DigitalOcean has chosen one of Equinix’s International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers in Singapore (SG2).

This Singapore data center deployment will allow the company to provide its existing customers with greater access to the Asian market and offer its cloud hosting services to the growing developer community in the region.

DigitalOcean is a cloud service provider. It offers cloud solutions and a seamless experience for developers with its solid-state drive (SSD) cloud server infrastructure and simplified application programming interfaces.

Having grown its customer base to 200,000 within three years and with rising demand for its services in Asia-Pacific, DigitalOcean needed a way to rapidly scale to this key emerging region.

By deploying in Singapore, a fast-growing hub for cloud adoption and hosting services, DigitalOcean said it can better serve the international developer community and utilize SG2 as a gateway to Australia, India, Southeast Asia and Japan.

In addition to Singapore, DigitalOcean is also deployed in Equinix data centers in New York, Silicon Valley and Amsterdam.

Platform Equinix should allow DigitalOcean to reduce latency to 30 milliseconds compared to 200 milliseconds if connecting via Amsterdam or Silicon Valley. This will enable DigitalOcean’s customers to offer their services to companies in the Asia-Pacific region high performance uptime.
