MEGAZONECLOUD Collaborates with VMware to Accelerate Southeast Asian SMBs' Cloud Journey

MEGAZONECLOUD, a leading cloud service provider in South Korea, has announced the release of CUBICLE, its first VMware Cloud Director Service, to assist businesses in capitalising on new growth opportunities by providing more secure, flexible multi-tenant cloud resources.

MEGAZONECLOUD's CUBICLE platform enables businesses to scale on demand by providing a single, seamless, and accessible platform powered by VMware Cloud on AWS. This enables them to move apps between environments, share infrastructure resources, access rapid disaster recovery, and scale up and down to meet business growth or spikes in demand, all without disruption, excess cost, or complexity.

As a single touchpoint to deliver the performance and capacity when and where businesses need, the service is optimised for SMBs(Small and Medium-sized Businesses) and for customers who want to easily introduce VMware Cloud on AWS service-based environments.

CUBICLE was launched in response to local enterprises' clarion call for a solution that will enable them to accelerate their migration to the cloud in a seamless and secure manner. The service allows SMBs to tap on opportunities of hybrid cloud without the economic burden and provides them with the agility to accelerate their go-to-market strategies by allowing them to trial various operating environments that may occur during cloud migration services to better prepare for those scenarios in real-life. On the other end of the spectrum, larger enterprises that currently run their operations on private cloud can also review the cost-efficiency of existing applications without large upfront costs. 

The pay-as-you-grow model reduces overhead costs for SMBs while also providing pricing and environment size flexibility by dividing their VMware Cloud on AWS software-defined data centre (SDDC) environments into multi-tenanted resource pools. Businesses can better focus on their core competencies and empower their developer teams to innovate and strategically build new features with full enterprise control and choice over which applications to migrate to the cloud while their operations run in the background.

MEGAZONECLOUD has obtained the Master Service Competency (MSC) since becoming a VMware partner in April 2020, which distinguishes partners with the deepest expertise to help identify and implement the right VMware solutions. The introduction of CUBICLE demonstrates the company's commitment to leveraging VMware Cloud technologies to better advise, deploy, and support customers in South Korea and throughout the region. This builds on the company's existing strong partnerships with its regional affiliates. MEGAZONECLOUD was able to achieve 540 billion won in sales last year with the help of its 1,600 strong partners.

"More companies running on the private cloud environment are evolving into hybrid clouds for better efficiency and scalability. MEGAZONECLOUD's CUBICLE service enhances stability, accelerates migration, and reduces cost, by delivering cost-efficient hybrid cloud environments to major companies and SMBs to enhance their service reliability and scalability," said Willy Cho, Co-CEO, MEGAZONECLOUD. "We are committed to providing reliability through CUBICLE based on our expertise in cloud technology accumulated over the years."

"The full value of the cloud comes with enabling enterprises with the autonomy to make cloud orchestration easier. With the added speed and greater flexibility of solutions like CUBICLE, businesses are able to easily manage and scale cloud resources where they are needed. This helps them manage large, upfront costs of moving to the cloud and gives them the flexibility of ramping up or down resources without purchasing a whole new host," said In Ho Jun, Country Manager, Korea, VMware.

"The Multi-cloud is now the model for modern enterprises looking to achieve rapid transformation. Our partnership with MEGAZONECLOUD only reaffirms our commitment to enable customers to move their enterprise apps to the cloud in a seamless and more secure fashion with full enterprise control, said Ajay Turki, Director, Cloud Provider Sales, Southeast Asia and Korea, VMware. By providing customers with a fast path to the cloud with best of breed platform services and consistent security and governance, we are in turn empowering them to unlock the opportunities that come with fuller visibility and control over how they build, run, manage, connect and protect their apps to achieve new levels of innovation and agility.

MEGAZONECLOUD had 540 billion in sales in 2020 and is expected to reach 820 billion in 2021 this year. It currently has about 20 affiliates with 1,600 cloud experts and has established and operated branches in 6 foreign countries/regions (USA, Canada, mainland China, Japan, Vietnam, and Hong Kong).
