Since last year we are experiencing a striking increase of interest in our platform from the Asian market. It goes without saying that Asia is currently the booming region when it comes to IT deployment and with that comes the growing demand for cloud services. Backup, of course, is a cloud service that cannot be missed in one's portfolio. As a result of this BackupAgent has increased its efforts in serving the APAC region.
On the development side we are working on implementing various Asian languages, such as Chinese and Japanese. An operation that brings some new challenges compared to the current available Latin languages. We also increased our efforts to rally with our Asian customers. An example is our attendance at the WHD.asia event which is currently held (June 9-10) in Bangkok, Thailand. Here partners from the region can meet up with us and learn more about our backup solution in special speaker sessions.
Asian hosters should also consider visiting the Parallels APAC Summit 2011, which will take place this September 23-25 in Singapore. BackupAgent will second its technology partner Parallels in this three day event on which service providers get expert insight vision in the business opportunities for 2011 and the years coming.
My name is Mark Huijzers. I have been working at BackupAgent since 2006. As Partner Marketing Manager I am responsible for supporting our partners in growing their cloud backup business.
