"Whether a small or large business needs extra computing or customer interaction capacity, to cope with seasonal fluctuation, largescale campaigns or with long-term business continuity and reducing energy use: cloud services are extensible to meet and help master the situation, on demand," said Maxis' Fitri.
"Imagine a small retail business like a florist, which has a sudden influx of festive season orders," he said. "With Maxis Cloud's pay-per-use data storage and employing customer relationship management software, the florist can continue to attend to customer orders as normal. The same principle applies to the case of a large brand which seeks to launch a new campaign to last a period of time. With accounting software to keep a tight watch over numbers, and the ability to manage resources as needed through the self-service portal, the company gains better insight and keeps better control over the progress of its campaign. Cloud services make it possible for businesses to focus on meeting their customers' growing needs and on developing their core products to a higher level of competitiveness and value".
"Maxis Cloud's integration of state-of-the-art components, technologies and services from a solid foundation of technology solutions over an advanced network, enables its current offering of IaaS as the most advanced, secured and user-friendly cloud offering in Malaysia," said HP country general manager, technology services, Ramaswami Venkatesan, who added that the company was a key partner in the building of Maxis Cloud.
Venkatesan said Maxis Cloud offered businesses a unique cloud ecosystem as a managed service, featuring a self-service portal which counts among its features: a simple interface, provision of real-time statistics, a single repository of billing information, and simplified remote management in addition to a secure connection.
Maxis Cloud can be accessed through business connectivity solutions including the new Maxis Business Fibre Internet, providing enterprise with download speeds of up to 32MB [megabyte], the fastest available in the current market. It is also available in a choice of packages featuring speeds of 4Mbps [megabit], 8Mbps and 16Mbps.
