Singapore-based cloud platform targets Asian market

Tata Communications has launched a cloud platform called InstaCompute in Singapore, which it expects to bring in $250m over the next three years

Tata Communications has launched its infrastructure-as-a-service cloud offering in Singapore.

Singapore is the second country after India — the telecoms player's home market — to offer InstaCompute, said David Wirt, Tata Communications's global head of managed services and senior vice president, at a briefing on Tuesday. Run out of its local datacentre, Tata Communications Exchange (TCX), the cloud service will also cater to neighbouring markets such as Malaysia, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines.

According to Wirt, Tata Communications has identified a market opportunity in cloud offerings and expects such services to bring in $250m (£154m) in revenue over the next three years. "We're betting Tata Communications on the cloud," he said. "We really believe that telecommunications service providers have an advantage in this market."
