Tencent Cloud, the cloud business division of Tencent Holdings Limited – a provider of Internet value added services in China, has announced the addition of global support for delivering cloud services to Chinese enterprises seeking overseas expansion.
Tencent Cloud has “well-equipped” data centers in North America, Hong Kong, and a soon to be completed one in Singapore to provide “secured and cost efficient” IT infrastructure to support Chinese businesses expanding beyond China.
Founded in Shenzhen in 1998, Tencent went public on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 2004. Its diversified services include QQ, Weixin/ WeChat for communications; Qzone for social networking; QQ Game Platform for online games; QQ.com and Tencent News for information and Tencent Video for video content.
Companies like online game developers would now be able to launch their games worldwide simultaneously while Tencent Cloud allows users to be near their servers to ensure the best online experience.
Tencent offers two special packages for quality app developers, including free trials on content delivery networks (CDNs), dedicated consultations, and customized overseas cloud deployment solutions.
Tencent’s cloud service business achieved over 100% YoY revenue growth in FY2015 as it promoted its services to key enterprise customers from a range of industries across eCommerce, O2O services, online games, online video and Internet finance.
