HGC launches ibizCloud service in Indonesia in partnership with local ISP

Hutchison Global Communications Limited (HGC) and PT  Centrin Online Prima  (Centrin Online), a leading Indonesian Internet service provider (ISP) have launched ibizCloud in Jakarta, Indonesia, a cloud service tailored for the Indonesia market. This launch aims to provide a one-stop global cloud service that meets the infrastructure and speed requirements of local and international enterprises.

HGC provides cloud technologies and service design, as well as international connectivity, while Centrin Online provides local connectivity for the service. This launch aims to help the latter cmeet increasing demand for data exchanges from corporations operating in Indonesia.

Offered as a total solution, ibizCloud aims to enable Indonesian businesses to access reliable cloud storage without having to make hefty upfront investment in infrastructure. The service grants access to a cloud environment via Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS),   Bandwidth-as-a-Service  (BaaS)   and  Dedicated  Bandwidth-as-a-Service  (DBaaS).  Customer organizations can also choose to use on-demand Virtual Leased Line (ODVLL), which facilitates end-to-end data transmission over a secure network. ibizCloud comes complete with virtualised infrastructure such as virtual machines, CPU cores,  RAM and storage. 

Andrew Kwok, President of International and Carrier Business at Hutchison Telecommunications (Hong Kong) Limited, said: “Making ibizCloud available in Jakarta represents a great start to 2017 for HGC. The new cloud site strengthens ibizCloud’s market  position  in Asia, following launch of the service in Hanoi last December. HGC works tirelessly to enhance ibizCloud features in order to meet ever-rising demand from multinationals.  One of the value-added features to look out for in early 2017 will be a resource pool arrangement by which customers can allocate additional resource promptly, without having to go through a subscription process.”

Centrin Online CEO Ismail Hirawan said: “We are proud of this collaboration between Centrin Online and HGC to extend ibizCloud into Indonesia. The move offers attractive opportunities to provide fast, reliable and secure world-class cloud service. ibizCloud is tailored to the ISP market, in which we have more than 25 years’ experience.”
