SAN FRANCISCO, CA—Mar 1, 2012—Joyent, a global provider of cloud computing software and services, today announced its plans to extend its real-time public cloud offering to Asia in the second quarter of 2012, starting with a public cloud in Tokyo and following with a Singapore-based operation catering to the greater Southeast Asia region.
The plan is in response to existing customers who plan to expand their businesses into the two regions, and from partners like Telefonica who are encountering heightening demands for bullet-proof, real-time infrastructure that can handle the increasing need for machine-to-machine and real-time mobile communications.
“Japanese consumers and businesses have high standards when it comes to real-time apps, and we want to ensure that these customers—some of the most innovative and pioneering companies in the world—are provided with the best cloud experience across the globe,” stated Steve Tuck, General Manager of Joyent Cloud, Joyent’s public cloud line of business. “Similarly, consumers and businesses in Southeast Asia are demanding a better cloud services experience and we will provide that through our unique technology stack.”
“Joyent service and support is key to Voxer’s highly demanding global service. Japanese and other users in Asia are embracing Voxer and as these markets expand we will continue to depend on Joyent to provide the required data center presence,” said Matt Ranney, CTO of Voxer, provider of the popular Walkie Talkie application for mobile devices. “We look forward to working with Joyent in Japan and Southeast Asia to continue providing true real-time functionality and service for our sophisticated customers.”
Throughout 2012 Joyent will roll out a collection of seamlessly connected high performance public clouds that serve global corporations with consistent computing services on every continent.
