GMO Cloud America inc. Adds South East Asia Location

Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) August 21, 2012

Cloud hosting provider GMO Cloud America inc. today announces an additional location for its multi-location service. The multi-location service was launched earlier this month allowing its customers the ability to use resources in the USA (San Jose) and Japan (Tokyo). Today, the firm adds a third location, this time in Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur).

GMO Cloud America’s multi-location service provides powerful provisioning tools that allow its customers to deploy resources in a data center of their choice, making it easy to establish infrastructure in multiple geographic locations using a single Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider.

GMO Cloud America inc. CTO, Minoru Karasawa, said, Our decision to deploy a multi-location service in Kuala Lumpur is highly strategic. Renowned as a stable, well-established financial hub with one of the strongest economies in Asia, Malaysia is known as a country on the move. The nation has taken decisive steps to progress to a manufacturing-based, export-driven economy spurred on by high technology, knowledge-based and capital-intensive industries. Our US customers are excited about this new opportunity to use our multi-location service to deliver their offerings to both businesses and consumers in the dynamic South East Asian markets.

GMO Cloud America is known for its lower overall service cost and greater flexibility. Unlike many cloud providers, the firm doesn’t charge for data transfer. Whilst other cloud providers offer elasticity in resources, GMO Cloud America allows its customers even greater flexibility by letting them control the number of CPU cores, virtual CPU utilization rate, amount of memory and disk space independently. The firm also offers free setup and consultation for all of its price packs.

Director of Business Development, Shadi Ammouri, added, Penetration of broadband access Internet and internet capable mobile devices is growing rapidly throughout the South East Asian region. Malaysia is an ideal hub in which to locate cloud resources. Our customers are delighted to know that our SE Asia locations are offered at the same prices as our US cloud. All systems, software and support are offered in English, payment is in US dollars and invoices are sent from our US office.

Common User Scenarios for Multi-location include:

1. Provisioning distributed infrastructure to host applications that need to be located near end users.

2. Disaster Recoveryclients can run their production environment in their own data center and quickly switchover to a disaster recovery site in a GMO Cloud data center in case of an outage.

3. Failoverclients can host production and failover infrastructure in GMO Cloud America data centers located in either San Jose, Tokyo or Kuala Lumpur.
