ASIA CLOUD COMPUTING ASSOCIATION
The global market for cloud computing started growing in early 2010 – and hasn’t looked back since. Spending on cloud services continues to grow at compounded annual rates, and the industry has generated millions of new jobs worldwide. New innovation is being created every day with the potential and power that the cloud gives to everyone – enterprises, small businesses, and the individual. Cloud computing, once considered as a possible fad, has proven itself clearly to be a new and major trend in computing. Going forward, it is also very likely to prove itself a major game-changer for businesses.
While several global industry consortia, including the Asia Cloud Computing Association (ACCA), are actively involved in making cloud computing a reality by addressing the needs for common platforms, the ACCA is the only one doing so with a focus on the opportunities and issues in Asia Pacific (APAC).
AMSTERDAM INTERNET EXCHANGE
The Internet and all its applications have almost become part of our senses these days. Many of us feel the need to be online 24 hours a day, to be interconnected with friends, family, colleagues and customers, or with the world at large.

Established in the early 1990s as a not-for-profit organisation, AMS-IX is a neutral and independent internet exchange based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Now interconnecting hundreds of networks by offering professional IP exchange services, also called peering services. Peering enables these connected networks to offer stable, fast and cost-effective internet services to their end-users and business customers.
