SK Telecom, IBM ready to offer cloud computing
SK Telecom, the leading mobile operator in Korea, and IBM Korea announced that they have completed a cloud computing environment for Platform-as-a-Service, offering not only hardware but also software to consumers to access Web-based applications, and to save computing resources. IBM Korea has offered a wide range of support, including hardware, software, services and consulting to SK Telecom’s clouding computing service.
According to SK Telecom, with this total solution, especially small and mid-sized companies which are burdened by having to set up independent service platforms, can expect to save costs and use leading-edge clouding computing service. Mobile content providers will be able to develop and test their service in a convenient environment and with lower risks due to new service launches, and entry barriers for new mobile service introductions will be reduced, the company said.
For the clouding computing offering, SK Telecom has secured about 80 servers and software technologies, such as automation programs for automatic server partitioning allocation and software installation to meet customer needs.
SK Telecom has established a target to secure 20 consumers for its new clouding computing service, including service developers and mobile content providers. SK Telecom is also considering expanding its entire IT infrastructure to the cloud computing basis.
