Partnership Formed to Manage Cloud Networking Service

Partnership promises hassle-free connectivity, scalability and integration for enterprise networking customers moving to cloud

Alkira, the leader in agentless cloud networking, has entered a partnership agreement with StarHub, the Singaporean telco and enterprise solution provider, to offer turnkey cloud networking services. 

StarHub is using Alkira’s Cloud Network as a Service (CNaaS) as the basis of an end-to-end managed solution in response to growing demand for hassle-free cloud connectivity from enterprise customers. This partnership augments StarHub’s enterprise solutions portfolio to enable secured and fully managed cloud connectivity networks for both local businesses and multinationals in Singapore.

Alkira’s CNaaS makes it easier to provision and scale high-performance networking capacity across multiple cloud regions and multiple clouds, and to integrate cloud and data center operations. 

Amir Khan, CEO of Alkira, said: “Enterprise networks of the future will be in the cloud and consumed as a service. Telcos are seeing demand shift rapidly away from costly leased circuits to cloud networking, which is faster to provision, more flexible, more scalable and easier to manage than traditional infrastructure. 

“We are delighted to be entering Singapore in partnership with StarHub, a market leader known for its customer service, innovation and digital advancements.” 

Singapore ranks 37th among global economies with a GDP of $397 billion generated by more than 400,000 businesses.

StarHub will offer the Alkira service as a fully managed solution with lifecycle support from design and implementation to reporting and maintenance. 

Sander Veraar, vice president of StarHub’s Enterprise Business Group, said: “In the post-pandemic era, unified secure network connectivity to cloud is at the heart of every business. Every stakeholder needs access to the corporate assets hosted in multiple clouds and data centers. It is what enterprises need today to remove complexity from cloud networks and to enable multi-cloud at scale.” 

StarHub’s Cloud Network-as-a-Service leverages the Alkira solution to empower enterprises with the flexibility to scale their cloud connectivity according to business needs and the security safeguards to protect data from unauthorized access.
