Managed services provider, Harbour MSP, is opening a datacentre offering in Singapore to address the needs of its Australian customers.
To be based within the Global Switch facility in Singapore, Harbour CEO, John Howl, said a growing number of customers had expressed a need for Singaporean datacentre access.
“A number of our customers have been mentioning Singapore for a while, so when the opportunity came up to buy into the market, we took it,” Howl said. The new offering includes an on-site operations centre supporting all products in Harbour’s portfolio. The managed services provider has been enjoying a strong few months, which has cumulated in being appointed to the Federal Government’s interim datacentre panel.
Harbour would look at expanding into further Asian markets as demand increased, Howl said. The MSP only operates within Tier 3 or 4 datacentres, making Singapore, Hong Kong and China the most likely areas of opportunity, he added.
