Recognizing that a hybrid workforce is the future of doing business, Alibaba Cloud plans to build two new data centers in Korea and Thailand (aside from the one in the Philippines it announced early this year). The data centers will be vehicles for innovations that will support the hybrid work setup.
Alibaba Cloud, the digital technology and intelligence backbone of Alibaba Group, said the data centers will serve as intelligence backbones to support businesses on their journey to digital evolution.
Local businesses of all sizes in Korea will be able to deploy mission-critical workloads while enjoying more reliable and secure cloud services with lower latency. While for Thailand, the data center will offer products and solutions that are in line with Thailand 4.0, the Thai government’s 20-year strategy to promote digital innovation and the development of sustainable technologies.
“As one of the world’s top three cloud service providers, we are committed to bringing our world-class, hyper-scale cloud infrastructure to Korea and Thailand, so that we can support local businesses to be at the forefront of digital transformation,” said Selina Yuan, General Manager of International Business, Alibaba Cloud Intelligence. “With our business insight serving global customers in multiple key industries from retail to finance, logistics and manufacturing, we believe we can support local customers in Korea and Thailand to meet their digitalization needs from both a technology and services perspective.”
