Aims Group: Record year & award for Malaysian data center provider

02 May 17

2016 was a good year for the Aims Group – a carrier-neutral data center provider. This is apparent following the announcement from the company which states that Aims recorded a 24% growth in revenue in 2016.

The group claims this as their best performance to date.

Chiew Kok Hin, AIMS Group chief executive officer, comments, “despite the overall difficulty and glum of 2016, AIMS managed to outdo the odds with an unprecedented 24% revenue growth that propels the Group well above the industry average and establishing our credibility as the leading data centre in Malaysia.”

This follows the more than 300% increase in revenue for the data centre’s cloud-based services, according to the Aims group.

“Just two years ago, AIMS introduced its customised, ‘private’ cloud services. Today, we are seeing how well our corporate customers have been embracing this offering as they can get the best of both worlds – which are a managed data centre, with cloud capabilities,” he adds.

In addition, Aims was announced as the 2017 Frost & Sullivan “Malaysia Data Centre Services Provider of the Year.” The award was presented at the annual Frost & Sullivan Malaysia Excellence Awards that was held on 13 April 2017 at the KL Hilton.

“With strategic locations spread across Malaysia and SEA, its data centres are able to provide secure, robust, redundant and connectivity rich data centre facilities and services to its diverse range of customers from varied industry verticals," says Kavitha Palaniappan, research associate, ICT Practice - APAC Frost & Sullivan.

"Additionally, AIMS accelerates ahead by strategically investing in green technology to improve power capabilities in each of its data centers, resulting in increased efficiency,” adds Kavitha. 

Spread across more than 70,000 square feet of data centre space, AIMS is based in central Kuala Lumpur with sites in Cyberjaya, Penang, Johor and Sabah.
