BANGALORE, INDIA: Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SingTel) and VMware on Monday announced the launch of SingTel PowerON Compute, enabled by VMware vCloud Datacenter Services.


This enterprise hybrid cloud computing solution enables enterprises to upgrade their IT resources without the complexities of purchasing and managing additional servers and systems, thereby reducing operating costs by up to 73 per cent, said a press release.

Companies will be able to expand the resources of their private cloud infrastructure into PowerON Compute’s secure public cloud without the hassles of re-installing and re-configuring their software applications, claimed the company.

This means customers can fully utilise current IT infrastructure investments while benefiting from on-demand, pay-as-you-use, public cloud computing resources.


“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,” said Bill Chang, SingTel’s executive vice president of business group.

They will also be able to preserve investments in existing computing infrastructure without changes to their IT operations, he added.

Offering a common, globally consistent enterprise hybrid cloud computing infrastructure, VMware vCloud Datacenter Services place full and rapid control in the hands of IT departments, enabling them to monitor, manage and secure their applications across environments.

Paul Maritz, VMware chief executive officer, said: “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.”
