28 October 2014 |

Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SingTel) has launched Microsoft’s Cloud Operating System Network (COSN) in Asia-Pacific.

The solution is said to enable enterprise customers to move their data between public cloud, dedicated private cloud and SingTel’s virtual private cloud.

SingTel is said to be the first telecoms operator in the region to partner with Microsoft to offer COSN.

COSN and SingTel Managed Cloud are hosted in SingTel’s data centres in Singapore and Australia, complying with local data protection regulations.

“This collaboration benefits enterprises which use widely available Microsoft applications, as they can now be assured of seamless interoperability between their Microsoft-based private clouds and SingTel Managed Cloud. They can move their workload to any cloud which best meets their price, security, compliance and performance objectives,” Lee Han Kheng, VP of global products at SingTel Group Enterprise.
