Technology neutrality

"VADS chose to partner MIMOS because of the uniqueness of our cloud computing services, which is open, secure and inter-compatible," said MIMOS chief executive officer and president, Datuk Abdul Wahab Abdullah. "Our cloud platform built on open source software means the total cost of ownership can be reduced via cost-effective licensing, while the modular and flexible platform enables easy integration with other systems thereby making deployment easy, maximising value and reducing the risks in depending on any single vendor. Our technology neutrality will allow VADS to pick the best of the best."

"MIMOS' Cloud Computing Platform also comes with built-in security which has been patented," said Abdul Wahab. "Being the National R&D centre, MIMOS has worked on a five-year high-performance computing technology roadmap for the Ninth Malaysia Plan and we are now into our second phase which is another five-year roadmap for Cloud Computing Initiative for the 10th Malaysia Plan. We are now in much better position to play in the local and international market and not be dependent on foreign technology."

VADS' Omar said the company's cloud services will be backed by TM's nationwide and global high-speed IP network. "As well as its existing vast customer base while leveraging on VADS 14 data centres nationwide to offer high service level assurance with high redundancy for its cloud architecture. It will enable companies to have an IT infrastructure without the complexity of procurement and capital investment. The utility model would enable them to manage their spending and emphasise cost efficiency in operations."
