Here's a guest post from Claus Moldt, our vp of service delivery:
I'm pleased to announce that our Singapore data center is now live! I'd like to thank the entire team as this represents thehard work of many people at the company. The new data center in Singapore willhelp accelerate customer adoption, and most importantly, customer success, withenterprise cloud computing worldwide.
Along with our two North American data centers and ourproduction-class development lab, the new Singapore facility allows us tomeet the service demands of our customers as well as extend the capacity,redundancy and scalability of our infrastructure.
Our geographically-dispersed, mirrored data centerinfrastructure provides near real-time replication, seamless disaster recovery,a dedicated, path diverse network backbone, no single points of failure and acarrier-neutral network strategy. What this means is that customers can focuson running their businesses, instead of managing infrastructure.
Supporting the data center infrastructure will be a newNetwork Operations Centre (NOC) headquartered in Singapore. The NOC enables 24x7,follow-the-sun monitoring of our data centers in North America and Singapore.
Marc Benioff and Craig Weissman, our Chief Architect,recently presented an overview of our service infrastructure at one of ourCloudforce events. It provides a great introduction to benefits ofmulti-tenancy, our real-time cloud computing architecture, and more. Check it out here.
