Epsilon, a privately owned global communications service provider, has established a virtual point of presence (PoP) in Singapore for HostSG, the largest web hosting company in the country. The virtual PoP (ePoP) gives HostSG’s 35,000 customers access to 500+ network operators and allows them to connect to 170 countries worldwide.
As HostSG’s local and regional SME customers grow, they have immediate access to high-quality connectivity and low-latency networks. With the addition of Epsilon’s ePoP solution, HostSG becomes a single source for the managed hosting and connectivity needs of its customers. HostSG serves media, entertainment, healthcare, education, government and other business sectors.
“We provide a simple and trusted way for customers to add international connectivity to their portfolio of services. The ePoP solution allows service providers of all kinds to expand their reach and the scope of their operation,” says Elisabeth Schwarz, Regional Director, Carrier Business APAC at Epsilon. “For HostSG’s SME customers it transforms local presence into global connectivity and allows them to rapidly scale internationally.”
In addition to the ePoP solution, Epsilon provides HostSG with colocation facilities in Singapore as well as fibre connectivity between Equinix and NTP data centres in the country. HostSG is also expanding its presence in the London, UK with support from Epsilon.
“Increasingly SMEs in Asia are going global and they need partners like HostSG to support them with both local managed hosting as well as global connectivity. In Singapore and across Asia, we see international presence as well as reliable connectivity as a key differentiator for hosting companies and this is why our work with Epsilon has been so important to our business,” says Kevin Foong, Chief Executive Officer at HostSG. “Epsilon offers the expertise in international networking as well as a simple and practical model for reaching more markets and enabling our customers to succeed.”
