“Singapore is a major milestone in G-Core Labs cloud development, our first Asian location. Thanks to the previously launched cloud clusters in the data centers of Luxembourg, Ashburn (USA) & Moscow, we ensure the minimum response time of web services in Europe, USA, CIS and now also in Asia. In total, the company plans to open about 10 additional points of presence of the cloud on all continents of the world in the near future”, notes Vsevolod Vayner, G-Core Labs head of cloud platforms.

According to him, it is also important that recently the G-Core Labs cloud has successfully achieved the certification of compliance with the requirements of the PCI DSS 3.2.1 standard in terms of storing, processing and transmitting payment cards data. This confirms the high level of protection of cards users personal information in the company’s cloud. This is especially important for the financial industry, online retail and any business that accepts payments with cards.

G-Core Labs cloud services run on Intel Xeon Gold 6152, 6252 and 5220 processors, have up to 1 TB of RAM, as well as SSD and HDD with triple replication.

As part of the IaaS model, the G-Core Labs solution provides the functionality of virtual machines, not limited in capacity, with the options of fast & seamless automatic scaling, their load balancer, system backup and data disaster recovery. G-Core Labs allows its clients to create virtual cloud networks where they can set up private clusters to do necessary computations or to isolate a certain set of applications within their own cloud network.

Within platform services, or PaaS, G-Core Labs offers its own AI platform that provides the ability to quickly create, train and deploy various machine learning models. Soon the company plans to add an option of autodeploying Kubernetes clusters for container orchestration and Hadoop-based systems for working with big data.
