Samsung SDS, the IT service arm of Samsung Group, has announced its newly constructed data center in Dongtan District in Hwaseong City of Gyeonggi Province, the country’s first facility dedicated to high-performance computing (HPC), to demonstrate the company’s power in the B2B cloud computing industry.
The company plans to increase its presence in the domestic enterprise cloud computing market by providing secure and customized cloud services tailored to the needs of business-to-business (B2B) customers that want to achieve digital transformation.
According to Hwang Sung-woo, CEO of Samsung SDS, during a press conference in Seoul, people who use cloud computing services well receive a lot of benefits, but those who are not used to it experience inconvenience.
Explaining the company’s strength in the B2B cloud computing market, the data center provides high-speed and large-capacity cloud computing services to customers who need complex operations such as AI, big data analysis and R&D tasks through Samsung Cloud Platform (SCP).
Samsung SDS added that the Dongtan center is the only facility in Korea to be mutually backed up between its three data centers, which means it is capable of providing stable services regardless of exceptional events such as fires or power outages.
