KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, today announced the launch of their second availability zone (“Availability Zone B”) in Malaysia to expand its cloud footprint and bolster its cloud capacity, serving increasing customer demand locally and in the region. The new zone complements Availability Zone A which was launched last year in heightening cloud security and ensuring business continuity through resilient cloud infrastructure.

Alibaba Cloud will also continue to invest in Malaysia by setting up the first cloud based Anti-DDoS Scrubbing Center in August. The center will mitigate risks and offer customers the highest level of protection against stronger DDoS attacks. The new center will feature a variety of security functions including Anti-DDoS Pro, a service that defends against all types of DDoS attacks.


“I welcome Alibaba Cloud’s effort to further support and enhance Malaysia’s digital economy. The world moves ever closer towards e-commerce and we see a considerable surge in demand by local industries to participate in this new economy on a global platform. Malaysia is now pushing ahead with efforts to strengthen its infrastructure with a view towards making access to the Internet a basic human right and categorising facilities which enhance access to broadband as a public utility. The success of our trade on a global platform with assistance of companies like Alibaba Cloud depends on an efficient Internet environment. The advanced technology afforded by Alibaba Cloud opens new opportunities, which I believe will quite substantially benefit Malaysia in its efforts to raise competition and efficiency in this new industry,” said Gobind Singh Deo, Malaysia’s Minister of Communications and Multimedia.

In addition to ensuring high availability and resiliency, Availability Zone B offers payment hardware security modules (HSM), elastic computing, database, networking and monitoring services. It is also certified for SAP hosting, the German-based global market leader in enterprise application software.

“Alibaba Cloud is committed to bringing elastic, scalable and secure cloud products and services to our Malaysian customers. The launch of our Availability Zone B and Anti-DDoS Scrubbing Center will enable us to offer even greater security and choice for our customers. At the same time, the launch will facilitate knowledge sharing with local enterprises and talents on how to use Alibaba Cloud technology to achieve a highly secure and resilient cloud infrastructure,” said Kenny Tan, Malaysia General Manager at Alibaba Cloud.

These new developments in Malaysia come on the back of a number of initiatives by Alibaba Cloud. Earlier this year, the company announced the collaboration with Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) in the Malaysia City Brain Initiative to create a smart city powered by AI and big data.

About Alibaba Cloud
Established in 2009, Alibaba Cloud (www.alibabacloud.com), the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, is among the world’s top three IaaS providers according to Gartner, and the largest provider of public cloud services in China, according to IDC.

BURLINGTON, Mass. – Endurance International Group (NASDAQ: EIGI), a leading provider of platform solutions designed to help small and medium-sized businesses succeed online, announced that it is offering free SSL Certificates for customers of its Bluehost, HostGator, Domain.com and iPage brands to ensure customer data and transactions are secure for themselves and their visitors. The offer will help customers enjoy continued success online with the update of Google Chrome 68, which is more security-focused.

Beginning earlier this week, Google’s updated web browser Chrome 68 alerts users if a site does not use a secure HTTPS connection, making an SSL Certificate – an important aspect of any website – even more critical. Google’s updated browser displays a “Not Secure” message in the URL of any website that does not have a secure HTTPS connection, making visitors less likely to engage and reducing visibility in Google search results.


“Many of our customers are entrepreneurs, focused on running their businesses, not web developers adept at reacting to the ever-changing world of technology. Endurance is dedicated to helping millions of these small business owners succeed online and our SSL Certificate offer is just another example of providing our customers with the right tools and support to help them grow their businesses,” said Suhaib Zaheer, senior vice president and general manager, hosting brands at Endurance. “In this day and age, a secure website is no longer optional and SSL certification is now a ‘must-have’ for any website, which is why we’re proud to offer this to Bluehost, HostGator, Domain.com and iPage customers free of charge in light of Google’s browser update.”

Why Encryption is Critical

For the millions of small businesses online today, a “Not Secure” notice could have a dramatic impact on their business. Without a SSL Certificate encrypting the data passing between them and the visitors to their site, both parties could be at risk, and without dedicated resources for site security, small businesses may be even more vulnerable to attacks.

