SINGAPORE Telecommunications Ltd has partnered Microsoft to offer a new cloud operating system network (COSN) to its customers in the Asia-Pacific region. The solution will enable enterprise customers to move their data and workload easily between public cloud, dedicated private cloud and SingTel's virtual private cloud.

Announcing this on Tuesday, Lee Han Kheng, vice-president of global products at SingTel Group Enterprise said the telco will be the first telecommunications service provider in Asia-Pacific to partner Microsoft to offer COSN in the region.

He added that the collaboration benefits enterprises which use widely available Microsoft applications as they can now be assured of seamless interoperability between their Microsoft-based private clouds and SingTel Managed Cloud.

"They can move their workload to any cloud which best meets their price, security, compliance and performance objectives. Our customers can keep their mission-critical data on-premises while harnessing the limitless computing power and storage of cloud on a pay-as-you-use basis," Mr Lee said.

SingTel Managed Cloud is a hybrid cloud platform which allows businesses to procure, deploy and manage IT resources. As an addition to SingTel Managed Cloud, COSN will provide enterprises the flexibility to run Microsoft applications on SingTel cloud infrastructure and achieve optimal performance, enterprise grade security, resiliency and cost savings, Mr Lee added.
