Alphaus makes Malaysia its Global Development Centre

The importance of adopting Cloud infrastructure, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, is more critical than before. In 2019, worldwide Cloud infrastructure spending reached 107B USD and is growing at a rapid rate of around 40 percent annually.

However, as Cloud spending continues to grow, so is Cloud waste. There is no doubt that a shift towards the Cloud brings about many benefits, but when left without proper management, organisations may end up spending for idle and over-provisioned resources unnecessarily. Businesses globally should be looking to leverage IT to help reduce business expenses instead of merely slashing IT budget as was done in previous recessions.

Alphaus is an AWS Advanced Technology Partner and the first company outside the North America region providing solutions to address Cloud wastage. It’s solutions help AWS, Azure & Google Cloud partners and user enterprises to understand complicated Cloud spend.

Alphaus’s products, Ripple and Wave, automates and simplifies complicated Cloud billing processes, allowing us to offer insights in regards to Cloud usage with historical information and recommending cost-saving measures. With cloud adoption happening at such a rapid rate, the introduction of Alphaus and our service couldn’t be more timely and will immensely benefit businesses in the local and regional tech scene.

Backed by highly reputable investors such as DNX Ventures, NTT Docomo Ventures Inc, MUFG, Archetype, Accord Ventures, and 500 US, Alphaus recently decided to establish its Global Development Center & SEA Regional Office in Kuala Lumpur. Alphaus is led by experienced professionals, Hajime Hirose, Shungo Arai, and Mohd Atasha, collectively bagging over 30 years of tech entrepreneurial and mentorship experience.

While the pandemic has resulted in many people losing their jobs, Alphaus will continue to hire local and foreign talents as it continues to establish a presence in Kuala Lumpur and as businesses continue to adopt Cloud infrastructure rapidly.

The launch of MSC Malaysia powered by MDEC in 1996 has attracted many highly reputable foreign businesses into the country, including NTT, a Japanese telecommunications company. NTT MSC was the first foreign-company awarded MSC Status. NTT Docomo and NTT Data, are investors and clients of Alphaus respectively.

The decision to make Malaysia as its Global Development Centre appealed to Alphaus due to its world-class infrastructure at designated MSC locations, warm people, reasonable cost of living as well as access to the skilled and multilingual talents. Malaysia has been ranked the 3rd Best Global Services Location for several years in a study done by A.T. Kearney. The government’s initiative to boost the local tech industry makes it an ideal place for startups and SMEs alike.
