Singtel, VMware to set up hybrid cloud sandbox
April 15, 2018 / Aaron Tan
The hybrid cloud sandbox environment will let companies test their cloud workloads and software-defined networks. Singtel and VMware are setting up a sandbox environment for enterprises to test their workloads in a hybrid cloud environment, underscoring the growing ties between Southeast Asia’s biggest telco and the virtualisation bigwig. Both companies said the sandbox – or what they call a foundry – would help to drive digital transformation efforts, such as implementing cloud-enabled workplaces to lower costs, as well as improve operations and productivity. The sandbox, which is also expected to be available in Australia and Hong Kong, will come with a suite of services, including private and hybrid cloud, multi-cloud managed security and a digital workplace offering that supports telecommuting initiatives.
