About Us

About Us

We create technologies that promise customer success

Our story began with a belief and a passion: that irrespective of challenges, every business should have easy access to the best technology, best of knowledge and best of capability anywhere in the world, specially in Asia!
A chance meeting between two childhood friends over a cup of coffee in a downtown restaurant in Singapore, in utmost honesty, is where the seed was sown in 2001.
Little was known then on how the roadmap would look, or what we intended to offer. We drifted along, evolved over time and were constantly building a team that is now fully equipped to drive enterprises to the future.
Today, we are among Asia’s leading technology companies helping to transform people’s lives with extraordinary capabilities. From hybrid cloud solutions to high-performance computing to ambitious social impact and sustainability initiatives, what we do impacts everyone, everywhere. We are driven by the world we want to live in! We are powered by a workforce that values and celebrates different backgrounds, we create solutions that harness and amplify technology in the most meaningful ways.
