LG CNS has partnered with Megazone Cloud, South Korea's largest public cloud vendor, to expand its cloud business, the company announced.
Megazone Cloud, an AWS Premier Partner, boasts around 900 customers with revenue of 220 billion won (US$195 million), the largest for a public cloud firm in South Korea.
