May 22, 2014



Equinix, Inc., the global interconnection and data center company, today announced that DigitalOcean has chosen one of its International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers in Singapore (SG2) to support its expansion into the Asia-Pacific market. This Singapore data center deployment will allow the company to provide its existing customers with greater access to the Asian market and offer its cloud hosting services to the growing developer community in the region.

Highlights/Key Facts DigitalOcean is a cloud service provider. It offers fast, agile and secure cloud solutions and a seamless experience for developers with its reliable solid-state drive (SSD) cloud server infrastructure and simplified application programming interfaces.

Having grown its customer base to 200,000 within three years and with rising demand for its services in Asia-Pacific, DigitalOcean needed a way to rapidly scale to this key emerging region.

By deploying in Singapore, a fast-growing hub for cloud adoption and hosting services, DigitalOcean can better serve the international developer community and utilize SG2 as a gateway to Australia, India, Southeast Asia and Japan.

In addition to Singapore, DigitalOcean is also deployed in Equinix data centers in New York, Silicon Valley and Amsterdam.

Platform Equinix provides DigitalOcean with the close proximity it needs to reduce latency to 30 milliseconds compared to 200 milliseconds if connecting via Amsterdam or Silicon Valley. This enables DigitalOcean s customers to offer their services to companies in the Asia-Pacific region with the highest level of performance uptime.

Home to more than 975 network providers globally 190 of which are accessible in Singapore and with 19 data center locations in key Asia-Pacific markets, Equinix is the optimal choice for cloud providers who are looking to establish a point of presence in the region and better serve their customers with low-latency solutions.
