LG U+ Corp. has joined hands with Amazon Web Service (AWS), one of the global cloud computing platform providers, to target the hybrid cloud market. Hybrid cloud is a cloud computing environment that uses a mix of on-premises, private cloud and third-party, public cloud services with orchestration between the two platforms. Hybrid cloud is popular in the financial, medical and education sectors since it can secure both work efficiency and security.
According to LG U+ on May 7, the company is to release “hybrid cloud” that integrates cloud computing services at home and abroad, such as Naver, AWS and Microsoft (MS), based on its internet data center (IDC). Accordingly, each company expects to improve its work efficiency by building and managing infrastructure of important documents and sensitive data, like personal information, in the IDC and transfer other infrastructures to cloud platforms.
LG U+ uses an exclusive line that is separated from the outside when sending data between the IDC and cloud platforms. The company also provides an expert consulting service to companies seeking to introduce the service free of charge.
Park Sung‐yul, head of wire business at LG U+, said, “Hybrid cloud is perfect for especially financial companies that are sensitive to security. We will lead the hybrid cloud market by combining the competence of AWS and MS Azure, which are considered the leaders of global cloud platforms, with our IDC.”
