Singapore’s StarHub will use IO’s data center modules and data center platform in the Arizona company's Singapore data center as part of the infrastructure that supports its portfolio of enterprise network solutions. The IO-powered offerings will be called “StarHub Data Center powered by IO.”
StarHub provides connectivity and high-speed Internet, security, media and video management solutions and managed network services to enterprises. Using IO’s modules will allow it to deploy infrastructure in support of its enterprise hosted offerings quickly, while the platform will be used to manage and operate the infrastructure.
IO has done well with its modules and continues to innovate when it comes to the software-defined data center. The company also does well in Singapore, which acts as headquarters of its Asia Pacific operation.
IO opened a data center in Singapore in October 2013. Last year, it also released a video of some of its modules rolling through the streets in support of its anchor customer there, investment bank Goldman Sachs.
The combination of IO’s data center modules and data center operating system called IO.OS is called Intelligent Control. The setup allows operators to quickly deploy data centers in any location using the modules, while the built-in platform analyzes and monitors performance metrics across the IT equipment and support infrastructure.
StarHub will provide customers with service dashboards, such as Low Latency Network, Managed Services, Distributed Denial of Service Protect, Content Delivery Network and Web Application Firewall. StarHub said several companies in financial, media and IT sectors are already using its service.
"We are very pleased that StarHub trusts IO Singapore to deliver the most technologically advanced data center services and solutions to their customers,” said George Slessman, IO CEO and product architect.
