Singapore emerging as the cloud computing hub in Asia-Pacific

Global and regional service providers have invested in data centers to support new advanced services in the region, which include cloud services. This has created a domino effect for demand: in particular, operators and MNCs require facility design expertise, network and IT infrastructure, the right staff skill levels, and an understanding of the operational requirements of data centers. The latest example is the announcement that Tata Communications is opening another enterprise-class data center for providing outsourced IT services for its customers in Asia-Pacific, as part of its $180 million investment to provide data center infrastructure and managed services in Asia-Pacific between 2009 and 2011. Other global telcos with data centers in Singapore include AT&T, BT, Verizon Business, SingTel, and Orange.

Japan , Singapore, and Hong Kong contain most of the data centers in the Asia-Pacific region.

Along with HTC and Motorola, Samsung has in recent times been among the most successful vendors in taking on Apple in the smartphone desirability stakes, aping Apple both in leaning towards the quality end of the market in terms of hardware and materials and, quite obviously to those who’ve used a Galaxy S, in terms of the overall user experience.
