Kuala Lumpur, 22 August 2022 – DE-CIX, the world’s leading operator of Internet Exchanges, has successfully signed their first local DirectCLOUD partner from the Southeast Asian region, BasicBrix, a reputable IT solutions provider. With this breakthrough, Malaysian businesses can now enjoy affordable and reliable technological support to grow their businesses globally by taking advantage of the range of cost-effective, secure cloud and infrastructure services from a trusted local partner.
DE-CIX’s service DirectCLOUD is a dedicated connection between a company’s infrastructure and a chosen cloud service provider that bypasses the public Internet and thus offers lower latency, higher performance, and increased security. DirectCLOUD enables customers to access the services of multiple cloud service providers, including not only large, global players – such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud – but also many niche, specialist, or regionally relevant cloud service providers via their own private, direct connection.
Cloud computing solutions provider BasicBrix has recently established its presence in Malaysia. BasicBrix is now opening its doors to local companies and institutions here with hopes that its various solutions will help propel Malaysian institutions towards the forefront of digital excellence on the world stage.
With the combination of BasicBrix’s hassle-free cloud computing services and DirectCLOUD’s secure and high-performance direct connection – which helps businesses bypass the Internet to increase security, minimise downtime and guarantee continuous connectivity to their chosen cloud service provider – enterprises, start-ups, SMEs, developers and even educational institutions can reap the benefits of cloud computing.
“In these challenging times, SMEs have a hunger for the same breakthrough Internet technologies that globally established companies and service organisations are already taking advantage of. With DirectCLOUD, Malaysian businesses will experience an easy and smooth connection to BasicBrix’s cloud services, allowing then to be at par with other international competitors.
“We give people and businesses the interconnection services they deserve and we are extremely committed to the Southeast Asian region. We’re happy to report that DE-CIX is constantly working on expanding its global DirectCLOUD partner ecosystem with globally and regionally active cloud service providers for a wide range of use cases,” said Ivo Ivanov, CEO for DE-CIX International.
DE-CIX, operating from almost 40 locations in Europe, North America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, interconnects over 2,500 network operators (carriers), Internet service providers (ISPs), content providers, and enterprise networks from more than 100 countries, offering interconnection services such as peering and cloud.
“Due to the partnership with BasicBrix, the cloud does not need to be overwhelmingly expensive nor complicated for Malaysian businesses” added Ivanov.
With DE-CIX Asia covering the markets of Singapore, Malaysia, and Brunei, the DE-CIX Asia interconnection ecosystem successfully brings low-latency and high-speed connectivity to economically strong but in part digitally underserved areas of the region, enabling the exchange of traffic locally.
The advent of DE-CIX marrying BasicBrix’s solutions offers tremendous opportunities in Malaysia, where DE-CIX is available in six of the most important data centres in the Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru regions.
“Founded and based in Southeast Asia, BasicBrix is committed towards bringing affordable, hassle-free and trustworthy cloud computing to this region. Amongst our goals is to localise the plethora of cutting-edge cloud technologies to the diverse and nuanced needs of local organisations and enterprises,” said Timothy Chan, the CEO of BasicBrix.
“As we grow our presence in Malaysia and Singapore, the two leading countries in terms of cloud consumption within the region, we are confident that the combination of our offerings with those of DE-CIX will be able to allow local companies to achieve previously unattainable levels of security, privacy and speed. In the coming years, BasicBrix plans to continue setting up cloud infrastructure across other Southeast Asian countries. By pairing our local infrastructure and expertise with the global interconnections of DE-CIX, we aim to help bring about much needed digital transformation to this underserved region,” he concluded. – Malaysian Business
