Data business Talend (NASDAQ: TLND) has opened a regional cloud data infrastructure in Australia to support its expansion and growth in Asia Pacific.
The new region has been deployed at Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) Sydney data centre with the first customers set to move in this month.
Talend’s move mirrors other players who have also recently fuelled the development and expansion of cloud hosting footprints in Australia as Canberra’s data sovereignty laws continue to drive business in the cloud data centre sector as well as enterprise demand to move workloads.
According to Gartner, “the events of last year allowed CIOs to overcome any reluctance of moving mission-critical workloads from on-premises to the cloud. Even absent the pandemic there would still be a loss of appetite for data centres”.
Gartner forecasted in other research that Australian public cloud spending would reach US$7.3 billion by the end of 2021, increasing 18.4% from last year, with cloud application services (SaaS) spending rising by 16.9%..
Stu Garrow, SVP and GM of APAC at Talend, said: “Every business is now in the data business. In support of Talend’s growing market, I’m delighted to announce the addition of new cloud data infrastructure in Australia.
“As strategic partners to our customers, it is important that we offer insight on holistic, big-picture data solutions that solve business problems and give clarity and confidence in their data. I’m excited to see Talend’s continued growth and this significant investment to create a framework designed for data health solutions of our customers’ success.”
Talend runs cloud regions out of AWS in APAC, Europe and the east coast of the US. The company serves the west of the US from Microsoft’s Azure data centres.
