The Asia Pacific cloud computing market is growing at an immense pace. Enterprises and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the region need to adopt cloud-based solutions to maintain their competitiveness. Datapipe is able to help them effectively implement and manage cloud services through a compelling end-to-end value proposition. The Asia Pacific Managed Cloud Company of the Year award highlights Datapipe’s commitment to enhancing its service portfolio through partnerships, acquisitions and organic technology.
Colin Chan, Vice President and General Manager for Asia, Datapipe, said: “We are honoured to be recognised for the amazing work our team does in Asia Pacific. In addition to our enhanced service capabilities, the award reaffirms Datapipe’s broad capabilities within the region, including serving clients such as China’s largest e-commerce services provider Baozun, and Singapore’s leading electronics retailer Challenger. The award also positions us as one of the fastest growing managed cloud providers in Asia Pacific.”
One of Datapipe’s key focus areas has been to improve its service portfolio through partnerships.

Datapipe also acquired DualSpark, an AWS consulting partner, and GoGrid, an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider, to secure and strengthen its position as a leading managed AWS cloud provider.
In addition to partnerships and acquisitions, Datapipe’s focus on organic technology developments strengthen its current core service portfolio by offering cloud-based web Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and Web Application Firewall (WAF) protection services, and automation services for AWS deployment.
“Alongside other industry awards, including Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting, which recognised our strength in executing cloud migration projects, and our Asia Pacific and American Stevie Awards, which celebrated our client-centric innovation efforts, the Frost & Sullivan award has shown that Datapipe’s strategy works and has been effective for enterprises in Asia Pacific and around the world,” Colin added.
