The AIMS Group, a carrier neutral data services provider, has launched a private network connection to support Amazon Web Services Direct Connect service for customers in Malaysia.
The company will enable customers
to establish a dedicated network connection to AWS Cloud from
on-premises data centres, offices, or co-location environments,
allowing them to reduce networks costs, increase bandwidth
throughput, and provide a more consistent network
"AIMS has always been focused on building an ecosystem of
partners and customers that are mutually beneficial to each
other's business," explained Aims Group CEO Chiew Kok Hin.
"Our carrier-neutral status offers clients the ease to
connect with more than one telco creating a unique multi
beneficial ecosystem of international and local clients from
industries such as media, content, financial institutions,
multi-nationals, tourism, gaming and more."
The AIMS Group runs colocation facilities in Vietnam, Hong
Kong, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia. Aims’ data
center facility in Singapore is located in
Telstra’s Paya Lebar Data Center, a carrier
neutral data center and a part of the Pacnet Enabled
Chiew added that businesses would now be able to run both a
public and private environment, allowing resources to separate
where necessary. These could also be configured using virtual
interfaces, allowing AIMS’ customers to respond to
any changing needs.
"We have always listened to our customers' concerns and wish
list, and we believe AWS Direct Connect will benefit both our
existing and future customers," he added.
