Webvisions Pte Ltd, a Singapore based web hosting company, recently announced the opening of new offices in Mumbai, India and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

As part of its move into India, Webvisions is building a 33,000 square feet data center facility in Mumbai, which is scheduled to be operational by December 2000. The center is designed for deploying Internet hosting solutions, including dedicated servers, co-location services, web hosting, as well as managed services such as caching, mirroring, load balancing, database administration, disaster recovery, failover systems, and system management services.

Built as a "next generation" Internet Data Center, the Mumbai facility will be equipped with high-level biometric security systems, automated temperature control and monitoring, raised flooring, comprehensive security systems and FM200 fire suppression systems.

By June 2001, Webvisions will establish two additional Internet Data Centers in Bangalore and Delhi.

"Webvisions will constantly facilitate the exponential growth of the Internet by building state-of-the-art web hosting facilities in locations promising the greatest potential," said Roger Lim, ceo of Webvisions. "Our expansion in Asia-Pacific is fueled by demand for our diversifying professional services. As we grow, we empower customers with the necessary resources to successfully expand their businesses with enhanced Internet operations."

Webvisions will also triple its current data center facilities in Singapore from 10,000 square feet to 30,000 square feet by December 2000 and plans to open offices in Hong Kong, Thailand and the Philippines in the next six months.
