Retarus expands Singapore data center to match APAC growth

25 Nov 16

Global messaging service provider Retarus has expanded its Singapore data center, staff and developments as the company addresses local customer requirements.

The data center expansion will help to provide a direct connection for the company's Cloud Fax Services to local carriers and internet service providers.

The data center is situated within a secure and separate section of a 'leading' international colocation provider's facilities, it has its own failsafe power supply. Retarus says its data center fully operates and uses its own equipment.

This is to ensure data is processed locally in order to comply with regulations, privacy requirements and data security, says Oliver Prevrhal, managing director of Retarus Asia.

“Through the ongoing growth of our Global Delivery Network, we also open up the Asian market for European and American companies with international sites. In this way, companies including banks, insurers, healthcare and manufacturing companies with local sites or subsidiaries, where security of data is of utmost priority, can benefit from the remarkably reliable and speedy performance of Retarus’ services as well as the ultimate in service quality," Prevrhal continues.

APAC customers will also see a flow-on effect through lower latency times than if they connected through centers in the United States or Europe, the company says.

The company is also providing better connections for its American and European customers to benefit from more efficient and reliable communication with the Asia region, it says.

The company has also expanded its Asia Pacific sales, service and technology team for better growth opportunities

“Increasing our headcount allows us to focus more closely on the needs of local businesses,” Prevrhal says.
