Exabytes Capital Sdn Bhd (Exabytes), a web hosting and cloud service provider, is collaborating with Huawei Technologies (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd to expand its cloud offerings.
Exabytes will be expanding its cloud portfolio to bolster its customers’ digital transformation efforts in adopting more smart solutions for their businesses.
Under the agreement, Exabytes will include Huawei Malaysia’s cloud infrastructure-, platform-, and software-as-a-service (IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS) systems, while enabling customer access to smart business applications driven by machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Leveraging Cloud for a Greater Competitive Advantage
Exabytes Executive Vice President and Head of Enterprise Business Eric Foo affirmed his belief that Exabytes’ partnership with Huawei Malaysia would allow Exabytes to use Huawei’s cloud platform and solutions partner ecosystem, to catalyse digital transformation journey in Malaysia.
He added that “we want to leverage the capabilities of digital technology to gain a better competitive advantage as well as other business values for our joint customers.”
Chan Kee Siak, Exabytes’ Chief Executive Officer, observed that cloud infrastructure would need to be complemented with business applications to achieve desired business outcomes. He noted that the partnership between Huawei and Exabytes would be the “enabler of innovation” for many when matched with Exabytes’ cloud-first smart solutions.
In a press release statement, he noted that “now more than ever, SMEs and large enterprises need to prioritise on ways to increase their online presence in order to stay competitive. With the cloud-first strategy, businesses can leverage the benefits of utilising cloud platforms such as having agility, scalability, security and speed to market.
“With that taken care of, companies can now focus on business applications, data analytics and automation in order to achieve the targeted outcomes and business imperatives such as improved user experience, increased productivity, cost optimisation, enhanced process efficiency and innovation.
“As more businesses are beginning to emphasise the adoption of digital solutions in many of their processes, research analysts believe that since the pandemic drastically changed how we live and work, more than 80% of IT operations will be hosted off-premises.”
The partnership between Huawei Malaysia and Exabytes is especially timely, as enterprises in Singapore and Malaysia are ramping up their efforts at adopting cloud computing and digitalising their businesses. With growing needs for automation, sustainability, and edge computing as Malaysia aims to enhance its global competitiveness, availability of access cloud solutions will be crucial for businesses and end-users.
