US tech giant looks to Singapore & Hong Kong data center, cloud markets

05 Dec 16

United States-based data storage and cloud provider Open Systems Technologies (OST) has now taken the leap across the Pacific to expand its operations into Singapore and Hong Kong.

The company says the move is part of its $160 million global strategy to serve Fortune 500 clients with faster 'speed to market' services, particularly amongst data center and cloud storage providers.

The two new locations are expected to help the company generate an extra $12 million in revenue.

"We established a presence in Hong Kong and Singapore so we can serve our global clients in the most effective and efficient way. OST aligns to the cadence of our customers, and for enterprise customers this means a need for more global-level solutions," explains OST President and CEO Meredith Bronk.

The company has also called on long-time partners HPE, Cisco, EMC and Ingram Micro to help with the expansion, as their expertise has helped OST 'quickly adapt' to changing customer needs.

"We are strategic in our growth, so partnering with these OEMs and distributors allows us to scale appropriately. Our global data center customers need a partner who understands the importance of speed to market in a global economy. OST and its partners bring that to the marketplace with an innovative approach, focused on providing solutions which are specific to individual customer needs," Bronk says.

OST's chief innovation officer Jim VanderMey says the company is an expert in data center modernization as a service.

"Multi-national companies require partners that understand how to provide a continuum of services across the globe and OST has created solutions which enable that seamless integration," VanderMey concludes.
