April 16, 2014 (Wed): The AIMS Group (‘AIMS’), Malaysia and South East Asia’s leading carrier-neutral data centre and managed services provider, today announces that they have been awarded the prestigious 2014 Frost & Sullivan “Data Centre Services Provider of the Year”.
This win was received by the data centre at the annual Frost & Sullivan Malaysia Excellence Awards that was held on 15th April 2014 at the Traders Hotel, Puteri Harbour, Nusajaya, Johor.
Each year, the Frost & Sullivan Malaysian Excellence Awards is held to provide recognition to organisations which have surpassed market expectations by exhibiting outstanding performance in their respective industries in the country.
Currently in its 10th year, the Frost & Sullivan award continues to place emphasis on various select areas that drive corporate excellence – such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development.
Chiew Kok Hin, the CEO of the AIMS Group says, “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 continued to achieve 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.”
Mayank Kapoor, the Industry Manager for Information & Communication Technologies at Frost & Sullivan says, “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). The company’s well rounded services offerings, state of the art data centre and innovative solutions were the lynchpins for its success in 2013.”
“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,” shares Chiew.
Today, the AIMS Group remains one of the most connected data centre in Malaysia, with direct sites located in central Kuala Lumpur, Cyberjaya, Johor and Sabah – totalling over 50,000 square feet of data center space. All of these sites are solidly connected to all major regionals via the most diverse (being ‘carrier-neutral’) connectivity networks, in order to serve over 300 corporate clients from various industries.
Kapoor adds, “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.”
“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.”
Chiew says, “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.”
“AIMS truly believes that this sets us apart from our competitors as customers are always looking for the best options to access and transfer all the data traffic to and from their hosted sites. We would also like to thank our customers for continuing to place their trust on AIMS. We will continue to work hand in hand with our customers to provide them with customisations that can help set their business ahead of the game,” ends Chiew.
