Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group (NYSE: BABA), announced recently that it has expanded its data center operations in Singapore with the establishment of a second availability zone.
In September 2015, Alibaba Cloud established a data center in Singapore to provide enhanced cloud and big data services across Southeast Asia. The establishment of a second availability zone provides higher capacity to meet enterprise users’ demands for high availability and disaster recovery.
“The expansion of our Singapore data center enables us to meet the rapidly growing demand for cloud computing resources in Southeast Asia. This expansion also demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing one-stop global cloud and big data services to both Chinese and international enterprises. We will continue to grow our coverage worldwide,” said Mr. Sicheng YU, Vice President of Alibaba Group and General Manager of Alibaba Cloud International.
Alibaba Cloud has established overseas data centers in the United States, Hong Kong and Singapore, and plans to establish new data centers in other regions including Japan, Europe, the Middle East and Australia.
