Local infrastructure and cloud service provider IGS is working with NetApp to enhance its cloud service offering. AVM Cloud Services is a multi-tenancy cloud platform which offers a broad range of enterprise cloud services that are dynamic enough to support the needs of large organisations while meeting the basic requirements of small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
AVM Cloud Services offered by IGS comes mainly through three products: Virtual Private Cloud, Dedicated Cloud and Cloud-in-a-Box. Developed with NetApp’s Data Fabric strategy, users can easily manage customer data across centres equipped with NetApp as well as offer customers the ability of instantly interoperating with other clouds, including hyperscale cloud providers. NetApp’s Data Fabric strategy unifies data mobility with seamless data management, providing choice, maximum application availability and assurance against vendor lock-in.
Starting out as a traditional systems integrator that specialises in infrastructure solutions AVM Cloud Services has since grown into one of the largest cloud service platform in Malaysia. Offering customers a wide range of choices for compute, storage, and network connectivity; it is also available on demand and with a growing list of key workloads and applications.
Kenny Lim, Co-founder and Director of IGS said, “Our customers come to us with very complex IT needs, it’s more than just ensuring 100% application uptime. We need to meet the requirements that cater to a wide variety of workloads, which include mission-critical intensive applications and a wide spectrum of industry requirements. Beyond that, customers also expect a consistent level of performance, especially for these applications that demand a higher level of business agility.
“NetApp’s All-Flash integration, automation, software, QoS, and scalability are vital in enabling the unique offerings of our AVM Cloud Services. This is why IGS is proud to be ‘Fueled by NetApp’.”
Azrin Abd Shukor, Country Manager, NetApp Malaysia & Brunei said, “Data fabric is NetApp’s vision for hybrid cloud that enables service providers to do this effectively. Grounded by our Data Visionary proposition, NetApp believes in helping organisations transform and dominate new business models, thus forging new industries of tomorrow. We are happy to work with IGS to realise this vision and its plans on becoming one of the biggest cloud providers in ASEAN.”
