Asus has announced that it has planned to establish three more cloud data centers by the end of 2013. This plan by Asus is to meet the rising demands of the users for cloud services.
On Friday, in an interview to the Central News Agency , Andy Huang, a director at Asus Cloud mentioned that Asus has three cloud data centers in the regions of Taipei, Taiwan, Shanghai, China, and Los Angeles. These cloud data centers provide cloud services to about 10 million users worldwide. This facility is called the Asus Cloud. Asus Cloud is a subsidiary of Asus.
Over the last two years Asus has experienced a substantial increase in the number of cloud users. There has also been a rising demand for their cloud services considering the amount of data stored in them. Yuang explained that the new three data centers would be able to cater to this growing demand.
Huang said Asus will add the new data centers in northern China, eastern United States, and Europe. “Negotiations are underway, and possible locations in consideration are Chinese cities Tianjin, Harbin and Chongqing, Boston in the U.S., and Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Ireland in Europe”, he added.
The Director mentioned that the cloud services of Asus may break by the end of this year. The company is expecting a huge rise in the revenues over the next two years.
