Malaysia-headquartered AIMS Group [AIMS], which offers data centre services throughout Southeast Asia, has received the 2014 Frost & Sullivan Data Centre Services Provider of the Year award.
During the awards ceremony in Nusajaya, Johor, Frost & Sullivan's industry manager for information & communication technologies, Mayank Kapoor, said, "AIMS has exhibited its capability to provide a full spectrum of data centre services, and creates synergistic value for each engagement with their strategic partners to offering flexible pricing options to its data centre customers."
"AIMS commitment to sustainability that has made it the first Malaysian data centre services provider to implement the environmental-friendly Dynamic Rotary Uninterruptible Power Supply (DRUPS)," said Kapoor. "The company's well rounded services offerings, state of the art data centre and innovative solutions were the lynchpins for its success in 2013."
"By bringing on board multiple carriers, carrier neutral data centres like AIMS, establish a unique value proposition in the market by offering customers the ability to work with any carrier of their choice instead of being tied down to a particular telecommunications service provider," he said.
"Carrier-neutral data centres are also more adept at providing higher network redundancy due to their non-reliance on any single telco provider - thus attracting a wider array of customers from industry verticals such as media, multi-nationals, tourism, content, gaming and more," said Kapoor.
AIMS Group chief executive officer Chiew Kok Hin, said, "It's an honour for AIMS to once again receive the Data Centre Provider of the Year Award for 2014 from Frost and Sullivan. It's been a remarkable year for AIMS as we once again achieved double digit growth with a 16 percent increase in revenue in 2013. This award is a feather in the cap to our efforts to be the top data centre in the country."
"Our proactive expansion both in Kuala Lumpur and the launch of our new data centre in Cyber Jaya (at the end of 2012), was a key factor in boosting the company's achievement in 2013," said Chiew.
"We have always emphasized carrier-neutrality as a crucial network infrastructure to support our range of managed services for our customers. Our efforts to remain carrier neutral have paid off as today we have been recognised by Frost & Sullivan for our ability to provide customers with choice and flexibility," he said.
