Bill Chang, executive vice president, Business Group, SingTel, said: “By working with VMware, PowerON Compute will enable enterprises in the region to turn on computing resources just like they turn on water from a tap. PowerON Compute will enable enterprises to move their operations to their hybrid cloud, without compromising security, control or performance, while allowing them to pay only for IT resources consumed.”

He added: “They will also be able to preserve investments in existing computing infrastructure without changes to their IT operations.  By improving their productivity and simplifying their processes, we seek to allow customers to increase their business agility, focus on their core business activities and reduce their costs significantly.”

Paul Maritz, CEO, VMware, said: “SingTel’s new PowerON Compute solution delivers on VMware’s promise to provide customers with hybrid cloud resources that enable IT as a service for their users. Hybrid clouds provide customers with freedom of choice that will eventually give rise to applications that can be ‘dragged and dropped’ between clouds and delivered securely to any device, anywhere, at any time.”
