Clark, the Philippines, October 1, 2020 – CloudSigma is proud to announce a new partnership with Comfac Global Group, one of the Philippines’ leading systems integrators. The joint venture will offer cloud solutions out of the highly secure Vitro Clark data center in Clark, the Philippines. The new offering marks CloudSigma’s third location in the country after the initial two cloud locations in Manila.
For more than 35 years Comfac Global Group has consistently delivered comprehensive workplace facility solutions and information technology planning and implementation services for both private and government accounts. The Comfac Global Group unites four companies: Comfac Corporation, Cornersteel Systems Corporation, Energy Solution Company (ESCO), and Comfac Technology Options Inc (CTO). The partnership with CloudSigma adds an Infrastructure-as-a-Service solution to CTO’s portfolio of products and services.
“Seeing the high demand for cloud services in the Philippines and globally as well, we decided to add CloudSigma’s IaaS offering to our portfolio of services. Being one of CloudSigma’s biggest users and at the same time one of Philippines’ leading software development companies and solution integrators, we would very often refer CloudSigma as a reliable cloud to our clients and would develop most of our new projects on their servers. We are excited to begin offering CloudSigma’s highly-secured and cost-efficient flexible solutions to our local market.”Jimmy Aquino, Chairman and CEO @ CTO
Key-Value Added Services
Formerly, one of CloudSigma’s biggest clients, Comfac Global Group made the decision to partner with us, so that it can deliver a powerful Infrastructure-as-a-Service solution for its clients in the Philippines and around the world. Thus, the transition from a client to a partner is a testament to the success and reliability of CloudSigma’s cloud services. More than that, Comfac Global Group realized that it was economically and strategically the right move for CTO to partner with CloudSigma.
The new Clark location aims at serving the rapidly expanding Asia-Pacific market. Thus, it will enhance CloudSigma’s current portfolio of cloud solutions in APAC locations, including Manila, the Philippines, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and Perth & Melbourne, Australia.
The Vitro Clark Data Center is designed in accordance with the National Structure Code of the Philippines. In addition, it uses the highest consideration for building construction, maximum security, and safety. It is the largest data center facility outside Metro Manila. With its robustness and sophistication, the facility is ready to support the primary colocation requirements of enterprises both in the Philippines and globally.
Thanks to CloudSigma, CTO will be able to offer one of the most customizable cloud infrastructure solutions on the market. The offering is delivered as a service to help clients successfully implement an optimal cloud strategy for all of their workloads.
The new solution offers several unique value propositions. First, it gives a hybrid cloud option that ensures direct & secure connectivity between private networks in the cloud and your private infrastructure. Furthermore, clients can rely on CloudSigma’s friendly and skilled customer support that is available 24X7 with a response time under one minute.
Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity: all within the Philippines
“Having a direct cross-connect between our facility and that of CloudSigma’s other partner in Manila is a game-changer not only to our service offering but the entire cloud industry in the Philippines. As the two locations are 100km away from one another, this provides our clients with the perfect low latency DR solution that they have been missing until now.”Jimmy Aquino, Chairman and CEO @ CTO
Thanks to direct dedicated connectivity to one of CloudSigma’s Manila cloud locations, clients of the new cloud solution in Clark will be able to take advantage of CloudSigma’s disaster recovery solutions.
CloudSigma’s integrated disaster recovery and business continuity features will allow customers to connect their applications to backend cloud storage and processing or mirror their cloud or physical infrastructure 1:1. Compared to traditional solutions that require complex set-ups and custom implementations, this new DRaaS feature is hypervisor and application-independent and can be self-configured via the main WebApp.
“The new partnership and location with CTO will extend our reach into the Filipino enterprise market in conjunction with the many value-added services that CTO is already offering that sector. Likewise, the new Clark location is ideally positioned to benefit from the high growth of both the private and public sectors in that region. We are very happy to be launching what we anticipate to be a highly successful new cloud location.”Robert Jenkins, CEO @ CloudSigma
The new cloud offering is locally hosted in a world-class, carrier-neutral data center in Clark and is powered by the latest generation HPE servers. The servers offer high industry standards, delivering exceptional performance, both from compute and storage perspective. This has been made possible thanks to CloudSigma’s successful partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE).
CloudSigma has been a part of the HPE Partner Ready Program since 2017. The collaboration enables leading IT service providers, data centers and telecommunication operators around the globe to deliver best-in-class cloud services to end-customers via the cloud-as-a-service model (CaaS).TEST NOW
