Globe: we were first on cloud-A A +A
Thursday, February 21, 2013
MANY companies are starting to secure their space in the country’s cloud computing realm. However, Globe says “only one can lay claim as being the first to reach the cloud, explore its many dimensions and harness its immense potential.”
Globe Business said it broke ground as the first telecommunications company to offer infrastructure cloud computing solutions to the country in August 2011 when it unveiled its initial offering, Infrastructure-as-a-Service, to complement existing data center services and address cloud requirements of clients. The company introduced in the Philippines a concept where customers can acquire their cloud and connectivity requirements from one provider.
To fortify its stronghold on the cloud, Globe Business also forged ties early on with industry leaders to deliver both ends of the cloud spectrum, such as VMware for its public cloud services, and Morphlabs for its private cloud for either on-premise or hosted deployment.
Globe said it continued its “display of superiority in the field of cloud computing last year” when it launched Dynamic Infrastructure Services or DIS.
DIS is a private cloud for enterprises that complies with strict standards and provides higher computing requirements that can run multiple critical applications. It also simplifies cloud computing by leveraging pre-configured and fully-tested components so enterprises can build private clouds at lower costs.
Above and beyond strictly offering its full arsenal of cloud-based solutions, Globe Business Enterprise Segments Head Grace Jarin-Castillo said the company delivers an end-to-end engagement framework where it works in close collaboration with clients to fulfill and address specific requirements.
“Through intensive scoping, giving expert recommendations and proper execution, Globe Business provides existing and potential customers with the appropriate cloud solutions and the corresponding support to realize its full potential and benefit,” she said.
