SingTel and Optus Selected to Join VMware vCloudTM Datacenter Service Program

SAN FRANCISCO, CA–(Marketwire – September 1, 2010) –  Today at VMworld 2010, Vmware (NYSE: VMW) and SingTel announced that SingTel and its Australian subsidiary, Optus, are the first telecommunications operators in Asia Pacific to be selected to join the VMware vCloud™ Datacenter Service program.

SingTel’s VMware vCloud™ Datacenter Service is designed and certified to be secure, compliant and offer up to 99.999% availability. It is based on VMware infrastructure comprising VMware vSphere™, VMware vCloud™ Director and VMware vShield™. The relationship empowers SingTel and Optus to help customers accelerate their journey to cloud computing more seamlessly, and enjoy the cost and business-transformation benefits of IT as a Service.

Mr. Bill Chang, SingTel’s executive vice president of Business Group, said: “As the leading provider of cloud-based services in Asia Pacific, SingTel is excited to work with VMware to offer world-class cloud computing services. We seek to allow businesses in the region to improve productivity, simplify their operations and significantly reduce their operating costs.

He added: “Through this relationship, SingTel and Optus can enable enterprises to extend their private cloud resources into our trusted, secure hybrid cloud solution. This allows our customers to scale much more effectively for their peak load demands. By providing the benefits of world-class computing resources without the heavy costs and complexities of owning and managing ICT infrastructure, our cloud computing services give our customers a vital competitive edge.”

Andrew Dutton, senior vice president and general manager, VMware Asia Pacific Japan, said: “We are making interoperable, enterprise-class public clouds a reality. VMware is pleased that SingTel is one of the first players globally to come onboard with us and feel confident the public cloud services they launch will offer compelling agility, and economic, security, compliance and quality-of-service benefits that have been significant barriers to broad enterprise adoption of existing public cloud services.”

He added: “With the VMware vCloud™ Datacenter Service, SingTel will be able to provide public cloud services that enable audit and certification of enterprise-class QoS and security requirements. The service will be built on the same mature and proven technology that our enterprise customers use.”

To ensure cloud security, SingTel’s virtual infrastructure will be built on the secure VMware stack with VMware vShield, Layer 2 isolation, role-based access control and LDAP integration. In addition, the service will add its own auditable security for enterprises through the ISO27001 security management framework and SAS 70 Type II security compliance.
