Joyent, an open cloud company, has opened two new data centers in Asia.

The new facilities are in Singapore and South Korea, marking the first phase of the company's expansion into Asia.

This expansion is being primarily driven by customers with large scale, global and predictable infrastructure requirements, Joyent claims.

“Joyent made these new data center investments in Asia to meet the needs of our customers who operate globally distributed applications,” explains Bill Fine, vice president, product at Joyent.

“Our customers include Fortune Global 50 companies that want to use Triton Private Regions to run some of the world's largest web, mobile, AI, machine learning and IoT applications.

Joyent says its expansion is also partly due to the global adoption of its Triton Private Regions platform, which the company describes as a next generation approach to cloud infrastructure as a service.

“Triton Private Regions give them the ability to precisely calibrate the performance and security of their infrastructures while achieving unprecedented cost savings.

Triton Private Regions is built on the foundation of the company's open Public Cloud and aims to combine private cloud economics and control with the simplicity of a public cloud by creating dedicated, private regions for each customer.

According to Joyent, the platform allows companies to focus on driving customer value through their core competencies, instead of investing time and budget managing multiple cloud expenditures.

Joyent, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Samsung, has several data centers in operation already and supporting Triton Private Regions which include locations in Ashburn, Virginia, and Amsterdam.
