in brief SuccessFactors has announced that it will start hosting its cloud products out of a datacentre in Sydney, Australia, to service customers in the region.
The SAP-owned company is targeting government and local businesses with the datacentre, which will host the SuccessFactors Business Execution suite BizX. The datacentre, obtained via the company's purchase of Australia-based analytics firm Infohrm in 2010, is a Federal Government panel-certified facility, and is also ISO 27001 certified.
"The new datacentre opening comes at a perfect time, as it is designed to meet the rapidly growing hosting demands of the Australian government and local businesses customers," said Murray Sargant, SuccessFactors vice president of Asia Pacific, in a statement.
"We have a very strong presence in Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and Brisbane, so many of our customers will find it helpful to have access to a datacentre which offers premium support and optimal reliability in the country. We are committed to advancing Australia as a cloud-computing hub for the region, and we are very excited about the growth potential the datacentre will bring to the APAC market."
