AIMS Group posts record 24pc revenue growth
KUALA LUMPUR: AIMS Group, Southeast Asia’s leading carrierneutral data services provider, had recorded 24 per cent growth in revenue last year, its highest ever, breaking 2015’s growth record.
Chief executive officer Chiew Kok Hin said despite the overall difficulty faced last year, AIMS managed to beat the odds with an unprecedented 24 per cent revenue growth that propelled the group well above the industry average, establishing its credibility as the leading data centre in Malay-sia.
“Being carrier-neutral also means having multiple telecommunications connectivity hosted in our data centres so our clients have the flexibility to choose their connection points and are not restricted or mandated to only one or a few.
“This makes AIMS the most interconnected data centre in the country and enables us to form a healthy client ecosystem.
“This unique factor has attracted international and local clients such as media, content, financial institutions, multi-nationals, tourism, gaming and more, who want high network redundancy,” he said.
He added AIMS recorded 14 per cent increase in new customers last year, while the data centre’s cloud-based services experienced more than 300 per cent jump in revenue.
Together with their parent company Time dotCom, Chiew said AIMS had been pushing towards regional expansion by establishing its presence in Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore and Vietnam.
Meanwhile, AIMS was announced as the 2017 Frost & Sullivan “Malaysia Data Centre Services Provider of the Year” at the annual Frost & Sullivan Malaysia Excellence Awards that was held recently.
The award was held to provide recognition to organisations which have surpassed market expectations by exhibiting outstanding performance in their respective industries in the country.
