is aimed at signing deals for the company’s Triton Private Regions, a next generation approach to cloud infrastructure as a service designed to deliver increased control and cost savings.
Customers with large scale and predictable infrastructure requirements are driving demand for the service, which enables organizations to cut their current cloud costs by 50 percent or more.
Its customers including Fortune Global 50 companies use Triton Private Regions to run some of the world’s largest web, mobile, AI, machine learning and IoT applications. Triton Private Regions offers performance for their infrastructures while achieving unprecedented cost savings.
“Joyent made these new data center investments in Asia to meet the needs of our customers who operate globally distributed applications,” said Bill Fine, vice president, Product at Joyent.
The company said Private Regions combines private cloud economics and control with the simplicity of a public cloud by creating dedicated, private regions for each enterprise customer in Asia.
The Singapore and South Korea data centers represent the first phase of Joyent’s expansion into Asia. Data centers already in operation and supporting Triton Private Regions include locations in Ashburn, Virginia, and Amsterdam.
