APAC Customers Can Now Use Performance Cloud Servers

In the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, companies are hungry for speed and reliability. We frequently hear it from our customers: improved speed and reliability set their businesses apart from their competitors. Swift application performance equips companies to win.

Simply put: Performance is key.

Starting today, our customers in the APAC region can benefit from the speed, reliability and affordability of Performance Cloud Servers  – our latest breed of cloud server designed specifically for unparalleled application performance – which are now available in our Hong Kong data center.

Performance Cloud Servers give you an edge. They empower you to architect faster, build faster, deploy faster and scale faster. And your applications will run faster because of it.

To give you an idea of what you can expect, let’s take a look under the hood:
