HGC launches international cloud services

05 February 2013 |


HGC has launched a cloud computing service between its cloud platforms in Hong Kong and Los Angeles.

The move marks the company’s entry into the international cloud services market.

Targeting multinational corporations and SMEs, HGC’s Hutch-Cloud offers IaaS and BaaS, as well as Dedicated-Bandwidth-as-a-Service and On-Demand Virtual Leased Line (ODVLL).

The company claims it is the first operator in the Asia-Pacific region to launch ODVLL.

Andrew Kwok, president of international carrier business at HGC, said that the company is looking to increase its number of HGC cloud sites in different regions, starting with Asian and North American markets.

“Our international business capability is gradually extending HGC’s role as a leading ICT service provider and carrier’s carrier into the exciting new era of IT-as-a-Service, through cloud computing,” said Kwok.

HGC appears to be pursuing opportunities outside of the traditional carrier market, with the launch of Hutch-Cloud following a partnership with WhatsApp services in October last year.
