SoftLayer and DataHotel Help Japanese Companies Expand Globally
Feb 7 14
DataHotel Co. Ltd. selected SoftLayer, an IBM company, as its cloud infrastructure provider of choice, in order to expand overseas delivery of "DATAHOTEL for App." IT infrastructure plays a vital role in sustaining a company's growth as they expand into new markets. As such, organizations require a high level of support from their IT vendors as they expand globally to ensure that they can deliver stable services to their customers, keep costs low and maintain enough flexibility to adapt to rapidly changing business needs - regardless of where their IT infrastructure is physically located. With its flagship service, "DATAHOTEL for App." DataHotel manages the IT infrastructure for gaming and smartphone application developers, allowing customers to focus on development rather than IT maintenance. As smartphone use increases world-wide, DataHotel provides a global IT infrastructure that can support application development and delivery for overseas customers, without subjecting them to performance and latency issues. By teaming with IBM's SoftLayer as the company's cloud provider of choice, DataHotel will be able to leverage services from 40 data centers in 15 countries and five continents globally by the end of 2015 - including the United States and Singapore, where it is currently expanding. SoftLayer's bare metal servers allow DataHotel to support its customers' complex frameworks in a way that virtual machines could not. Further, the dedicated network and low latency that SoftLayer's cloud provides allows DataHotel to maintain the security and performance that it needs to drive global expansion.
