“True IDC’s position as one of the top carrier neutral data center provider in Thailand, together with their national network, makes them the ideal partner to roll out the VMware Cloud on AWS service to enterprises across the country,” said Sanjay K. Deshmukh, vice president and managing director of Southeast Asia and Korea, VMware.
In going to market as both a VMware Cloud Provider Partner and AWS Advanced Consulting Partner, True IDC will provide the “full suite” of consulting, implementation and managed services to customers across Thailand.
Businesses can also leverage the provider’s cloud consulting service specific to VMware, provided by certified professional service engineers through a “simplified single invoice and billing management service”.
“Combining the industry-leading software-defined data centre capabilities of VMware, together with the elasticity, breadth, and depth of AWS infrastructure and services, the new hybrid cloud service is well-positioned to be the platform-of-choice for forward-thinking enterprises in Thailand,” Deshmukh added.
According to IDC findings, by 2022, over 61 per cent of Thailand’s GDP will be digitalised, with growth in every industry driven by digitally enhanced offerings, operations, and relationships, driving US$72 billion in IT-related spending from 2019 through 2022.
Furthermore, IDC believes that the digitalised economy will lead to more "intense competition" especially when digital disruptors are heavily penetrating into the local market.
“Cloud migration is a key component of digital transformation, and the VMware Cloud on AWS offering will enable us to provide a country-wide high-capacity digital infrastructure to our customers, thereby increasing the accessibility, availability and affordability of digital products and services to consumers at domestic and international level,” said Tanat Sangkasem, CTO, True IDC.
“We are excited to be the launch partner for VMware Cloud on AWS in Thailand and look forward to supporting our customers with the best-in-class multi-cloud offerings that will serve to enable new product innovations in furtherance of the Thailand 4.0 vision.”
Founded in 2003, True IDC goes to market as a carrier neutral data centre and cloud service provider in Thailand.
