HONG KONG, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hutchison Global Communications Limited (HGC or the Company), the fixed-line operating division of Hutchison Telecommunications Hong Kong Holdings Limited (stock code: 215) today announced launch of Hutch-Cloud - a cloud computing service between HGC clouds in Hong Kong and Los Angeles (LA). This milestone move marks the Company's entry to the nascent international cloud services market.
HGC Hutch-Cloud service
Leveraging HGC's network strength, multinational corporations and small-to-medium enterprises alike can now enjoy ubiquitous network access, thanks to availability of HGC's international Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Bandwidth-as-a-Service (BaaS) plus value-added cloud services such as Dedicated Bandwidth-as-a-Service (DBaaS) and On-demand Virtual Leased Line (ODVLL). All this extends secure connectivity into a customer's premises and positions HGC as one of the first telecoms operators in the world to offer ODVLL.
Andrew Kwok, HGC President of International and Carrier Business, said: "Our entry to the high-growth international cloud services market exemplifies continued expansion of our service portfolio. We are working to increase the number of HGC cloud sites in different regions and expanding the capacity of our cloud service, starting with the Asian and North American markets."
He added: "Our international business capability is gradually extending HGC's role as a leading ICT service provider and carrier's carrier into the exciting new era of IT-as-a-Service, through cloud computing. Both DBaaS and ODVLL are excellent examples of our innovative application of HGC's Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS), as well as virtualisation and cloud computing technologies, to meet the dynamic needs of business customers today."
Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Bandwidth-as-a-Service (BaaS)
Hutch-Cloud, equipped with a webpage-based user administration portal, provides managed virtual computer infrastructure such as virtual machines, CPU cores, RAM and storage that enable customers to access the Internet without data usage limits. Basic services include IaaS and BaaS. A pay-as-you-go billing system and managed virtual connectivity enable businesses to turn formidable capital expenditure into more affordable and easier-to-manage operational expenditure.
Dedicated Bandwidth-as-a-Service (DBaaS) and On-demand Virtual Leased Line (ODVLL) Service
Hutch-Cloud also offers value-added connectivity services on-demand - DBaaS and ODVLL. DBaaS provides cloud-to-cloud connectivity running on HGC's VPLS network, which benefits from high network performance. DBaaS connects different cloud sites and forms an Ethernet network characterised by private and highly-secure data transmission.
ODVLL, a cloud network connectivity service, provides virtual on-demand point-to-point and secure data transmission from a customer's premises to HGC's inter-cloud platform. This is achieved via the local Internet and HGC's VPLS network to connect with another customer's premises. Data transmission is encrypted, so network security and diverse coverage become possible, as ODVLL is not bound by geography or limited to cloud-to-cloud transmission.
The fact that subscription to the above two services can be transacted via a web portal in hours rather than weeks -which has been the traditional implementation experience - means corporate customers enjoy fast provisioning of services and swift deployment of projects. In addition, the on-demand and non-contract-bound nature of these services allows users to scale managed virtual bandwidth up or down as required, giving rise to highly-beneficial flexibility and business agility in the event of a sudden surge, or fall, in data traffic.

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