A simple SSL Certificate can help to protect small businesses by:

Authenticating their presence – Validates that customers are talking to their servers and not someone pretending to be them.
Retaining data integrity – Prevents bad actors from modifying the communications between visitors’ computer and business servers, or even injecting unwanted content into sites.
Encrypting data – Keeps the data passing between a site and its visitors private.
Boosting SEO rank – Improves search optimization since Google will give a boost in the ranking of websites that use an SSL Certificate.

Bluehost, HostGator, Domain.com and iPage customers will receive free basic SSL to help ensure their sites are secure, allowing their customers to interact with them with confidence. Paid options are also available for customers looking for additional SSL features, such as warranty and TrustLogo Site Seal to display on their website to show their customers that data is secure.

REDWOOD CITY, CA – Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today announced an expanded collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to offer private connectivity to AWS Direct Connect at Equinix International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers in the São Paulo and Miami metros. This expansion, along with AWS Direct Connect’s existing deployment at Equinix in Rio de Janeiro, builds upon the collaboration between Equinix and AWS in Latin America, helping customers more easily connect their IT infrastructure directly to AWS’s cloud services.

Equinix customers in the São Paulo and Miami metros can directly access AWS Direct Connect via cross connect, which is also available in Equinix data centers in 22 other markets globally. Connecting directly to a private cloud onramp via an edge node is the most effective means to ensure performance, reliability and optimal cost efficiency. Effective immediately, customers can also connect to AWS Direct Connect via Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric™ (ECX Fabric™), which provides simple, on-demand interconnection to AWS Direct Connect. With ECX Fabric, Equinix customers can discover and dynamically connect to any other customer across any Equinix location globally through an easy-to-use portal and a single connection to the Equinix platform.


Equinix has more AWS Direct Connect onramps than any other data center provider. With the addition of São Paulo and Miami, AWS Direct Connect is available to customers in Equinix IBX data centers across 24 strategic markets including Amsterdam, Chicago, Dallas, Frankfurt, Helsinki, Los Angeles, London, Madrid, Manchester, Munich, New York, Osaka, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Seattle, Silicon Valley, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Toronto, Warsaw and Washington, D.C.

The ability to directly connect to cloud service providers, such as AWS, is becoming increasingly important for enterprise CIOs in the Latin American region as digital transformation fuels the need for virtualized, on-demand, provider-based services.

Within the São Paulo metro, the Equinix IBX data centers serve as a main financial, corporate and mercantile hub for enterprises in Brazil and throughout South America. Currently, customers in the São Paulo metro and Rio de Janeiro metro are able to connect to AWS Direct Connect via cross connect, while São Paulo customers will now be able to connect to AWS Direct Connect via cross connect and via ECX Fabric.

Equinix IBX data centers within the Miami metro, including the NAP of the Americas (“NOTA”) (MI1) facility, serve as major communications gateways for companies in Latin America, the Caribbean and the Southeastern U.S. The Equinix Miami ecosystem provides customers with direct connectivity to a variety of network and cloud service providers, CDNs and enterprises.

ECX Fabric directly, securely and dynamically connects distributed infrastructure and digital ecosystems on Platform Equinix® via global, software-defined interconnection. Available across 30+ locations, ECX Fabric is designed for scalability, agility and connectivity over a self-service portal or API. Through a single port, customers can discover and reach anyone at Equinix on demand, locally or across metros.

To support real-time or mission-critical workloads, Equinix customers can use ECX Fabric to easily connect to an AWS Direct Connect location in the same metro where the customer’s infrastructure is located. For other workloads like data backup, Equinix customers can use ECX Fabric to easily connect to an AWS Direct Connect location in a different metro from where the customer’s infrastructure is located.

Direct and private connectivity to strategic cloud service providers like AWS is essential as digital transformation fuels higher demand for localized digital services at the edge. According to the Global Interconnection Index, a market study published recently by Equinix, the capacity for private data exchange between enterprises and cloud providers is forecast to grow six times faster than public internet traffic between 2017 and 2020.

About Equinix
Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX) connects the world’s leading businesses to their customers, employees and partners inside the most-interconnected data centers. In 52 markets worldwide, Equinix is where companies come together to realize new opportunities and accelerate their business, IT and cloud strategies. www.equinix.com.
