Alkira and StarHub have teamed up to offer turnkey cloud networking services. This partnership augments StarHub’s enterprise solutions portfolio to enable secured and fully managed cloud connectivity networks for both local businesses and multinationals in Singapore.
StarHub is using Alkira’s Cloud Network-as-a-Service (CNaaS) for its an end-to-end managed solution in response to growing demand for hassle-free cloud connectivity from enterprise customers.
Alkira’s CNaaS makes it easier to provision and scale high-performance networking capacity across multiple cloud regions and multiple clouds, and to integrate cloud and data centre operations.
StarHub’s service leverages the Alkira solution to empower enterprises with the flexibility to scale their cloud connectivity according to business needs and the security safeguards to protect data from unauthorised access.
“Enterprise networks of the future will be in the cloud and consumed as a service. Telcos are seeing demand shift rapidly away from costly leased circuits to cloud networking, which is faster to provision, more flexible, more scalable and easier to manage than traditional infrastructure,” said Amir Khan (top), CEO of Alkira.
StarHub will offer the Alkira service as a fully managed solution with lifecycle support from design and implementation to reporting and maintenance.
“In the post-pandemic era, unified secure network connectivity to cloud is at the heart of every business. Every stakeholder needs access to the corporate assets hosted in multiple clouds and data centers. It is what enterprises need today to remove complexity from cloud networks and to enable multi-cloud at scale,” said Sander Veraar, Vice President of StarHub’s Enterprise Business Group.
