Jelastic, Inc., the first company that combined Unlimited PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) and IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) in one solution, today announced their partnership with Skali Group, an enterprise web specialist and the largest commercial open source company in South East Asia. The newly launched SkaliCloud+ solution, powered by Jelastic, offers high cost savings of up to 70 percent, thus allowing customers to focus their financial resources on a more efficient cloud solution, without having to compromise on their IT needs.
SkaliCloud+, developed by SKALI and Jelastic, is a flexible, customizable, and ready to use solution using proven world-class technologies that are tailored to the customers’ changing needs.
“Being the first Public Cloud provider in the region and with more than 17 years of experience in project deliveries, SKALI has reaped the benefits of understanding the customers better,” said Tengku Farith Rithauddeen, Group CEO of SKALI.
He added,“Customers would normally want their IT solutions fast as the market would not wait for them, and at the same time they also need to save costs so that the money can be used for other equally important matters such as enhancing their sales team or put up a new manufacturing line. Thus, we have come out with a turnkey IT solution that is immediately ready, can be customized and is flexible according to clients’ request, and more importantly, offering them an amazing 70 per cent cost saving by doing away with the initial investments for infrastructures, software and hardware.”
Unlike the other cloud providers which offer computing power on hardware, SkaliCloud+ offers utility only charges, resulting in offering savings not only on computing power, but also on hardware, infrastructure and software.
“Clients would only pay as they go for their usage without having any fixed charges. Known as PAYU (Pay As You Use), this model enables customers to enjoy the full-fledged benefits of Cloud set-up with zero capital expenditure,” said Ruslan Synytsky, CEO of Jelastic.
A report released by Gartner Inc. in early April this year had indicated that Malaysia’s total information technology (IT) spending is forecasted to grow by 7.4 per cent to hit RM68 billion this year as more companies are expected to return to IT spending to support business growth.
However, there is also a greater substitution towards lower cost and more basic devices than we have seen in prior years, the report said.
Amongst the reputable clients that are currently utilizing the benefits of SKALI’s Cloud Computing are those in the education industries, oil and gas, GLCs, multinational companies, government agencies and many others.
