Retarus expands Singapore data center

Maximum performance with high availability


New York, 21/11/2016 // The Retarus Group is expanding its data center in Singapore to provide its growing customer base there with even better performance. The global provider of messaging services uses the data center to provide a direct connection for its Cloud Fax Services to local carriers and internet service providers. As a result, APAC region customers benefit from significantly lower latency times than would be possible from data centers in Europe or the US. The expansion of the data center also means that Retarus now enables European and American companies to profit from more efficient and dependable communication with their Asian subsidiaries. All data is moreover processed locally in accordance with the applicable regulations and data privacy requirements. The expansion of the Singapore data center underlines the company’s continuing growth in the APAC region.
Retarus’ Singapore data center is located in a separate and secure section on the Singapore campus of a leading international colocation provider and fulfills the highest standards for energy efficiency. Retarus exclusively uses its own equipment, which it operates itself. In order to achieve the ultimate levels of security for sensitive data, the company relies on a multilevel physical security concept. The data centre is also equipped with a failsafe power supply.

Local presence enables maximum performance

Retarus already strengthened its commitment to the Asia Pacific region only last year through a targeted expansion of the local sales, service and technology team, allowing the company to deal even better with specific customer requirements locally.

“In the course of our global strategy for growth, the expansion of the data center serving the APAC region is the next logical step,” explains Oliver Prevrhal, Managing Director Retarus Asia. “Through the ongoing growth of our Global Delivery Network we are also opening up the Asian market for European and American companies with international sites. In this way, companies including banks, insurers, logistics providers and manufacturing companies with local sites or subsidiaries benefit from the remarkably reliable and speedy performance of Retarus’ services as well as the ultimate in service quality. The local processing of data also allows businesses to comply with local auditing requirements and regulations, while also ensuring that the transmitted data is kept secure at all times.”

International corporations benefit from global flexibility

Retarus’ Global Delivery Network also comprises data centers in Europe and the USA, in addition to the data center in Singapore. All of the data centers are operated according to the same high security standards. The decision regarding where its data is to be processed is basically left up to the customer, and contractually guaranteed by Retarus. The security level also meets applicable local regulations and sector-specific requirements, such as the Singapore Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA), the American Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), EU Directive EU95/46 or the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
