Pay-as-you-go highly elastic hosting platform and on-demand burst computing infrastructure

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia — Nov 29, 2010 / ( — SKALI (, a local e-Business solution specialist company, today announced the launch of its cloud computing services in Malaysia. The offering, which will be available during December, provides ultra-flexible and easy-to-use server capacity for scalable web hosting and on-demand burst computing. Customers will benefit from a user-friendly interface that can be managed from any desktop and allows them to create cloud servers instantly and resize their capacity immediately.

With the launch, SKALI becomes the first commercial cloud hosting provider in Malaysia to offer a true public cloud-based infrastructure service, primarily targeting the SME market. SKALI’s Group Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Tengku Farith Rithauddeen said: ‘Although it is designed for SMEs, it is robust and powerful enough to handle many large enterprise web infrastructure projects’.

SKALI Cloud services allow customers the cost-efficiency of buying servers of exactly the capacity that they need today, with the peace of mind that they can immediately scale up or down as required. Capacity is billed on-demand by the hour, unlike traditional hosting contracts which tie customers to fixed capacity for up to a couple of years. The servers run any PC operating system, are fully configurable and designed to accommodate all forms of web hosting. SKALI Cloud offers a 100 percent SLA with 50x credits for downtime, supporting mission critical hosting needs where business continuity is vital.

Tengku Farith continues, “To date, businesses looking for the cost savings and elasticity of cloud hosting have had to subscribe to international players outside of Malaysia, with network latency and data sovereignty poised as major obstacles. We have designed SKALI Cloud so that it can be used by almost anyone — it allows users to configure their servers specifically to suit their requirements within minutes, not days. This reduces the typical long procurement cycle and dramatically speeds up deployment, leaving our customers free to focus on what they do best and drive their revenues.”

To mark its launch, SKALI Cloud is offering a 14 days free trial to allow businesses to experience the power and simplicity of cloud hosting for themselves. Full details are available at
