Singtel, Wednesday announced a suite of hybrid cloud services that consist of a new platform, Singtel Liquid Sky as part of its overall managed cloud offerings. The platform allows companies to orchestrate the setup and operations of their hybrid cloud environments. Through this offering, tasks such as provisioning, governance, spend management, configuration and catalogue development can be automated and scheduled via pre-defined workflows.

The new offering also includes the Data Center and Cloud Connect Service (DC Connect) service. The DC Connect is a first-of-its-kind software-defined network service to be rolled out in Singapore, which allows firms to easily access and move their data seamlessly between a hybrid of public and private clouds in more than 20 data centres using a single connection.

Singtel said that the DC Connect service also provides low latency, of less than one millisecond, and a secure web portal for companies to dynamically adjust their cloud network requirements and manage costs in a pay-as-you-use manner. Additionally, Singtel will launch the Cloud Life Cycle Service or CLS which allows firms to understand and chart a progression pathway between their present and future states of cloud maturity, as part of their digital strategies.

Singtel said that businesses in Asia-Pacific will need to adopt a hybrid cloud model to ensure their digital transformation efforts are realized and achieve agility and efficiency.

After the initial euphoria to adopt cloud, many enterprises typically face challenges in rolling out hybrid cloud environments because of the technical complexities and capability shortfalls involved. This suite of services allows them to implement their cloud operations more easily.
