(Yicai Global) July 21 -- China's cloud computing service provider has made another leap in global service localization.
Aliyun Computing Co., an affiliate of Chinese internet heavyweight Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. [NYSE:BABA], and Malaysia Digital Economy Corp. (MDEC) jointly announced that the two sides will work together to establish their Digital Hub which will target local innovators and entrepreneurs, in a bid to provide cloud computing technologies for transformation to the digital economy and to bolster growth of scientific and technological industries in Malaysia.
They announced this in the peninsula and island nation's capital of Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
Upon founding of the digital incubator center, a string of Aliyun-backed services is set to activate in Malaysia, including Aliyun expert accreditation plan (ACP), one-to-one cloud computing consultancy services and customized cloud architecture solutions, Yicai Global has learned.
Amid the burgeoning Iinternet-based new economy within Southeast Asia, such new technologies as cloud computing and artificial intelligence (AI) are in growing demand. Aliyun installed its regional node in Singapore as early as 2015 before siting another one in Malaysia in May.
Aliyun has hitherto deployed more than 200 data centers in 14 regions across the world, offering reliable computing support to billions of global users in reliance on the self-developed operating system of Feitian Technologies Co. [SHE:300386].
