Global messaging services provider, Retarus, is expanding its data centre in Singapore to provide its growing customer base in the country with better performance. Retarus states that it will connect the data center to its Cloud Fax services to provide faster services to customers. The data center is used by local carriers and ISPs in the country.
According to the company, the recent expansion will help providers get access to the Retarus data centers in Europe and Asia, thereby reducing latency and improve services for their customers. This will also result in American and European companies to benefit from their Asian subsidiaries who can now provide faster and more efficient services.
“As a result of the expansion, Retarus now enables European and American companies to profit from more efficient and dependable communication with their Asian subsidiaries. All data will be processed locally in accordance with the applicable regulations and data privacy requirements,” the group said in an announcement.
All data will however be processed locally in accordance with existing regulations and data privacy requirements. Retarus data center in Singapore is located in the campus of international colocation provider. However, the company claims it owns and operates its own equipments. The company also claims to own and operate data centers in Europe and US and provides Cloud-based Managed Services for Email, Fax, SMS, and EDI.
In the last few months, Retarus has also continuously strengthened its commitment to the Asia Pacific region and significantly enlarged its local sales, service and technology team. With the expansion of the Singapore data center the company aims to strengthen this commitment.
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).
